Predicting developmental outcomes at school entry using a multiple-risk model: four American communities. The Conduct Problems Prevention Research Group. (1/1571)

The contributions of different risk factors in predicting children's psychological and academic outcomes at the end of 1st grade were examined. Using a regression model, levels of ecobehavioral risk were assessed in the following order: specific demographics, broad demographics, family psychosocial status, mother's depressive symptoms, and neighborhood quality. Participants were 337 families from 4 American communities. Predictor variables were assessed in kindergarten, and teacher, parent, and child outcomes (behavioral and academic) were assessed at the end of 1st grade. Results indicated that (a) each level of analysis contributed to prediction of most outcomes, (b) 18%-29% of the variance was predicted in outcomes, (c) a common set of predictors predicted numerous outcomes, (d) ethnicity showed little unique prediction, and (e) the quality of the neighborhood showed small but unique prediction to externalizing problems.  (+info)

Family factors affecting child development. (2/1571)

In a large, geographically defined population of children a number of family factors in addition to social class, determined by the father's occupation, were recorded by health visitors and school nurses with routine responsibility for these children. The quality of the children in normal schools was assessed in terms of nonverbal IQ and height at the ages of 5 and 10 years, and of behavior as reported by the teacher at the age of 10 years. By analysis of variance the sum of the independent effects of the other family factors greatly outweighed that of occupational social class, except in the case of the IQ at 10 years. The most important of the other family factors was the quality of the mother's care of her child during the first 3 years of life.  (+info)

Like mother, like daughter: familial patterns of overweight are mediated by mothers' dietary disinhibition. (3/1571)

BACKGROUND: Obese parents are more likely to have obese children. Parents provide both the genes and eating environment for their children and familial patterns of adiposity are the result of gene-environment interactions. Environmental factors are implicated in the rapid increases in prevalence of childhood overweight that have occurred in the past 2 decades. Examination of aspects of the family environment may provide insight into increases in childhood overweight over time. OBJECTIVE: We examined parental characteristics associated with overweight and eating behaviors in preschool children. DESIGN: Seventy-five preschool children and their parents were recruited from local daycare centers. Information was obtained on parents' body mass indexes (BMIs), dietary restraint, and dietary disinhibition. A behavioral index of disinhibited eating in children was used to measure children's eating when given free access to palatable snack foods in the absence of hunger. Children's weight-for-height values were also calculated. RESULTS: Maternal dietary disinhibition (R2 = 0.35, P < 0.01) and maternal BMI (R2 = 0.19, P < 0.05) positively predicted daughters' overweight. Maternal disinhibition (R2 = 0.35, P < 0.05) mediated the relation between mothers' BMI and daughters' overweight when both maternal disinhibition and maternal BMI were used to predict daughters' overweight. Furthermore, when both mothers' disinhibition and daughters' free access intakes were used to predict daughters' overweight, mothers' disinhibition (P < 0.05) showed independent prediction. CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that familial influences on child overweight differ according to parent and child sex. Also, these results suggest that mothers' dietary disinhibition mediates familial similarities in degree of overweight for mothers and daughters.  (+info)

Intranasal midazolam for premedication of children undergoing day-case anaesthesia: comparison of two delivery systems with assessment of intra-observer variability. (4/1571)

Midazolam is often used for paediatric premedication. We have compared two methods of administering midazolam intranasally in 44 surgical day-case children allocated randomly to receive midazolam 0.2 mg kg-1 as drops or midazolam 0.1 mg kg-1 from an intranasal spray device. Behaviour was recorded on a four-point scale by the parent, nurse and anaesthetist. Coefficients were obtained representing the change in behaviour score. There was no significant difference in method of administration (coefficient 0.13, P = 0.39). Children were significantly more distressed at the time of premedication and at the time of venous cannulation (coefficients 1.31 and 0.70) than at baseline. There was no significant difference in the assessments between observers. Midazolam by either method was equally effective but acceptability of the premedication was poor in both groups. Intranasal midazolam cannot be recommended as a method for routine premedication of young children.  (+info)

