It turns out that the diet of many children needs to be supplemented … with sedatives! Yes Yes. This is exactly what one of my friends thinks (one can say, a distant-ultimate relative). First things first.
During my next visit to Tatyana (my name was changed), I heard a strange remark from her: Misha finally calmed down. All day indulged! It was necessary to give him Valerian even earlier.
I was surprised and discouraged, although my inner voice used sharper (and even abusive) words. It turned out that Tatyana considers Misha (a five-year-old son) hyperactive. Later it turned out that Tatiana’s ideas about the hyperactivity of babies are rather vague. The word apparently liked it.
Naughty Misha – hyperactive Misha. The diagnosis is made, not appealable. The pills go further.
Did Tatiana read special literature? Was the concept of hyperactivity interested in? Not at all! It turned out that some of her friends were giving her daughter sedatives – a psychologist recommended. It doesn’t matter that the girl has a health problem. Experience because you need to learn without regard to the situation!
Tatyana did not speak about the methods of diagnosis. Apparently, my view alerted her, so the excuses sounded:
– What are you looking at me like that ?! Think easy to calm the baby? Yes, he SUCH tantrums on the way to the garden suits. Sometimes almost an hour around the building can walk and lament. And in the morning we will issue valerian women – a golden child
Relatives (I am one of them) took Misha to kindergarten more than once. Long negotiations were not conducted, the child behaved calmly, and the endless ones want to go home did not disturb the nervous system. Hearing such arguments, Tatiana retorted:
– All of you are well – you know how to negotiate with Misha!
I wondered why Tatiana herself did not try to negotiate with her son. In response, nothing intelligible was said.
Tatiana understood that she had no suitable arguments, and therefore the standard phrase followed:
– You’ll start your own – then you will understand everything yourself!
How it all ended
A few days later I managed to convince my relative that Misha was normal. I casually spoke about the good behavior of the child, praised him for his ability to listen. Unexpectedly, Tatiana asked:
– You think Misha can not be called hyperactive?
I supported my answer with a whole bunch of examples and praises addressed to the child. I hope the tactic worked, although there are no guarantees. Recently it turned out that Tatyana gives antibiotics to a cold child, following the advice of some acquaintances. But that’s another story.
It is a pity that the body of the baby in vain receives a dose of drugs. Just because Misha’s mother did not bother to analyze the information or clarify the diagnosis with a good doctor.
Perhaps I underestimated the importance of soothing pills in raising babies? Share, please, opinion.
