Sir, My elder daughter, age 24 years is a patient of schizophrenia and is under treatment at PGI Chandigarh for the last 10 years. Presently she takes clozapine 200 mg single dose daily. Her problem is somewhat controlled but not totally cured. My younger son aged 17 years ,who is presently studying in class 12th (Non Medical stream) is quite intelligent and is presently taking coaching for Joint Entrance Exam of Engineering stream. His problem is that while he is quite at ease with Maths and Physics, he does not fare well in Chemistry. In weekly coaching/school test he does not fare well in Chemistry. Whenever, his results are out he is quite upset and gives up studying other subjects also. He does not want to go school/coaching institution and quarrels with his mother. When scolded for this, he becomes abusive and makes illogical arguments. However, after some time all is normal and he agrees to go to school/coaching institution . He does perform well in studies but again he is not consistent with his studies for the reasons mentioned above. Sometimes he is so optimistic that he he boasts of cracking IIT exam. But gives up easily when confronted with non performance. His lifestyle is somewhat similar. Sometimes, he cares well for his outlook, dress etc. But on another occasion, he does not care about his personal hygiene also. This issue was also discussed by me with Consular of my daughter at PGI Chandigarh, who asked me to bring my son for check up as soon as it is possible, but the problem is that my wife differs with me and says that our son has no psychiatry problem and it is just a behavioral problem and that would subside with the passage of time. She also fears that taking our son to PGI Chandigarh would make him dependent on medicines (with side effects) life long , as is the case with our elder daughter. Here in this context, I would request you to kindly advise me the right course. Thanking you.
I feel really tired and lazy all the time. I keep away from my friends and relatives all the time even though they are nice to me. I feel like I do not have anyone to share my feelings with and I even keep away from my girlfriend at times. I feel as if I am not being loved enough and that I am not being recognised by my relations. I am starting whether or not to consult a psychiatrist. Please help me.
I think I am addicted to alcohol. I am 25 years old. I can stop drinking for 10 days after that I really needed the alcohol.
I got addicted to smoking since last three years. I can't resist it. What should I do get off of it? Please suggest me.
While children can light up your life with joy and laughter, sometimes they can appear to be monsters with their temper tantrums and their stubbornness. Stubborn or obstinate children can be very difficult to deal with and could end up disrupting your life as well. However, there are a few techniques that mental health professionals have suggested that can help you deal with your stubborn and obstinate child.
These are mentioned here briefly
Hear Them Out: It’s often the case that children tend to be stubborn or obstinate and start screaming when they think they weren’t heard. This makes them feel helpless and thus forces them to bottle up and then take out their frustration by either not doing what you are telling them to do or doing exactly the opposite of that. The best treatment in this scenario is to hear them out and patiently try to resolve their problems.
Ensure They Follow Your Example: If one or both of the parents are extremely stubborn, then this would translate into a stubborn kid as well. Doctors have said that obstinacy is often in the genes. Also, environmental influence is a big deal for them as well. Ensure that you are flexible enough with your partner and the child picks up on it.
Teaching Kids About Give And Take: This is a very important lesson in life as it teaches kids to choose priorities. If you teach your kid to always give, then it sends a message that putting themselves second is the best option. However, if he or she is always fighting to take first priority, it may lead to too many conflicts later. Thus it is best to teach them that it is okay to fight for what is yours but also let others have their way sometimes. This attitude will help them develop a balanced attitude and lessen their obstinacy.
Give Them The Illusion Of Choice: Children are very malleable when it comes to their minds and you can use this trick to do certain things that make them appear they have some control when they actually may not. For example, if they are unwilling to go to sleep, you can say that you cannot make them sleep, but they have to stay in bed. Your child would then automatically fall asleep after some time due to boredom which would end up serving your purpose.
Use Scolding Or The Parent Card As A Last Resort: If any of the techniques mentioned don’t work, then you can scold or warn your kid with consequences which may result in capitulation. For example, if you child is not willing to come back and study, then try and stop them from whatever they were doing and make them sit with their books. This lets them know that certain areas you will absolutely not compromise on and they will understand the limits better.
