Hello. You seemed to be dissatisfied with your family and girlfriend due to some reasons, so you get irritated easily. It might also be that you are bored of the life situations. Change the way you are leading life. You can consult a doctor for homoeopathic medicines and psychotherapy. Regards.

Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Please consult a psychologist online or in person for further advice. Take care.

10 Tips to Tackle Sibling Rivalry

10 Tips to Tackle Sibling Rivalry

While siblings are the force that breathes life into any family structure, it has also been seen as a challenge of sorts to manage siblings and bring out the best in each one of them. In any family unit, there are a number of entities who need to be nurtured in a certain way to ensure that their identities are not hampered by a "one size fits all" style of parenting. Every child is different and will need to be handled differently. Besides this, there are other related challenges that will contribute to the quality of the relationships between the siblings, as well as the rivalry that they may feel towards each other when it comes to attention, achievements and varied other factors.

Read on to know the ten tips to tackle sibling rivalry:

  1. Make Friends before Birth: encourage your first born to connect even before the birth of the new baby by including him or her in the changes you see and feel. Planning for the new baby with your first born will also help in such cases.
  2. Staying positive is a big factor that will help the children in feeling confident despite their different qualities and strengths.
  3. Comparison is a big no no. Stay away from these kind of comparisons so that the children do not feel like they have to fight with each other for your praise.
  4. Time Sharing: Ensure that you divide your time well and indulge each child in his or her area of interest so that they feel like you are always there for each of them.
  5. Harmonious Start to the day: this will ensure that the children have a special bond at the end of the day. Make sure that they help each other and divide chores accordingly. The older siblings should be given the care giving tasks while the younger ones should be taught to obey them and play along.
  6. Humour them: It is a known fact that humour is the best medicine that breaks even the most tension filled atmosphere.
  7. Family Meetings: Hold family meetings to discuss important things and even intense fights so that everyone's needs and issues are addressed.
  8. Empathy: Teaching your child to empathize with others will help him or her steer clear of needless rivalry at home too.
  9. Ignore the Small: Let them figure out the smaller fights, yet always be there to address the bigger issues so that they know you are there for them.
  10. Equal Treatment: Treating them equally does not mean doing the same thing for each of them. It means giving them equal time and attention with personalized treatment to suit varied temperaments. This will also give them a lot of individual confidence which eventually kills any feelings of rivalry.

Dear, welcome to lybrate. You should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. You are disappointed due to your friends. These symptoms will stay for a week or so and slowly should vanish. I suggest counseling and depression therapy. Take care.

Hello doctor. I don't know whether I'm right or wrong. 7 years competed to my married life in this April. But in that 7 years. Starting 5 years had lots of problems in relation due to family, due to financial and lot of responsibilities in his shoulders. So we live separately I'm in my home for my studies and he in his job place. He comes once a week or month to see me. Afterwards I complete my diploma. I got job. So he take me with him to his job place. But we live for 1 week then again separate then after 1 year he come back and try to contact me. So I thought may be it's new beginning. He changes a lot, so we decided to go somewhere for 3 4 days. So on that days when I go bath he check my mobiles and social chats. So I too ask him his mobile. So when I check it he throughly chatting with his office girls and in his other history and all when check it all porn sites. I totally get upset. I scold him his colleagues.

Hi lybrate-user Don't worry. It happens in most of the marriages. Success of marriage is not depends on what you sacrifice for him and what he sacrificed for you. It always lies on UNDERSTANDING AND ACCEPTING. Try to understand him holistically both his positives and negatives. Try to accommodate his negatives. Having negatives is not a weakness but failure to aware one negatives is a weakness. Make him to accept his negatives. Then there won't be any problem. If there would be no problem between you peoples then nobody can enter between you. All the best.

Dear Shakti, Inability to concentrate may be due to depression itself. Do not diagnose yourself with one symptom. ADHD mostly starts in childhood.

My seven year old child has anxiety issues—significant being too anxious about time lines and suffers from separation related anxiety, feeling of insecurity while stepping out of home or coming across surprises/uncertainties. These have made the child very reserved and unable to make friends, easily. We seek advice to rule out any ‘anxiety disorder’ trying to take roots at these early formative years of the child.

Separation anxiety or social anxiety start at young age only, around age 5-6 years. Your child is lying in this age group and is prone to experience anxieties due to separation from home, family or significant family member, or due to being avoidant of social contexts like school or groups. As you are saying, your child seems to be experiencing some emotional problems which you said are related to avoidant behaviors. The feelings of insecurity are quite common among children, therefore, it needs to be seen that what you are telling is any clinically significant anxiety or not. Many children develop emotional sensitiveness which makes them appear anxious. But there are various aspects to a child's behavior which can be ruled out only by detailed interviewing or observation. This is possible only when you visit a clinical psychologist for proper identification of symptoms.

If you remain to yourself then you will not be able to come out from these circumstances. Try to go out, mix with friends and relatives. Try to concentrate on your studies and carrier. I know it is difficult for you in this situation but once you determine you will able to do it. Spend some time in your hobbies and some out door activities like games. Take homeopathic ignatia 30, 4 pills, 4 times daily for a week. This will help you to come out from this situation.

