My 5 and a half year old son says 'no' to everything me and my wife says. He just had a new brother 3 months back. How do I deal with him?

It is possible that the young brother?s arrival has had an effect. You must help him understand, feel and know that he is still loved and wanted. The baby will obviously attract attention being a helpless child and all that, but he will feel jealous and experience the deprivation and feel threatened by him. He is therefore testing your limits to see under what circumstances and up to what extent you will tolerate him; or that you would finally reject him. If you do this, he will be convinced that he is not important. Don?t ever fall into that trap. He is innocently asking for attention and appealing for you not to forget him. He is not choosing a very helpful way going about it, but being a kid he will not know any better. You must oblige him and make an extra effort to reassure him. Then gradually you can get him to like his kid brother, to spend time with him, and to even entertain him.

If there is prolonged sleep disturbance, you need to check with a psychiatrist because it could be a symptom of psychiatric disorder. You may get help from counselling to release stress which is underlying cause of many sleep difficulties.

Depression is causing serious damage to my health. I want to get rid off it. Please help me out?
Hi lybrate-user, Most importantly seek a help of a psychologist to deal with your depression and depressive thoughts, get yourself screened for depression, if advised seek psychiatric treatment- i. E medication. You have to recognize your symptoms whether they are really indicative of depression. Start a journal. Starting a journal can help you reflect on your depression and feelings and monitor your sensations throughout the day. Make a goal of writing in your journal at least once a day, preferably in the evenings, when you can wrap up whatever the day brought you. Writing in a journal can make you feel more in touch with your thoughts, less alone, and more aware of the things that make you happy or unhappy Find a new passion, surround yourself with positive people. Improve your sleeping habits. Improving your sleeping habits can be a drastic improvement for your mental health. Work on finding a sleep schedule that works for you. Here are some things that you can do: Start going to bed and waking up at the same time every day and night. This will make you feel more well rested and will make it easier for you to fall asleep and wake up. Start your day off on the right foot. Spring out of bed and drink a glass of water right away instead of hitting snooze five times before you roll out of bed. Develop an effective pre-sleep routine. Wind down in the hour before bed by shutting off your television, putting away your phone or tablet, avoiding loud noises, and reading in bed. Limit or eliminate caffeine from your diet, especially after noon. Caffeine will make it harder for you to fall asleep. Avoid taking naps that are longer than half an hour, unless you need them — they will only make you feel groggy and more tired. Exercise. Exercising for just thirty minutes a day will have a dramatic impact on your physical and mental health. Exercising can give you more energy and make you feel more motivated throughout the day. Find an exercise plan that works for you and stick to it. Even taking a walk for just 20 minutes a day can help you get some exercise while you reflect. Find a gym or workout friend. This will make the experience more enjoyable. Set a goal when you work out. Maybe you can have a goal of training for a 5K, or learning how to do a tricky yoga pose. Don't worry you will overcome it. All the best.

How can quit smoke. Is it green tea helpful for quitting smoke?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist
Ask Free Question
Green tea is good for various reasons but never to help quit smoking. When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Your sexual attraction towards other males is not because of your thought process. It is probably because of your sexual inclination, or some childhood experience and it is your physical need. I can imagine that you are not comfortable accepting this fact. Actually, to find out whether you are gay or heterosexual, it is advisable to talk to a counsellor or a sexologist. Some encounters with males in you childhood does not make you gay, but now how you feel matters more. So please consult a counsellor or a sexologist. Till then do not get married, because you will not be happy in heterosexual marriage if you are gay. If in spite of knowing that you are getting attracted to males if you marry a girl, you will have trouble when she will find out. Once your sexuality is understood by you, you are likely to get rid you your depression and anxiety.

I want to ask about weed. On internet I have seen many health benefits of weed and even doctors also prescript weed as smoke. Is weed better than tobacco?

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Weed is addictive and is as bad as nicotine. Weed addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan. Take care.

Antidepressants at the earliest should be given. Nowadays many new latest drugs are available which can treat his depression that too with minimal/simple side effects. Counselling after few weeks of antidepressants also will help. He should try to be social, follow his hobbies, do some sporting activities etc. By doing these he can overcome depression.
