Children are unique. Each has his or her own personality traits and quirks, each has different needs, and each develops at varying speeds and capacities. As parents, you know that your child is a special person who cannot be treated in the same way as every other child on the block. Some children are calm, while others are more active. Some learn quickly and easily, while others require more focus and redirection.
If you have noticed that your child has struggles with inattentiveness and being overactive, you may be looking for some ways to help with his or her needs. Perhaps you have even taken your child to your medical provider who has suggested that you consider Attention Deficit or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD) as a possible reason for your child’s actions.
Whatever the case, your child may be dealing with a number of issues that have raised your concern. For example, he or she may have mood swings and temper tantrums, seem abnormally weak or tired, or even revert to a tendency to wet the bed. Typically, your child’s symptoms can be qualified into three main categories:
Inattentive – Have you noticed your child has difficulty staying focused on a single task? Has he or she been having trouble remembering things, or does he or she makes seemingly careless mistakes by missing details? Your child may have difficulty following directions, comprehending information verbally or in writing, or expressing his or her ideas. These are some of the clues that your child may be experiencing inattention.
Hyperactive and impulsive – Do you often notice that your child is fidgety, restless, or running around at inappropriate times? Children who are hyperactive and impulsive often interrupt others and have trouble taking turns in everyday activities.
Combined – Does your child seem to fall into both categories: inattentive and hyperactive? He or she may be exhibiting signs of being in this third group of symptoms.
As a parent, you are most concerned about your child and his or her well-being. Of course you want to do what is best for your child. Perhaps your healthcare provider has suggested a prescription such as Ritalin to help ameliorate some of your child’s symptoms. While Ritalin has been shown to help normalize behavior for many children, the long-lasting effects of this medication are relatively unknown, and you may not feel comfortable with this route of treatment.
Do not worry; you are not alone as a parent, and your child’s symptoms can improve through the use of well-chosen homeopathic remedies.
The remedy to help your child feel and function better will be recommended by your Homeopath after a detailed consultation with you and your child. And you do not have to worry about any unwelcome or dangerous side effects. The remedies are safe, gentle, and effective.