Neuropsychological sequelae of haemolytic uraemic syndrome. Investigators of the HUS Cognitive Study. (5/1571)

BACKGROUND: Severe haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS) in childhood can cause stroke, hemiplegia, cortical blindness, and psychomotor retardation. These outcomes are evident at the time of discharge immediately after the acute illness. Less is known about the neuropsychological outcomes of less severely affected children who recover from acute HUS. AIMS: This multicentre case control study investigated the hypothesis that children who survive an acute episode of HUS without recognizable neurological injuries have greater impairment of cognitive, academic, and behavioural functions than controls. DESIGN: Children with HUS were eligible if they had no evidence of severe neurological dysfunction when discharged from one of six Canadian hospitals. Controls had been admitted to hospital for a non-HUS illness and were matched by age, sex, first language, and socioeconomic status. All subjects underwent evaluation of behaviour, academic achievement, cognitive function, and verbal abilities using standardised tests administered by a psychometrist blinded to the case or control status. RESULTS: Ninety-one case control pairs were enrolled. No important differences between patients with HUS and paired controls were evident on tests of IQ, behaviour, verbal abilities, or academic achievement. There was no increased risk of attention deficit disorder among patients with HUS. There was no correlation between the severity of acute renal failure and neuropsychological measures, although scores on some verbal ability tests were lower in those with the highest serum creatinine concentrations during illness. CONCLUSIONS: Children discharged from hospital without apparent neurological injury after an episode of acute HUS do not have an increased risk of subclinical problems with learning, behaviour, or attention.  (+info)

A randomised controlled trial of specialist health visitor intervention for failure to thrive. (6/1571)

AIMS: To determine whether home intervention by a specialist health visitor affects the outcome of children with failure to thrive. METHODS: Children referred for failure to thrive were randomised to receive conventional care, or conventional care and additional specialist home visiting for 12 months. Outcomes measured were growth, diet, use of health care resources, and Bayley, HAD (hospital anxiety and depression), and behavioural scales. RESULTS: Eighty three children, aged 4-30 months, were enrolled, 42 received specialist health visitor intervention. Children in both groups showed good weight gain (mean (SD) increase in weight SD score for the specialist health visitor intervention group 0.59 (0.63) v 0.42 (0.62) for the control group). Children < 12 months in the intervention group showed a higher mean (SD) increase in weight SD score than the control group (0.82 (0.86) v 0.42 (0.79)). Both groups improved in developmental score and energy intake. No significant differences were found for the primary outcome measures, but controls had significantly more dietary referrals, social service involvement, and hospital admissions, and were less compliant with appointments. CONCLUSIONS: The study failed to show that specialist health visitor intervention conferred additional benefits for the child. However, the specialist health visitor did provide a more coordinated approach, with significant savings in terms of health service use. Problems inherent to health service research are discussed.  (+info)

Comparison of oral chloral hydrate with intramuscular ketamine, meperidine, and promethazine for pediatric sedation--preliminary report. (7/1571)

Fifteen consecutive pediatric patients ranging from 3 to 5 years old were selected to receive one of three sedative/hypnotic techniques. Group 1 received oral chloral hydrate 50 mg/kg, and groups 2 and 3 received intramuscular ketamine 2 mg/kg and 3 mg/kg, respectively. In addition to ketamine, patients in groups 2 and 3 received transmucosal intramuscular injections of meperidine and promethazine into the masseter muscle. Sedation for the satisfactory completion of restorative dentistry was obtained for over 40 min on average in the chloral hydrate group, but completion of dental surgery longer than 40 min was achieved in groups 2 and 3 only by intravenous supplements of ketamine.  (+info)

Methylmercury neurotoxicity in Amazonian children downstream from gold mining. (8/1571)

