Behavioral Problems in Children Dealt with Homeopathy and Bach Flowers

February 16, 2013  by: Xavier  Points: 25   Category: Medical    Views: 1122

Every society, school and family has children with behavioral problems. Here are some guidelines on how to help these children with homeopathy and Bach Flower Remedies.

         

A typical incident:
I got a phone call from the headmistress of the local primary school. “Please do come to the school office today. We need to discuss something.” She sounded urgent and worried. So I went to the school office expecting a complaint about anyone of the children supported by our organization. Right enough, she told me about an unpleasant incident that had taken place in the school. “Sorry to trouble you,” she said, “but I needed to discuss this point with you. It is about your ward, Deepak. I am sad to tell you that he has stolen money from the school office. After deliberating on the misbehavior the management has decided that Deepak cannot be kept in the school.” However, the headmistress allowed the boy to appear in the primary school examinations, which came only after a month. The boy was promoted to standard five and was transferred to a high school in another neighborhood. Parents and people entrusted with care of growing children have to deal with such situations often.

Behavioral abnormalities in children:
Some children turn problematic for their parents at home and for their teachers in the school on account of their abnormalities. For example, they may be found guilty of:
1. Stealing
2. Damaging school property
3. Being excessively angry
4. Lying
5. Being disobedient to parents and teachers
6. Quarreling with classmates on petty points
7. Hurting other children
8. Hurting animals
9. Being sexually active prematurely
10. Arguing with teacher and elders

Origins of abnormal behavior:
One may wonder – how do children acquire such anti social habits in their early life. Reasons may be of multiple origins - physical, psychological or social. I enumerate below a few of them:
1. Heredity: If parents or grandparents had the habits, the child may most likely acquire them.
2. Quarreling parents: Quarrels between parents cause depression in the child, which may lead him to abnormal behavior.
3. Rejection by parents: A child rejected by his parents may harbor anger against them in particular and all others who take their place.
4. Exploitation: An exploited or abused child may most likely develop abnormal habits.
5. Traumatic incidents in the family: Death or separations in the family may affect a child adversely.
6. Failure in school: Failure to perform in school may cause frustration in the child and lead him to such unwanted behavior.
7. Lack of self esteem: Children lacking self-esteem for any reason may acquire undesirable habits.
Usually, such disturbed children have problems in their schooling. They are distracted in the class, find it difficult to understand and learn a lesson. They are scolded or punished for not doing their work. They develop dislike for their studies, school, school authorities and teachers. They vent their anger on others or on the school property and find pleasure in disturbing their fellow students. They break discipline and get rusticated from their schools. A child of this kind doesn’t easily mix with the children of his age and has no respect or love for elders. If these symptoms are not dealt with in childhood, children may face many kinds of problems in their adulthood. Usually, they find it difficult to adjust in any social set up. They find themselves incompetent in living up to the demands of any relationship. They often acquire antisocial habits, break laws and may even take the path of crime.

Responsibilities of parents and educators:
Parents and educators have an important role to play in saving the children from unhappiness in their life. I propose a few indications for parents and educators to help children get rid of some of these abnormalities.
1. Treat the child with respect and understanding.
2. Maintain cordial and affectionate relationship with the child.
3. Guide the child tenderly with love.
4. Praise and reward the child for good behavior.
5. Avoid punishing, being rude or scolding the child.
6. Keep the child away from polluting environment or harmful company.
7. Take professional help if needed

Remedies:
In our children’s home I use Homeopathic and Bach Flower remedies to help children with behavioral problems. In most cases these remedies have brought about positive results. I suggest below remedies for oft seen cases.
1. Excessively angry, flings things in anger: Staphisagaria
2. Lying and stealing habit : Opium
3. Angry, cruel, hurting others: Syphilinum
4. Cruel and revengeful habit: Acidum Nitricum
5. Rebellious and disrespectful habit: Tarentula Hispania
6. Dirty, cruel, aggressive, bites nails: Strammonium
7. Likes to hurt himself : Aurum Metallicum
8. Premature sexual activities: Bufo Rana.
9. Lacking self respect, lacking self confidence, teasing others: Lycopodium
10. Ill effects of death, trauma, separation in family: Ignatia
11. Hatred, jealousy, envy, suspicion: Holly (Bach Flower)
12. Resentment, Bitterness: Willow (Bach Flower)
13. Intolerance, fault finding: Beech (Bach Flower)
14. Repeats same mistake: Chestnut Bud (Bach Flower)

Just giving the above-listed remedies to a child may not produce the expected result. Each child is a unique individual, a fact only a wise physician can perceive and prescribe the most suitable remedy. A child may need a constitutional remedy like Tuberculinum or Psorinum. For example a disobedient and violent child may need some doses of Tuberculinum 200/1m. Another child, who does not care for anyone, does whatever he likes to do, says whatever pleases him, is negligent of his cleanliness may need occasional doses of Sulphuricum 200/1m. A scrofulous, nervous, restless and easily startled child may need Psorinum 200/1m whereas a fat and stubborn cousin may need Calcarea Carbonica 200/ 1m. Therefore, I consider it advisable to consult an experienced homeopath before using these medicines for a long time. Not every homeopath prescribes Bach Flower remedies, but I have found them to be pleasantly effective and totally safe to use in psychological conditions. I believe that caring parents, a sensitive psychologist and a wise homeopath together can successfully help a child to have a happy childhood.
