Tragedies - How they Affect Kids?

Tragedies - How they Affect Kids?

Tragedies are a part of life and at some point in life, every person faces them. It may be in different forms like separation, crisis in relationships, financial stress, death of a loved one, some severe disease and many others. Such tragedies can cripple anybody from inside out, but the children can have a devastating effect on their lives. Therefore, it is important that you love and support them during this phase and help them face the situation well.

Here are a few ways of dealing with the effects of tragedies on kids:

  1. Talk to them, honestly: It is important to assure the kids that they are not alone in this world and should remember that there are many other people who love them. In case of a tragedy, kids usually have a lot of pent-up feelings inside them. You need to talk to them and make them understand that instead of keeping those feelings to themselves, they should talk to you or anyone they trust. Venting out will enable them to relax.
  2. Act on truth: It is very important to teach the children that no matter what happens in life, there is a chance to start afresh. The kids should be surrounded with people they love, as it will make them feel a little relaxed and open. Also, it is essential for them to know that there’s always hope and not all is lost.
  3. Remain calm: After a large scale tragedy, your children will usually look up to you regarding, how to react in a situation. Although it is okay for your children to see you sad or in grief, but you should keep as calm as possible and do not react intensely. This will help keep them calm and less anxious.
  4. Reassure your children about safety: You should make your children understand that they are safe and nothing bad will happen to them. They must be reassured that no harm will come upon them as you are always with them.
  5. Maintain normal routine: It is essential to give your children a feeling of normalcy. You must try to maintain their normal schedule with the usual dinner time, bed time and school time. You must pay special attention to them to make them feel more secure. You should spend extra time with them and always be there for company and reassurance for any factor.

Children are affected severely by any kind of tragedies as they are fragile and immature. Tragedies disrupt the balance of life, but you must try to make your children feel the crisis as less as possible, so that they get less hampered emotionally. A troubled childhood affects the healthy growing up of a child. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!

If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical to your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. As regards the concentration you are sure to have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it; together with depression I can imagine your problems. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling.

Dear Lybrate user. You said sometimes you get stupid kind of thoughts. These stupid kind of thoughts are part of life and everyone gets such stupid kind of thoughts. You can't stop them completely. When stupid and unforeseen things happen in your life, stupid thoughts do come. You cannot control what happens where. Instead we learn how to overcome those stupid thoughts. Cognitive therapy should help you. Take care.

When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. The right brain also indulges in a lot of lateral thinking, which is normally good for creativity. But in your case it will creatively increase the problem and make you more disturbed. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions.

Dear Doctors, I always feel insecure and I be impatient about the things and my relatives or bf. Few have suggested me not to express my love in words, they also told me to hide my needs and anger from the people shok I love, they advice to speak less. But the problem is that I can't do it any more as suppressing myself and hiding my feelings and anger is hurting me like hell. And I can't take it as a justified statement that I should not reveal my needs to my own people, I feel my own people including my bf should be the first one to know about all my needs. Why do I have to hide my nature from my own people to keep them there in my life. I really want them to be with me till I die but I just can't suppress myself like this any more. What do I do please suggest.

You need to vent out your feelings and Thoughts by practicing different strategies. First of all identify your thoughts which make you angry. You must be holding some demands n expectations from urself and others. Ask urself can you change or hold other's thinking n behavior? Then what can you change? Can you change ur thoughts n perception? Think practically n rationally. It always helps to remain calm. Anger is a bunch of lots of emotions. Therefore to work on anger, first you need to learn to manage all negative thoughts n emotions. Practice different relaxation techniques, yoga, deep breathing, stretching exercises to relax urself. Learn to express ur needs n feelings in a constructive and assertive way. so that it won't affect ur relations still ur closed ones will understand what u need n feel.

Your loss is completely understandable. However with any such stress in life we need to learn to cope up and moron gradually. However it's eels you have been unable to do so. If you remain anxious and depressed and feeling sad for your loss even after 1 year of that trauma, you certainly need help. I would suggest you to consult a psychiatrist without much hesitation.

Dear lybrate-user, excessive thinking leads to stress. Stress is caused for head pain. So better to think too much for one aspect. Some problems will not solve immediately. It needs time. Up to that we should wait. Excessive thinking leads to so many problems. You are not in depression now. If you continue the same status there is a chance to get the depression. So it is in your hands. You want to be depression or not. So feel always flexible. In the world everyone has their own problems. So many suffer from their problems when compare to their problems your problems are very low. Think like that feel always happy. Do not go for medicine for small reasons it may be addiction. So feel comfortable. Enjoy the every movement of life in a positive manner. Ok best of luck.