In widespread informal gold mining in the Amazon Basin, mercury is used to capture the gold particles as amalgam. Releases of mercury to the environment have resulted in the contamination of freshwater fish with methylmercury. In four comparable Amazonian communities, we examined 351 of 420 eligible children between 7 and 12 years of age. In three Tapajos villages with the highest exposures, more than 80% of 246 children had hair-mercury concentrations above 10 microg/g, a limit above which adverse effects on brain development are likely to occur. Neuropsychological tests of motor function, attention, and visuospatial performance showed decrements associated with the hair-mercury concentrations. Especially on the Santa Ana form board and the Stanford-Binet copying tests, similar associations were also apparent in the 105 children from the village with the lowest exposures, where all but two children had hair-mercury concentrations below 10 microg/g. Although average exposure levels may not have changed during recent years, prenatal exposure levels are unknown, and exact dose relationships cannot be generated from this cross-sectional study. However, the current mercury pollution seems sufficiently severe to cause adverse effects on brain development.  (+info)

Another possibility is to shut your mouth and act. One way to do this is to kindly and firmly pick up the child or take the child by the hand and leave the public place. If you take the childs hand, and she pulls in the other direction, do not resist. While still keeping your mouth shut, let yourself be pulled in her direction until she stops pulling. Then start walking (still holding her hand, kindly and firmly) away from the public place. Keep repeating this every time your child resists. It looks like a seesaw, with you leaning in the childs direction until she stops resisting, then pulling in your direction until she resists, then back in her direction until she stops resisting. When you dont engage in the power struggle, your child will usually stop resisting after three to five times of this seesaw ...

This prospective population-based study examined associations between childrens behaviour problems and maternal employment. Information on childrens behaviour problems at 3 years from 22,115 mothers employed before pregnancy and participating in the Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study were linked to national register data on employment and relevant social background factors, mothers self-reported susceptibility to anxiety/depression and mother-reports of day-care attendance and fathers income. Mothers reporting their child to have severe (,2 SD) internalizing or severe combined behaviour problems (5 %) had excess risk of leaving paid employment irrespective of other important characteristics generally associated with maternal employment (RR 1.24-1.31). The attributable risk percent ranged from 30.3 % (internalizing problems) to 32.4 % (combined problems). Externalizing behaviour problems were not uniquely associated with mothers leaving employment ...

It has been described that eating behavior, measured through CEBQ in children, is a relatively stable trait over time, showing a good reproducibility and high internal consistency [28]. A clear and graded association between CEBQ scores and BMI has been reported previously [10, 11, 27]. The present study confirms the existence of such association in Chilean children, especially in relation to the positive associations between obesity and "food-approach" ("pro-intake") subscales such as EF, FR and EOE. These results are similar to previous studies showing that children with increased BMI are highly responsive to environmental food cues. The inverse associations between body weight and scores of "food-avoidant" ("anti-intake") subscales such as SE and SR are similar to other studies. The CEBQ subscales DD, EUE and FF showed no association with childhood obesity [11, 27].. The original 8-factor structure was not perfectly replicated in our study since an important degree of overlapping has been ...

