B Question by B on May 23, 2023Hindi

Doctor my 10 year old son is in 5th grade. Since his childhood he has been a very active kid. For the past 18 months he is finding it difficult to concentrate on tasks involving his mind like board games/home work etc. Even at home he would be constantly engage in physical activities and would not sit idle. His handwriting is horrible and his grades have hit rock bottom. Should we consult a doctor?

Ans: Dear B, Kindly look into the following:
1. His friend circle
2. Have a chat to find out what's troubling
3. Take into account conflicts at home, family dynamics and his spending time with technlogy.
rue out the above and meet a developmental paeditrician or child psychologist for the root cause.

Hi My son is 9 years old and since last 6 months we have seen he is not listening to us and same is happening in school and his tuition also he is not restless but he tries to ignore what we say or teacher says which is also impacting his studies and he is not able to concentrate what could be done to regain his listening power
Ans: I understand that this situation is causing you a lot of distress. It's not uncommon for family members to be involved in a newlywed couple's life, but it's important to set healthy boundaries and communicate openly with each other about what is acceptable and what is not.

It's possible that your wife's sisters may not be aware of the impact of their behavior on your marriage, or they may not realize the boundaries they are crossing. Have you tried discussing your concerns with your wife and her sisters in a calm and respectful manner? It's important to express your feelings and set clear boundaries on how much interference you are comfortable with.

In addition, it's important to have an open and honest conversation with your wife about how her family's behavior is affecting your marriage. It may be helpful to seek the assistance of a professional counselor to facilitate this conversation and provide guidance on how to set boundaries and communicate effectively.

It's also important to remember that change takes time and patience. It's possible that your wife may need time to adjust and understand the impact of her family's behavior on your marriage. With open communication and a willingness to work together, you can find a way to navigate this challenging situation and build a stronger, healthier relationship.
