Adolescent Behavior

Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
General Physician, Bangalore
Adolescent Behavior

Upon reaching adolescence, children's bodies undergo several changes and so do their minds. It is then that their minds are most, as well as least impressionable. And the daunting question regarding the upbringing of an adolescent is how to treat their constantly changing behavior?

Here are some of the tantrums adolescents more commonly throw, and what should ideally be your approach to it:

  1. Your child seems to hate you: It is very common for a phase of emotional exclusionism to prevail between 16-17 years of age approximately. And the worst thing you could do is heighten that emotion by returning the hatred. Make sure you're firm against any extremely unacceptable behavior, but at the same time, show them that you're there for them no matter what.
  2. Electronic devices become the center of their attention: Whenever you want to have an earnest conversation with your children, their attention seems to be drawn solely to their phones and computers. They feel the need to be connected to their friends and all times. Ways to monitor that are by setting limit to the maximum hours spent on devices or making them pay their own bills, which will make them more responsible rather than splurging unnecessarily. Also, if your child is not entirely secluded from the family, it is probably best not to interfere all the time.
  3. Ignoring the curfew: Your kids often stay out later than the set limit. But it is quite possible that your curfew is unreasonable when compared to other parents' curfew. Find out what the average time limit is; it may prevent your child from bearing a grudge against you. In case they still fail to respect your curfew, make sure you spill out to them what the consequences can be, like being grounded for a week. However, in certain cases, your child may be spending time doing nothing constructive, but away from home. There may be something else going on, find out what that is.
  4. Being friends with the wrong people: Sometimes it might happen that you think some children do not have a good influence on your child, but you cannot say that directly because adolescents tend to get very defensive about their choice of friends. Unless the adolescent is doing something harmful with the friend, like using drugs, let him exercise his choice. Otherwise, don't hesitate from seeking professional help to counsel your child.
  5. Being over-dramatic: Every emotion is heightened in your child and you cannot tell them that what they are whining or being overjoyed about are trivial, because that's their prime focus then. Let them realize on their own how irrational they sound or else you may risk spoiling your relation with them.

My male baby 20 months old is having Craniosynostosis, having small head size. His overall activities are normal so far, he is not talking yet but only saying Mama, Papa, Didi, he walks/ runs normally. Please let me know if I have to take any extra precautions in order to make his future life to safer side.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Follow up with Paediatric neuro physician to know if intervention is needed. Probably you may not need anything as so far growth and development is normal. It (small size head) sometimes occurs in families with normal development.

My daughter is 3.5 years old and is on feeding. My wife also wants to leave but my daughter doesn't leave pls help me to leave her feeding as all night she keeps on feeding and doesn't eat anything in evening. Pls help on the same at urgent basis.

MD - Paediatrics, Diploma in Child Health (DCH)

The feeding habit is not an easy one to get rid of. Because it has been formed from almost the first day the child is born. And the child has got very used to (almost addicted to) the feeding. As the child grows older, the feeding does not provide much nutrition or fill the stomach, but it gives them a sense of security and safety and bonding with mother. And from the child's point of view, there is nothing wrong in feeding. She has no problem. Problem is always from parents side. Unfortunately, there is no easy method for stopping feeding at this age. In very small babies, if the mother applies something bitter to her breasts, the child might reject it. Older children do not stop even with such things. There are usually only two choices 1) just stop, and let the baby cry. The baby will cry for a day or two, and then, as she realizes that her crying is of no use, and that no one is going to pamper her, she herself lets go and stops. 2) separate the child and the mother for a few days. Let the child go to the grandmother's or aunt's house. This breaks the attachment with the mother. When the child comes back, she will still look for breast feeding, but the intensity of her craving will be much less, for she has learnt to take care of herself without this feeding, and it will be easy to get rid of the feeding.