Mental health has become a prominent issue in society. Yet, much remains unknown about the etiology of psychiatric disorders. The aim of the present thesis was to investigate the association between biological, psychological and social factors of risk and resilience and behavioral problems in a birth cohort of Swedish children. 1723 mothers and their children were followed from birth to the age of 12 as part of the South East Sweden Birth Cohort Study (the SESBiC study). Information was gathered through register data, standardized questionnaires and DNA samples.. In study I, stability of maternal symptoms of depression and the impact on child behavior at age 12 were investigated. The prevalence of depressive symptoms was found to be 12.0 % postpartum. Symptoms of postpartum depression significantly increased the risk for subsequent depressive symptoms 12 years later in women. Children whose mothers reported concurrent symptoms of depression and anxiety had an increased risk for both ...
Results For all outcomes except grip strength there was a dose-response relationship between healthy behaviour score and outcomes. For example, in men with four healthy behaviours and no baseline ADL problems, at 18-year follow-up 78.4% had no ADL problems, 6.6% had ADL problems, and 15.0% had died. In men with no healthy behaviours and no ADL problems at baseline, at follow-up 35.1% had no ADL problems, 8.8% had ADL problems, and 56.1% had died. Results in women were comparable but ADL differences were more marked. Number of healthy behaviours was related to follow-up cognitive function, mental health, walk speed, and lung function but not grip strength. Results were robust to adjustment for socioeconomic status (SES: measures of health, income, and level of education) and in analyses stratified by SES similar differences were found in relation to healthy behaviours within strata.. ...
Questioning is one of the most important means to obtain information from children for both empirical and practical purposes. This chapter reviews research on the issue of whether children, particularly young preschoolers, have yes biases when they respond to yes-no questions in which the task is simply to choose yes or no as an answer. Drawing from work carried out in America, Canada, Hungary, Japan, and elsewhere, it describes developmental changes in terms of childrens response biases to yes-no questions and shows that such biases are the most pronounced when children are unfamiliar with either the subject matter in question or the words used in the question. Several reasons are advanced to account for a yes bias. One relates to perceived social factors. That is, children might feel social pressures that they have to provide an answer (i.e., yes response) when questioned by adults. Another is that young preschoolers may be unable to appropriately answer questions due to cognitive factors ...
In this study of a primary school-aged cohort of children with type 1 diabetes, we found that higher MBG values, increased percentage of time in the high glycemic range, and decreased percentage of time in the normal glycemic range were all associated with higher externalizing behavior scores. Our findings are noteworthy in that we have demonstrated consistency in the relationship between the three glycemic measures and externalizing behavior, with higher MBG and percentage of time in high glycemic ranges being associated with more behavioral problems and higher percentage of time in the normal glycemic range being associated with fewer problems. Overall, MBG and percentage of time in high and normal glycemic ranges explained between 7 and 9% of the variance in externalizing behaviors. Multiple independent and interacting factors are likely to influence behavior; hence, identifying a single factor that explains this amount of the variance in behavioral status is clinically meaningful ...

The main pathological feature of Parkinsons disease (PD) is the loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra. In this study, we investigated the role of cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2R) agonist AM1241 on 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-induced neurotoxicity in a mouse model of PD. Upon treatment with AM1241, the decreased CB2R level in the PD mouse brain was reversed and the behavior score markedly elevated, accompanied with a dose-dependent increase of dopamine and serotonin. In addition, western blot assay and immunostaining results suggested that AM1241 significantly activated PI3K/Akt/MEK phosphorylation and increased the expression of Parkin and PINK1, both in the substantia nigra and hippocampus ...
Over 200 million children from low- and middle-income (LAMI) countries show compromised neural, cognitive, and social-emotional functioning due to exposure to preventable developmental risks. Understanding how exposure to developmental risks adversely influences child functioning is complex. The impact of developmental risks varies, depending upon many factors, including the extent and type of protective influences children encounter. Because risk factors often cluster, children living in poverty have particularly high exposure to cumulative bioecological and psychosocial developmental risks. This has clear evidence-based implications for intervention programs to promote the development of such children, including starting interventions early in life; designing integrated bioecological and psychosocial interventions; targeting specific risks that increase the likelihood of exposure to additional risks (maternal depression); promoting exposure to specific protective influences that increase the
The 4 parental relationship variables in the measurement are: quarrelling with mother, quarrelling with father, talking to mother about things that matter and talking to father about things that matter. Children who quarrelled with their mother or father more than once a week in 2011 to 2012 reported average total difficulties scores of 13.3 and 13.1 respectively. This compares with average scores of 9.5 and 9.8 for those children who reported quarrelling with their mother or their father less than once a week. Figure 2 illustrates the proportions of children with high or very high total difficulties scores according to how frequently they quarrelled with or talked to each of their parents. Children who quarrelled more than once a week with their mother were around 3 times more likely to report a high or very high score (24%) than those who quarrelled less than once a week (8%). Similarly, children who quarrelled with their father more than once a week were more than twice as likely to report a ...
1. In a calm, respectful voice, tell your child, If I have ever spoken to you that way, I apologize. I dont want to hurt you or be hurt by you. Can we start over?. 2. You are obviously very upset right now. I know it upsets me when you talk that way. Lets both take some time out to calm down. We can talk later when we feel better.. 3. Another possibility is to say what you will do. When you talk disrespectfully to me, I will leave the room. I love you and want to listen to you when you are ready to talk respectfully. I love myself enough to walk away from verbal abuse. Calmly leave the room without saying a word. If your child follows, go for a walk or get into the shower. After a cooling-off period, ask, Are you ready to talk with me now? If you are not too upset, try hugging your child. Sometimes children are not ready to accept a hug at this time. Other times a hug changes the atmosphere for both of you to one of love and respect.. top. ...

