I am not a doctor and not a psychologist, but I think that the mother’s heart will tell you the right way if trouble happens to the child. I do not want to say trouble – I do not like this word terribly.
Recently, I wrote that my sister and daughter came to visit me. This niece once again convinced me that the child’s psyche is very vulnerable, and in the most difficult situations the child needs a mother. It all started with mosquitoes.
On the first evening of the vacation, the sister and daughter did not expect such an invasion of these gnawing and harmful insects. They bit the girl very much. And so much so that in the morning on the face there was no living place.
At night, she was crying hard, spinning and spinning. I felt very uncomfortable in the new environment. And my sister did not use the repellent, which was a very serious mistake at the resort.
The next day was normally. Sea, sun and water. But the evening was already preparing their surprises. The girl began to cry as soon as night came down. The slightest squeak of a mosquito led her to tears.
Her mom and I tried to calm her down and put her to bed. And at night the worst began. Not everyone slept, including, probably, the neighbors. The girl screamed and crawled on the bed so much that she had to reassure in addition her mother, my sister. What is most nightmarish that the next 2 nights were the same.
I did not know what to do. After another sleepless night, I called my pediatrician and asked for advice. It was a pity the niece, she began a real nervous breakdown. There were bruises under the eyes, panic fear at the first buzz of a mosquito.
The pediatrician advised the girl to give a sedative. But this is already clear. A sedative, of course, will help, but the memory will not erase.
Then my sister’s mother’s heart suggested, in my opinion, a very correct way out.
She came up with a fairy tale for her daughter, in which a kind magician in the form of a raptor sucked in all the mosquitoes. She put her to sleep beside herself and stayed on duty near the head of her daughter almost all night. The result was not long in coming. The girl spent a relatively good night. And the next she was already sound asleep. And no pills and potions are needed, if next loving mother’s heart.
This case showed that for a child there is nothing more important than a mother, who will always be there at the right moment. No one feels their child like mom. I am now talking about real mothers, and not about those who are indifferent to the fate of their children.
A true mother will never give up a child in a difficult moment and will find words that will bring the child out of stress. Of course, stress is also different, there are those that require medical intervention. But most of the children’s stress can be removed immediately, without resorting to the help of psychologists. It would be near the real mother’s heart.
