I am 37 years old, happily married with two kids. I am a chartered account and working in a us based mnc in delhi at a good position. I live in a joint family with my old parents. For some time now, I have been facing a problem that is bothering me big time. I can? t easily focus on something that? s written or remember it. And this has been happening for at least couple of years. For eg I work with numbers day in day out but if you ask me some information (like sales of my company for the last month) it would be extremely difficult to recollect that for me. Another example that I could give which can give you some idea is, if I am reading something, I have to put lot of focus to read it otherwise even the text becomes just an image which I can? t read properly or remember. This doesn? t mean that I can? t see properly or my eyesight is weak but somehow my mind can? t comprehend. I remember everything that I have learnt over the years but I strongly feel that I am not able to add anything to my memory for the past two years. And because I don? t remember things easily when I am interacting with colleagues/seniors, many times I end up in a situation which is embarrassing like when I have to say that let me look up into my computer and get back to you. I am not saying that I need to be a superhero with excellent memory but I wasn? t like this earlier. I am sorry I am not sure if I have able to explain my problem properly but its growing day by day. I have a paunch with waist size of 38, my height is 5? 11? and weight is 90 kgs. I drink twice a week and don? t do any exercise at all.

5 Reasons Of Sibling Rivalry!

Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist, Delhi

From the perspective of a brother-sister relationship

The relationship between siblings is quite a special one; they share the same childhood, in the same home, with the same parents. Having each other’s back, sharing and keeping all the secrets. But just like every relationship, even this one has its ups and downs. Even though there is a protective, caring and an affectionate relationship between the brother and sister, yet at times there are various differences that occur within the relation, and hamper the bond. The sibling rivalry between the brother-sister relationship can be a major factor affecting the bond.

The sibling rivalry manifests even before the birth of the second child, resulting in the child to feel being neglected by the parents, being jealous of the sibling and making numerous attempts to seek the attention of the parentsParental treatment, birth order and personality of the child majorly play role in sibling rivalry. It’s more intense when both the children are intellectually gifted. It can occur in the same gender also. Such rivalry usually continues throughout childhood and can be very frustrating and stressful to parents. Various reasons are found to be responsible for sibling rivalry, some of them are:

  1. In our society, we still discriminate vastly between the genders. The everyday household tasks such as cleaning, cooking, washing are generally given to the female, while the responsibility for the males is to provide monetary fund and be the pillar in supporting the family. This has an impact on the siblings at an early age, leading to a perception of supremacy associated with masculinity.
  2. The parents giving various kinds of perks and liberties to the child, such as sufficient monetary fund being saved for the education of the male child or the marriage of the girl child, resulting into jealousy or angertowards the opposite gender sibling. At times even extra allowances such as freedom to travel alone even during the odd hours can create differences.
  3. Even though female might have the same level of competence as the male child, the stigma created by the society puts them in a very disadvantageous situation. Most Indian families have the belief that females do not have an exposure to the real world or are not equally intelligent, thus depriving them of the right to speak during the family decision making process.
  4. Even comparing the two siblings by the parents has a similar harmful consequence, including the competition to succeed and prove their self-worth. Competition and Comparison between the siblings can occur when they see that the child with more marks, positive behaviour, and more obedience is appreciated by the parents.
  5. At times the differences between the siblings are also shaped after the marriage of either or both the siblings. The addition of a new member results in the creation of the division of attention and love, creating more the grievances between the siblings.

At times, the need for parental attention by the sibling is so much that they pick up fights with the sibling. It becomes important for the parents to help their child develop in a way that they maturely handle the shared parental attention as well as get along with each other. When the parents are unable to handle the situation, it is advisable to seek for professional help.

Early Childhood Trauma And Its Symptoms!

Early Childhood Trauma And Its Symptoms!

The problem of early childhood trauma refers to disturbing experiences that take place in children during 0-6 years of age. The traumas that young children experience can be the effects of natural disaster, war or accidents or that of intentional violence like sexual abuse, domestic violence or physical abuse.

How Does this Condition Impact Childhood?

Traumatic events have a significant impact on your child's life and can break his sense of safety. The problem has been linked with a decrease in the size of the brain cortex. This is the part of the brain that controls several complex functions like thinking, consciousness, memory, attention, awareness, and language. The changes that occur as a result can affect your child's IQ as well as his or her ability to control emotions. As a consequence, he or she may harbor feelings of danger and become more afraid or it may manifest in other personality issues which are not very obvious.

How do you identify this condition?

Generally, children who suffer from traumas face problems in regulating their emotions and behaviors.

They may display signs like:

- Fear of new situations
- Being clingy to their parent(s) or somebody close
- Become easily frightened

- Display aggressive and/or impulsive behavior
- Are difficult to comfort
- Display deterioration in behavior and functioning
- Easily forget newly attained developmental skills
- Difficulty in sleeping

Depending on the age during which your child may go through a traumatic event, he or she can exhibit signs relevant to his or her age.

For instance:

Children aged 0-2 years may also display reactions like poor verbal skills, memory problems, excessive temper, experience nightmares, etc.

On the other hand, children aged 3-6 years can face difficulties in learning as well as develop poor skill and learning disabilities, face problems in social interaction, may be unable to trust people and so on.

If this condition remains unattended or unresolved for longer, it may create personality issues and can deeply impact the individual's relationships, or equations in the society, as they grow up and even after they become adults. In fact, many behavioral problems can be traced back to childhood trauma. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Its just your behaviour. You can improve it by controlling your anger. Engage yourself in social gatherings, meet new people. Engage yourself in activities you like. Try to discuss your problem with your trusted ones and find out possible solution. It will definately suppress your anger.