The effects of high-quality child care for toddlers can last well into childrens teenage years. Researchers from the National Institutes of Health in the U.S. studied 1,364 children who were followed from the age of 1 month to 15 years as part of the NICHD Study of Early Child Care and Youth Development (SECCYD), the largest, longest running and most comprehensive study of child care in the United States. The researchers reported the type, quantity and quality of child care the children received during their first 4 1/2 years with high quality child care being characterised by the caregivers warmth, support and cognitive stimulation of the children they were looking after. Even at the age of 15 the children who had been in higher-quality child care as a toddler scored slightly higher on measures of academic and cognitive achievement and were slightly less likely to behave badly. However, the teenagers who had spent the most hours in child care in their first 4 1/2 years were slightly more ...

Beautiful children, great experience! However, I do think that when they get older their diet may be turned into more inclusive one for social reasons. I do believe that it is enough for a healthy children to eat healthy mostly at home. Not everyone would welcome a child with own birthday cake for a BD party, probably most mothers may find it disruptive and even rude, and limiting childrens social circle only to the families with paleo life-stile will not prepare them well to live among wide range of people. Childhood is an extremely important time of life, but it is much shorter than adult years. We must do all what we can to rise a healthy child, but I think that getting them ready to find reasonable compromises with others is as important as being healthy right now ...
HELPING KIDS EXPRESS THEIR FEELINGS - For toddler or preschool age children, it is important for parents to encourage expression of feeling and listen to what they say.

Every child deserves to be safe and healthy. Another way to stay healthy is to get a Child & Teen Checkup ...

Description: The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of child-centered play therapy and curriculum-based small-group guidance on the behaviors of aggressive children in an elementary school as determined by (a) the reduction of aggressive behaviors, (b) the decrease in internalizing problems, and (c) the decrease in externalizing problems of aggressive children. Two types of behavioral instruments, the Behavioral Assessment System for Children-Teacher Rating Scale/Parent Rating Scale and the Child Behavior Checklist-Caregiver/Teacher Report Form, were used to provide multiple measures of the same construct in this matched pretest-posttest comparison group experimental designed study. Qualitative data was also collected. The population studied was comprised of 37 volunteer children identified as aggressive in kindergarten through fourth grade, ages 5-12, who qualified for counseling services at a Title I public elementary school in North Texas . Children who were referred by ...
We demonstrated that an intervention to modify the viewing habits of preschool-aged children can significantly enhance their overall social and emotional competence and that low-income boys may derive the greatest benefit. By focusing on content rather than quantity, this study is the first to our knowledge to employ a harm reduction approach to mediating the untoward effects of television viewing on child behavior. Importantly, we did not see an increase in total viewing time in the intervention group compared with the control group. Both groups increased their viewing time, which likely reflects the fact that children watch more television as they age.. Although they varied by group and outcome, the overall effect sizes we achieved range from 0.09 to 0.19, which using Cohens scale could be interpreted as small. However, they are consistent with what has been achieved in the context of other interventional trials designed to improve childrens behavior.40 Furthermore, the effects in the ...

