Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - How To Know If Your Child Is Suffering?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - How To Know If Your Child Is Suffering?

It is sad to hear of a loved one suffering, but it is downright painful if that someone is your own child. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a condition which was not paid much attention to for many years. The fact remains, however, that ADHD is something that can adversely affect the life of your child and their relationships. One example is Olympian Michael Phelps, who had been diagnosed with this disorder. In order to know if a child does suffer from it, it is important to pay attention to a few signs.

Signs You Must Not Ignore

  1. To start off, if a child seems to be fidgety all the time, it is a good sign that there is a chance that he or she may have ADHD. While it is true that children often display feelings of excitement as well as a degree of restlessness most of the time, the ability of a child suffering from ADHD to sit still, quite literally, surpasses any normal standards for even a very restless child who does not have ADHD.
  2. As a matter of fact, most children who are diagnosed with the disorder are diagnosed by the time they are 7 or 8 years old. For many kids, this has something to do with the signs that are displayed once they join school, which are related to their behavioural habits. For example, children who have ADHD are likely to show their inability to await their turn in a group activity. As a result, they are likely to interrupt not only their peers, but also their teachers to say express their thoughts.
  3. For those who are not well versed with this issue that so many children face, the behaviour of a child with ADHD come across as being outright selfish. However, this is really not the case. In many cases, since children with ADHD find it difficult to follow plans and set out tasks, their inability to do so is often considered as lack of intelligence. Such judgements can lower the morale of the child and make him or her feel inadequate, insecure and left out.

Many children who have ADHD are not loud and usually do not stand out in a group. Rather, they are more likely to be the quiet ones who daydream. All this can have major effects on the academic record of the child, and it is fair to say that he or she is quite likely to under perform compared to the rest of the students in the class.

If you see any of these signs, do not be alarmed. However, do seek a doctor’s opinion to know for sure if your child has ADHD. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Can I give junior horlics to my baby, who is one year old? What kinds of food he should have in this age?

Can I give junior horlics to my baby, who is one year old? What kinds of food he should have in this age?
These are of no benefit other than changing the taste. Give whatever you eat in a form which he can eat easily. Vegetables, pulses, rice, egg etc. Soups good. Juices do not benefit much. Reduce milk.

My baby 7 months old and he looks very thin. How can he become fat what can I feed to him.
Looking thin is a relative term which is more often for loving parents. Growth is assessed by weight and height. Start well coocked home made mashed solids and semi solids, if not yet started.

My 6 month old baby frequently passes watery stool after duration of 3 to 4 days. Is this normal happening.

Hi lybrate-user, babies of 6 months old who feed only milk can pass stool 6-7 times a day or they may not pass stool for many days. But stools are not watery. But if baby is active and gaining weight normally it is no matter to be worried. Maintain hygiene when you nurse your baby.

If he remained fully conscious and did not vomited or any other symptoms then you should not worry much and just be cautious of any further occurences. You also can give one dose of homoeopathic medicine Arnica montana 200. It is best for removing bad effects of injury.

If the diagnosis of typhoid is confirm and fever is persisting despite cefixime and ofloxacin, he may need injectable antibiotic of higher group like ceftriaxone/meropenem depending on the severity.

Hi Pallavi Head injury may cause any kind of symptoms depending on the area of inury if any in brain. He needs to be treated properly. Homoeopathic treatment offers good solution for this problem as it cures the effects of injury to brain in any form. I suggest this medicine. Give for one week and report after that. 1. Nat-sulph 200/1dose/stat. 2. Saclac 30/ thrice daily for 7 days.
