Effective treatment for Behavioural problem at Mindheal Homeopathy
BEHAVIOURAL PROBLEMBehavioural Problems - The signsBehavioural problems can occur in children of all ages. Very oftenthey start in early life. Toddlers and young children may refuse todo as they are asked by adults, in spite of being asked many times.They can be rude, swear and have tantrums. Hitting and kicking ofother people is common. So is breaking or spoiling things thatmatter to others.Some children have serious behavioural problems. The signs ofthis to look out for are: If the child continues to behave badly for several months or longer, is repeatedly being disobedient, cheeky and aggressive If their behaviour is out of the ordinary, and seriously breaks the rules accepted in their family and community, this is much more than ordinary childish mischief or adolescent rebelliousness.This sort of behaviour can affect a childs development, and caninterfere with their ability to lead a normal life. When behaviour isthis much of a problem, it is called a conduct disorder.Children with a conduct disorder may get involved in more violentphysical fights, and may steal or lie, without any sign of remorse orguilt when they are found out. They refuse to follow rules and maystart to break the law. They may start to stay out all night andtruant from school during the day. Teenagers with conduct disorder
may also take risks with their health and safety by taking illegaldrugs or having unprotected sexual intercourse.This kind of behaviour puts a huge strain on the family. Childrenwho behave like this will often find it difficult to make friends.Even though they might be quite bright, they dont do well atschool and are often near the bottom of the class. On the inside, theyoung person may be feeling that they are worthless and that theyjust cant do anything right. It is common for them to blame othersfor their difficulties if they do not know how to change for thebetter.What causes oppositional defiant disorder/conduct disorder?A child is more likely to develop an oppositional defiantdisorder/conduct disorder if they: Have a difficult temperament; Have learning or reading difficulties - these make it difficult for them to understand and take part in lessons. It is then easy for them to get bored, feel stupid and misbehave; Are depressed; Have been bullied or abused; Are `hyperactive - this causes difficulties with self-control, paying attention and following rules (see Factsheet 5 on ADHD and hyperkinetic disorder).Parents themselves can sometimes unknowingly make thingsworse by giving too little attention to good behaviour, alwaysbeing too quick to criticise, or by being too flexible about the rulesand not supervising their children adequately. This often happens ifa parent is depressed, exhausted or overwhelmed.
THE AGGRESSIVE CHILDAggressive behaviour is a normal reaction in young children. Itemerges most often when children feel the need to protect theirsafety, happiness, individual position within the family or group,their inability to verbalize frustration or as a learned response i.e. aparent or leader gives into the childs demands in order to stop theundesired behaviour. By 7-9 years of age children are fairly wellcontrolled, so if the child still engages in frequent,Often children who strike out physically cannot or do not knowhow to control their tempers.Acknowledge the childs feelings. Even if the behaviour isunacceptable, the childs feelings are real, so do not minimize thefrustrations or concerns of the child. One approach might be "Iknow that in this situation you feel like hitting, but hitting is notacceptable, why you don’t tell me how you feel".SILLY/CLOWNINGThere are no real statistics as to the number of children who actrelatively silly at various ages. Also, there are no estimates as towhat percentage of time a child must act foolishly before thebehaviour is considered a problem, making it very difficult todetermine whether constant clowning should be considered aproblem or a sign of general immaturity. Therefore, the concernabout clowning/silliness becomes a combination of the amount ofthe childs behaviour and the parents and leaders attitude andtolerance about it. Children who feel negatively about themselvestry acting like clowns to obtain attention from others. Negativeattention is better than no attention at all. Peer influence is verypowerful. Peers very often encourage or even provoke a child toact foolishly. Positive or very negative reactions from peers,respected adults, or parents can reinforce clowning in the childwho is lonely and desperate for attention. Silliness is very commonin young children and absolutely contagious when friends act silly.
For some children silliness can continue as a habit if they are nottaught appropriate humour. These children may believe that theonly way to get the attention that they crave, is to be laughed at.Similarly, they may feel that the only way to be humorous is to bea clown. There is no question that a constant clowner can be verydisruptive to a program.Document Source: http://www.mindheal.orgMindheal Homeopathy is a leading homeopathic treatment center inMumbai, India.