1. Take the child by the hand and say, It is not okay to hit people. Im sorry you are feeling hurt and upset. You can talk about it or you can hit this pillow, but people arent for hitting.. 2. Help the child deal with the anger.. 3. Ask, Would it help you to go to your time-out spot now? Time out is not helpful unless the child has helped create a positive time-out spot in advance (see Planning Ahead to Prevent Future Problems, item 3). Also, time-out is not helpful if the child does not see the benefit and chooses it. If you make your child go to time-out, your child is likely to see it as punishment and may rebel.. 4. After the child has calmed down, ask what and how questions. What is upsetting you? How are you feeling?

Lectures are ineffective at any age because they make children feel ...
Hospitalization, surgery and anaesthesia are for some children associated with anxiety and could be a frightful experience which may result in later problematic behaviour. Pain is associated with the fears of hospitalization. The first aim was to investigate how pain in children is treated in Swedish hospitals as well as to assess the results of this treatment. Behaviour after hospitalization has been measured by the Post Hospital Behaviour Questionnaire (PHBQ). A second aim was to translate this instrument into Swedish and to validate it. The third aim was to analyze which factors (sociodemographic back¬ground; earlier experience; events at the hospital) that might be associated with changes in behaviour.. Methods: A questionnaire regarding acute pain, its treatment methods and results of treatments as well as contributing factors to inadequate results, was sent to all departments in hospitals that might treat children. One form was answered by phy¬sicians and another form by nurses.. In the ...
The plight of the children of alcoholics is now receiving increasing attention in both the scientific and general press. Most of this literature reports on studies that attempt to spell out specific problems in the childhood formative years that result from having an alcoholic parent. The bulk of those studies have been retrospective in nature. For the most part they deal with incidence rates (e.g. 50% of abused children or 50% of delinquent children come from alcoholic homes) and avoid direct cause and effect statements, except in two important areas. Causal relationships are being fairly well demonstrated in those studies dealing with fetal, newborn, and early childhood anomalies attributed to alcoholism in the mother (Jones, Smith, and Streissguth, 1974; Smith, 1977; Streissguth, 1976). Some authors (Goodwin, Schulsinger, Hermansen, Guze, & Winokur, 1975; Cantwell, 1972; Morrison & Stewart, 1973) have also reported a cause/effect relationship in some cases of childhood behavior and psychomotor
By Lane, Kathleen Lynne Stanton-Chapman, Tina; Jamison, Kristen Roorbach; Phillips, Andrea This study examined teachers and parents expectations of preschool age students behavior to determine how teacher and parent views of "importance" converge and diverge. Teachers (n = 35) and parents (n = 124) rated the extent to which social skills were critical for school success. Results suggest that while teachers and parents share similar expectations in the value paced on cooperation skills, they diverge in the importance placed on self-control and assertion skills. Implications for early intervention and strengthening home-school partnerships are discussed. An increasing body of research suggests that childrens social competence provides the necessary foundation for school readiness and academic achievement (Blair, 2002; Denham & Weissberg, 2004; Raver, 2004, Smith, 2003; Zins, Bloodworth, Weissberg, & Walberg, 2004). For example, Raver and Knitzer (2002) suggested that childrens social ...
Are you the parent of a young child who seems to be perpetually moving? Does your child have difficulty attending to tasks? Have you been told by family and friends that your childs behavior is not normal. Are you concerned that your child may have ADHD? This article will discuss 9 symptoms of ADHD, and also give information about a rating scale that can be used to help determine if your child has the disorder.. ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. This disorder has 3 core symptoms which are inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. There are an estimated 1 and ½ to 2 and ½ million children with ADHD in the United States, which is 3-5% of the student population. More boys than girls are diagnosed with ADHD which is approximately 4-9 times more.. According to the DSM IV ADHD can be defined by the behaviors exhibited. Children and adults have a combination of the following behaviors.. 1. Fidgeting with hands or feet or squirming in their seat.. 2. Difficulty remaining ...
1. Watch out for having overly high expectations for your children or making your love conditional on their behavior.. 2. Hold regular family meetings so children have a place to air their opinions and to be reassured that they belong and are significant. Brainstorm for solutions to problems so they learn that mistakes are opportunities to learn. Plan opportunities for them to contribute and experience their capabilities.. 3. Spend special time with each child alone, reminding him/her of his/her uniqueness and how much you appreciate his/her special qualities. Dont play favorites.. 4. Be sensitive to situations where your children are being put down by siblings, teachers, classmates, friends, and other family members. Talk to your children about their feelings and share yours. Let them know that some of the mean things people say and do are about their own insecurities and have nothing to do with them.. 5.

