If a doctor makes a diagnosis of the child "dystonia", that along with regular monitoring and treatment will recommend a special gentle treatment. What is it and why is it important to follow it?
Often, dystonia is called "disease - a ghost" for the fact that it can exist completely unnoticed
. According to statistics, from 20 to 45% of preschool children have this diagnosis
. But it is only those children who have some symptoms were very visible and forced parents to see a doctor, or those in whom the disease was identified by chance
. In many cases, the symptoms do not cause much concern, and if they deliver, then regarded as a manifestation of the nature or the impact of the environment
. The child responds to changes in temperature, naughty and bad sleeping in the rain
. Or the baby's chin trembles, and he struggled to calm down
. Or he blushes and sweats during active play
. Or frequent colds, when it begins to go into the garden
. These and other symptoms (regurgitation in infancy, erratic sleep, susceptibility to allergies, timidity, low adaptive capacity) find an explanation is quite rational: "I am also a child did not sleep well, it is from me to pass," "Yes, we all family because the weather reacts "
Active treatment to the doctor and treatment often start at the age of 6 - 7 years, when it becomes apparent increased fatigue, inability to maintain attention for a long time, intolerance to training loads. But treatment is not always successful. The second "nickname" IRR - "stepdaughter of medicine." A little apart, she lives alone. It may occur at an early age, and then stop worrying, and may remain for a lifetime. It may succumb to short-term treatment, and may require all new methods. And all because of the important role played by psychological factors. The living conditions, the situation in the family, emotional - all this too "drugs" when it comes to violations of the autonomic nervous system activity.
Reduce the load
Reduce the load
. This is perhaps the most important point in the recommendations of psychologists, because the most severe symptoms of the IRR are the children whose lives from early childhood painted by the minute
. "What are the lessons of a foreign language to young children? Surely they are in the form of the game
. So, it's not the load, and entertainment ", the parents argue, and no doubt lead the child to lessons
. But for three five-year olds are even some gaming sessions - it is work
. Especially if they are after the garden, which also has a teaching hours and have their (they also seem to us to game) load
. Even a change of one team to another during the day can be difficult for a baby
. Therefore, do not you want to develop the child as soon as possible, to give him as much knowledge, prepare for school, yet get yourself together
. Proposals in this area is now the most enticing, but the parents, choosing schools, groups and sections should clearly know the answers to the questions "What's in it for my child? "" What is my child take? "
Keep in mind that the possibility of the children are different, and if you and your daughter successfully engaged in three types of sport and go to school early learning, it does not mean that your child will be able to do the same. Anyway, without effort and with the same joy. Activities for children with VSD helpful. But it is better if it is in the game, rather than the competitive mode. Situations competitions often highly experienced children, they can even reduce the interest to engage. Later, when the child grows up, he will be able to take it more relaxed and even find interest in the competition, but for young children is more appropriate simply exercise, recreational activities in nature, in the pool. It should also avoid traumatic, "aggressive" sports - boxing, wrestling, hockey. But swimming, skiing, running fit perfectly and even recommended for children with this diagnosis.
