Why do some parents want their children to act like an adult when they hit their 30's even if they have a disability like cerebral palsy?

Confusing question: An adult is an adult.The majority cerebral palsy patients have no cognitive impairment that would prevent acquiring adult self monitoring & awareness skills. Those that are mentally impaired need help with these issues but can learn them over time. Why wouldn't a parent want his kid to develop acceptable behavior pattern. ...Read more

Could ptsd influence one to do psychotic acts such as murder?

Could ptsd influence one to do psychotic acts such as murder?

A serious subject: A number of combat ptsd patients in my care have engaged in violent behavior in the midst of a flashback. This is why it is important to aggressively address this type of dissassociation. However, we have a mantra that ptsd is not an excuse for violence. A bit paradoxical. ...Read more

Head injury: So if it was just a little mark and it is gone, the baby is probably ok. I would suggest having it checked out, though, because he's so small. Definitely see a doctor if he starts vomiting, sleeping more, or behaving differently. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. Sounds like a lot of tension between parents. Normally, a physician will not prescribe Ritalin (methylphenidate) for the sole purpose of making a child more docile. There has to be actual medical indication. There are a number of differrent medications which can be used to treat a child. I would anticipate that your son likely has attention deficit disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder if he is being treated with ritalin (methylphenidate). I suggest that you share your observations with your wife. Recommend it be done in a neutral and non- accusatory manner. You can share your concerns about possible side effects with her. It will be received better if your wife perceives you as bringing it up due to concern about your son, rather than bringing it up in the context of not parenting appropriately. Good luck. ...Read more