He or she will give your child a check-up, including vision and hearing, to be sure something else isnt causing the symptoms.

They talk with parents and kids about the things they have noticed. Your doctor might ask you to complete checklists about your childs behavior, and might ask you to give your childs teacher a checklist too.. After gathering this information, doctors diagnose ADHD if its clear that:. ...

Well, within 3 days I noticed a drastic difference in him. He was calmer, polite, and overall pleasant. One evening I announced that he had managed his behavior perfectly that day and he could choose any toy he wanted out of the stash, he had earned it. He didnt want a toy, he asked for a bike ride instead. Next day, again great behavior, I offered him a toy from the stash.

So what are some red flags to look for if your kids are your identity? When your kids become your identity, you tend to be a much more critical parent because you take on their failures as if your own, because you believe that your childrens lives are wrapped around you. We tend to over-react to our kids imperfections and failures. Its important to ask the Holy Spirit to help you separate your ACTIONS from your MOTIVES. Your ACTIONS are WHAT you do, your MOTIVES are WHY you do them. We are very complex beings and no one can sort out the motives of their heart without the help of the Holy Spirit. Why does it bother us so much when our kids fail or make poor choices? When you allow your childrens behavior to define you, you are in a very dangerous place. Honestly your childrens behaviors change with the wind and they are going to make mistakes. They are going to do foolish things. They are going to make wrong choices and none of that defines you. Its vital to keep in mind that your teenagers ...
Ive commented on this extensively before - Im a big fan of intrinsic motivation. Sometimes the parent has to figure out what the childs intrinsic motivation is, and then adapt the system to that reward. And yes, for some kids, their intrinsic motivation is getting stuff they want in a material sense, and that can work. What helps for me is identifying what the child WANTS as the reward - not what theyd ask for if you asked them (which is often stuff) but what theyre deep down jonesing for. That can then be used as a problem-solving trade, which, IMHO, is much more above-board than reward charts. Reward charts tend to present the idea that the childs behavior change earns them the reward. What is really going on is that the parent has a problem, the childs behavior change solves the problem, and the parent is willing to make some effort or spend some money to encourage or thank for the change that removes their problem. I prefer to keep it more I have a problem, and you have a ...

He or she can tell you what your childs treatment choices are, how successful theyre expected to be, and what the risks and side effects are. Your childs doctor may advise a specific treatment. Or he or she may offer more than one, and talk with you and your child to decide which one to use.. Your child may have just one treatment, or a combination of treatments. ...
Studies have shown screen time affects a childs brain, and may have lasting effects. Nevertheless, the average American child still spends 7 hours a day looking at a screen. Why is this the case?
It is true that ADHD appears to be inherited. Typical of many disorders that are inherited, not all the offspring inherit the gene. I will not get into a discourse in genes and how they work but suffice it to say that when one parent has a disorder that is inherited but the other parent does not, there is a chance that one child of that parent will inherit the disorder and none of the others. On the other hand, a second child may also get the gene for the disorder or the one child can remain the only one to inherit it. If both parents inherit the disorder then there is a greater chance that more children will inherit the disorder.. It gets very complicated and it makes no sense to get into all the complications here. I would suggest that you watch your childrens behavior for any symptoms that may appear to be ADHD in nature.. There is lots of help available for children with ADHD and the younger they receive help the better they do later on. Such help includes having them trained by a ...