Masturbation is a healthy form of sexual outlet, only compulsive maturation, when u neglect ur other work and keep indulging in it is a disorder. remove ur guilt about masturbatory practises. Worldwide more than 95% of men and 70% of Women masturbate. Many men continue to masturbate even after marriage, which is not wrong, as the pleasure given by masturbation is different from sex. Many married women also masturbate, when they are not able to achieve orgasm from sex with spouse and when they are not sexually gratified. So get these facts right and remove the guilt and get on with ur work, and masturbate when u feel like.

Hi i have a friend in college who has been a patient of depression in the past. Her medications have been discontinued now. However she had developed strange sovial traits. She has become very extremely self conscious and completely lacks self confidence. She is very weak in studies, to the extent that she os struggling with graduation. Doesnt understand anything explained to her. Asks same questions again and again and again . Is very extremely lazy also. I can clearly see she needs medical aid. But probably not her parents as they r burdening her with studies and shes really facing a blunt behaviour from the society. Please twll me how can i help her psycologically and medically. Please suggest me some doctors or therapies whivh i can convey to her parents . Any sort of help would be highly highly solicited. Thanks

I don't know why they had stopped the medication in the first place. Right now she is displaying all the signs that she is having a relapse and will need to go back to her doctor (physiatrist) and get immediate attention. She will not be able to succeed in her exams in this condition. She should also seek the continuous support of a counselor to learn to cope with other challenges in life. The combination of medicine and therapy will ideally suit her recovery, and more effectively too. Do not delay any more.

I am 19 years old male I hate everyone who is close to me: friends, relatives and even my parents and sometimes impulse arises to hurt them badly, physically, mentally I don't understand what to do. So I remain very much tense these days.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your hate is probably related to some deep rooted anger that you are carrying from your childhood. It is probably being provoked further by a spurt in the production of the male hormone testosterone, which generally has a two-year duration. After that it will subside and stabilize. Discuss with your parents whether they are aware of anything that might have provoked this anger from your childhood. Then either by yourself or along with your parents do meet with a counselor and discuss the same. The counselor will educate you about emotions and help you develop skills to express your anger in appropriate ways. You need anger management classes but you also need to know of its origins. Exercise is a very good way to expend the energy of anger, so that it is under some control. But it still needs to be expressed. With regard to expression, it is better if you just spoke about it and gave it vent. No physical action of violence is acceptable and definitely you should not treat your parents to any kind of aggression. Even if your anger is justified, violence is not the way. Finally, if you are a spiritual person, it is possible to hand over your anger to God to deal with it for you: it works really well.

Suggest me some yoga technique to reduce anxiety. To get better result faster what all should I do?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Suggest me some yoga technique to reduce anxiety. To get better result faster what all should I do?
Hi. Here are few asanas which will help you in reducing the anxiety problem. -Sit in the meditation position (cross-legged or heel seat) and put the hands in the lap. The back is straight and the belly relaxed. Stop one minute every thought. Then remain in meditation, thoughts can come and go as they please. All feelings of anger, fear and grief appear and dissolve by themselves. -Dhanurasana: Lie on your stomach with your feet hip-width apart and your arms by the side of your body. Fold your knees and hold your ankles. Breathing in, lift your chest off the ground and pull your legs up and back. Look straight ahead Keep the pose stable while paying attention to your breath. Your body is now taut as a bow. Continue to take long deep breaths as you relax in this pose. But don’t get carried away! Do not overdo the stretch. After 15 -20 seconds, as you exhale, gently bring your legs and chest to the ground. Release the ankles and relax. -Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. (The mind and body are deeply connected. If the mind is occupied by thoughts and worries then the shavasana will be unsuccessful. Therefore one has to acquire the stability of the mind along with the stability of the body.) Anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like Balasan, Setu Bandha Sarvangasan, Uttanasan, Garudasan, Savasana, Triconasana, Viprita Karani, Marjaryasana, Dhyana, Bhujangasana, Anulom-Vilum, Pranayam, etc. Another stress-buster can be getting involved in any of your hobbies (may be a childhood hobby which you used to enjoy a lot!) - dancing, singing, painting, listening to soothing music, playing musical instruments, etc. (Believe me, you would really enjoy doing this alone as well or may be with your friends, kids). Medication: Take Bakson’s Calm Aid tablet/ 1 tablet daily once for 4 weeks. And do practice breathing exercises (Pranayam, Anulom-Vilum) and meditation.

You are indeed in a funny situation: the girl you love does not love you and the girl that loves you, you do not love at all. You can at least stop loving the girl who does not love you and find someone who reciprocates your affections. You cannot be in a one-sided relationship, and it is not true that every girl you love has to love you. Just like you do not like this girl who loves you, and she has to learn to accept it somehow. So be patient because the right girl will trun up eventually.

What is the best solution for people who smoke, so that the thar in lungs can be cleaned or what ia the precautions should be taken. Plse suggest me so it can useful.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. 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 gums and 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.