Limit load of any kind should be in early September - if the child goes to kindergarten or to school already
. This is the time of the child - for changing modes, increasing the responsibility of having to malfunction of the nervous system
. Morning sickness, headaches, recurrent fever, pallor, bags under the eyes - symptoms of so-called "crisis of September 1"
. Organize quality holiday child to the new school year in kindergarten or school was successful
. But quality - not to rich
. Entertainment, socializing with friends, going to cafes and a movie - such studies should also be dosed
. The younger the child, the more "modest" should be his partner
. His schedule have to be a line of "doing nothing"
. Doctors and psychologists of the old school, for all disorders of the nervous system recommended therapy Family walk
. You can use these tips now
. In the evening, before bedtime, parents and their children go for a walk
. 20 minutes - 30 they walk the streets without going anywhere
. Parents talk to each other and the child is between them, holding both hands (at the end of the walk is literally hangs on them)
. After that - to wash and sleep
. Well, you can read a couple of pages of a fairy tale
. TV and computer - no - no! Incidentally, such conditions and adults will help improve their mental health
Family - home therapy
And make sure that the family was quiet. To love one another adult and the child, that all was well and comfortable. No, such a recommendation to be very difficult. It is in fact impossible. If - present a harmonious relationship in the family is not present, it is unlikely they occur consciously, because "the doctor ordered." But family circumstances - an important factor in successful treatment. Moreover, safe
from a psychological point of view of the families, even the likelihood of the disease will be much lower
. In fact, besides heredity - constitutional factors, injuries and abnormalities in early childhood and before birth (lack of oxygen to the fetus during pregnancy) is the psycho-emotional and
. Adverse events that change the life of the family for the worst education in conditions of constant tension and conflicts - all this is also reflected in the work of the autonomic system
. And latent conflicts are no less dangerous - because children are very sensitive and are worried if the family that - that is not so
. For example, the situation in the family on the verge of divorce
. Parents worrying about the health of the child, decide to wait until - especially since the argument preceding the decision to leave, all have left their mark
. "Let's wait until together, the child will calm down, come back to normal"
. However, in such circumstances a child is unlikely to be better
. After all, kind, warm and sincere relations still does not appear, and that they will unconsciously be fixed
Or another situation
. The parents had split up, but Dad wants to participate in education
. He comes every week, takes the child to himself, and returns the next day
. It would seem that everything is perfect
. Often, however, such a relationship is an element of competition, the desire to win the argument, "who is the best parent," and it also leaves its mark
. Mother after the return of the child attempts, requiring per minute report about the spent time (to make it than to reproach her ex-husband), father to addiction finds, with whom my mother spends nights
. And sometimes grandmothers on both sides are connected
. So, sometimes a "peaceful resolution of the situation" is so stressful for the child, which in itself provokes a variety of disorders
. "Every Friday morning the temperature in Eureka
. And so for several months
. We doctors and psychologists go
. "It's a reaction to negative events, suspense," she told us after the test
. Of course, anxiety
. After all, on Fridays it takes Dad
. His new wife insisted establishes contact between their children and ours, and Yurik in the company's youngest
. I can not say that it hurt him, but he feels there is not very comfortable
. Returns the nausea, then a headache
. I would do it and did not give, but what they think? I decide that I'm just out of jealousy ... "
Of course, it is impossible to create an ideal environment. Yes, in principle, they should not be so - even a small stress strengthens the mental and physical health. However, to exclude particularly traumatic situation still stands. Keep in mind that children get used to any situation (parental divorce, living with his grandmother, transfer), if there is at least one person who provides a sense of confidence and love. Even part-time and are not financially happy family can be harmonious if the single parent adequately to the needs of the child, can give a sense of security and warmth surround.
What do you tell a child, when they came out of the doctor? What to say about his illness now? This is also important. So formed internal picture of the disease - that is how the person is their disease. And from it, in turn, largely depends on the success of the recovery.
"All my childhood I was sure that seriously ill
. I could not run fast, eat ice cream and to be in a draft
. It was impossible for a long time watching television, turn somersaults over the head, and even cry
. "Stop it, you are now going to get worse," said the grandmother, wiping my tears
. When I was playing in the street, my grandmother always warned the children not to throw me in the sand and not pushed "Olechka us sick, be careful with it"
. It is strange to me that all the children were playing "
. Such sverhzabotlivoe attitude can lead to mental disability
. A child in this situation may be a long time to learn that he is not like everyone else, that his life should be full of restrictions and to himself that everyone should be treated as carefully and tenderly
. In the future, this may complicate not only professional, but also personal life
. Threats grim warnings - also not the best behavior
. It scared inspire anxiety for its status
. Often, here begins a direct path to the neurosis
. Blame the disease, instill a sense of duty ("How much time you spend, the doctors constantly run") absolutely invalid reception
. Besides a sense of guilt at an early age and then often gives way to aggression and not appreciated
. Generally, the less you talk about the disease, the less discuss it with the child, the better
. This, of course, does not mean that he should not know about the problems in general
. However, discussing them, we should not focus on the limitations and the need to take medication, etc.
. Needless to say, "How terrible," "Wow, what happened" and "What do we do now? "
The attitude to the disease should be calm and rational. Yes, it happens. All people when - what else - some are sick and need to go to the doctor, but that does not mean that they do lack something - something in life. There are many activities that are available, and as interesting as those that have not yet recommended. This thought will help more optimistic look at their state now and do a good job, if necessary, then, in adulthood.
