Did you know that for centuries, there was no such field as child psychology? Children were treated on the same scale as adults when it came to mental health issues! Thankfully, things turned around with child psychology now a field of study which is gaining popularity among parents. This is quite the scene in Kolkata, where there was a spate of incidents involving school children of reputed city schools. There are also disturbing reports of children buying drugs from peddlers in front of A-list Kolkata schools. 

All of these incidents have prompted school authorities and parents alike to look at children as living entities with minds of their own. For a long time now, parents have burdened children with their expectations and worries. When these hapless children could not measure up to their demands, the parents put the blame squarely on their young shoulders. Ask any psychologist in Kolkata and you would know that mental health worries of school children are often linked and tied with their parents. 

School children are being counselled across schools, with the state government joining the trend, albeit late. Child psychologists can help parents deal with difficult children. Urban schools have children with a lot of expectations from them, with mounting competition and contracting opportunities. You would find such children living a quiet life, with sad, disheartened faces. Unless they open up their bottled feelings and emotions, you cannot get a peek into their minds. A trained psychologist can do that. 

Parents of school children are finally awake to the benefits of child psychology. They are not stigma-wary anymore of taking their child to a psychologist or psychiatrist in Kolkata. Even state-run hospitals and clinics are seeing parents with teenagers lined up for psychological counselling. With more parents willing to offer children the help they need for mental issues, child psychology will reach out to many more who are yet to get help. 

MonerAlo.com, the top psychology clinic in Kolkata, has a reputed and experienced team of child psychologists to help your child find their feet, and mojo, back again. Children with healthy minds are the future.

It was only in the late 1980s that the topic of depression among toddlers first came into the picture. Earlier, just as most people today, depression among toddlers was unheard of, primarily because no one bothered to evaluate. With modern psychologists expanding the ambit of their study, and interest, toddlers are now diagnosed with depression and even bipolar disorders. So, if your toddler looks depressed, like an adult would look when they are feeling down, there are chances that your toddler is actually suffering from depression. 

There are different types of depression that can happen to very young children:

  • Seasonal Affective Disorder: This is linked to daylight. During winter, when daylight goes away quicker, children can get depressed. 
  • Dysthymia: In this condition, depression is not quite strong but the problem can be quite persistent. Dysthymia can lead to a full-blown depression if not treated at the right time. 
  • Adjustment Disorder: This kind of depression sets in when a child loses a particularly favourite family member or friend. It can also happen if the child is uprooted from a particular location when the family moves homes. 
  • Bipolar Disorder: As in adults, bipolar disorders make children swing from one end of the emotional spectrum to the other. Sometimes the child is happy while at other times, they are sad. This kind of depression is rare, though. 

The question now arises, how do you get help for your depressed child? The first job is to take the child to a professionally trained psychologist. Only such a professional can say for sure if your child is depressed or there is some other issue. Through individual sessions, a psychologist can take a peep into the child’s mind. Sometimes, studying the behavior of a child, or asking them to answer questionnaires, can open up the mind to the psychologist. Treatment usually is free of medication because the child is too young. 

Therapy sessions, individual and group, are the way to take your child on the path of recovery. Because there cannot be any particular cause for depression among toddlers, addressing individual cases is the only way forward.

Signs of child abuse may not be obvious in most of the cases. This is because children may feel afraid or ashamed to tell anyone about it. They might feel that no one would believe them or they might be scared of the abuser. Many times, the child even doesn’t realise that he/she’s being abused. World Health Organisation reveals that 20% of women and about 5 to 10% of men accepted being sexually abused as children. While 25-50% of people accepted of being physically abused as children.

How can you tell whether a child is been abused? Check for these warning signs:

1. Change in Behaviour

Has the child turned hostile lately? Is he or she showing aggression or hyperactivity? Does the child lack social skills and develops poor bonding with parents? If yes, then it can be a sign of child abuse.

2. Depression and Loss of Interest

Does the child withdraw from activities that once gave him/her pleasure? Does he/she refuse to meet friends? Have they begun to lose confidence in whatever they do and suffer from anxiety?

3. Reluctance

Abused children often avoid places where they are likely to confront their abuser. Did you notice similar reluctance in any child around you? Does he/she refuse to go to school, board the school bus, return home or visit a particular relative’s place? Is he/she reluctant in sharing information?

4. Trouble Sleeping

Does the child face difficulty in sleeping? Does he/she constantly wet or soil the bed? Do they have nightmares and other sleep problems that are beyond explanation? These can be signs of possible child abuse.

5. Self-Injury and Substance abuse

Bruises and burns are early signs of child abuse. Children might harm themselves (by cutting or burning) to relieve the emotional pain. They might even begin drinking at a very young age. If you have noticed unexplained wounds in your child’s body then don’t ignore it.

Child abuse can leave permanent scars on a child’s mind and if neglected, this can result in impaired mental or physical health. Children can forget the pain afflicted due to abuse and live a normal and healthy life, which is why it’s important to immediately consult a psychologist.