A 20-year-old Gainesville man is scheduled for arraignment Jan. 8 after being indicted Dec. 19 on 17 counts of felony child sex abuse charges, according to court documents. The charges against Rusty Duane Alan Kempf stem from incidents involving four female victims from October 2011 to last July, all between the ages of 13 and 15, Wilbanks said. One victim came forward in July and Kempf was arrested and subsequently bonded out, Wilbanks said.
I recently spoke with an individual who has spent a good amount of time working with youth in African villages, where one teacher is often found teaching close to 100 children. During her tenure in these villages, my friend saw but one child whose classroom behavior was out of line. The Wall Street Journal says "The teen years are often fraught with door-slamming, eye-rolling, and seeming insensitivity...." Correction: That would be teenagers in the United States, and not all of them by any means.. Do teens in Africa have abnormal biology? How about those American teens who are not petulant, moody, insensitive, and disrespectful? What about teens 50-plus years ago? We did not slam doors, isolate ourselves in our rooms, refuse to interact with family members for days at a time, or engage in the sort of narcissistic drama that characterizes so many of todays adolescents. Neither did teens in the 1830s, whom Toqueville, in "Democracy in America," described as trustworthy, hard-working, responsible ...

BACKGROUND: There is a lack of evidence regarding the effect of dose, pattern and timing of prenatal alcohol exposure and behaviour problems in children aged 2 years and older. METHODS: A 10% random sample of women delivering a live infant in Western Australia (1995-96) were invited to participate in an 8-year longitudinal survey (78% response rate n = 2224); 85% were followed-up at 2 years, 73% at 5 years and 61% at 8 years. Alcohol consumption was classified by combining the overall dose, dose per occasion and frequency to reflect realistic drinking patterns. Longitudinal analysis was conducted using generalized estimating equations (GEE) to investigate the association between child behaviour as measured by the Child Behaviour Checklist at 2, 5 and 8 years of age and prenatal alcohol exposure collected 3 months postpartum for each trimester separately, adjusting for a wide range of confounding factors. RESULTS: Low levels of prenatal alcohol were not associated with child behaviour problems. There
In our population-based sample of adolescent twins, we observed significant associations between dimensions of the DBD phenotype and polymorphisms in the candidate genes 5-HTT and MAO-A, as well as with platelet MAO-B activity.. The gender ratio in the present study is somewhat lower than what is usually reported. One explanation for this could be that our sample consists of adolescents that are between childhood and adulthood whereas in other studies subjects are usually children or adults: Meta-analyses of childhood ADHD have shown a male:female ratio of 3:1 in non referred populations [29]. In our study of adolescents we found 1.6:1 for sub threshold diagnosis ADHD combined type. Studies of adult ADHD have shown ratios of 1.6:1 [30] and even 1:1 [31].. Our hypothesis that low platelet MAO-B activity is associated with high dimensions of the ADHD and DBD phenotype was verified only for DBD-symptoms in girls. Acting out anti-social related behaviors is more common and more socially acceptable ...
Purpose. Parents have important roles in child rearing, but the influence of their personality on rearing practices and their impact on the behavior of children has received surprisingly little attention. The aim of the current study was to investigate the relationship between parents personality and childrens problem behaviors.Materials and Methods. Participants consisted of 190 preschool outpatients (104 boys, 86 girls) and their parents who visited traditional Korean pediatric clinics with minor physical symptoms as chief complaints. The personality profiles of the both parents were measured by the Temperament and Character Inventory and childrens behavior problems by the Child Behavior Checklist 1.5-5. Correlation and stepwise regression analysis were employed for the statistical analyses.Results. The temperament trait of Harm Avoidance and the character traits of Self-Directedness and Self-Transcendence of the parents were significantly correlated with childrens problem behaviors.

The researchers looked at more than 260 mothers and their children, following them from the childrens birth until first grade. They assessed infants difficult temperament as well as how they were parented between the first week and the sixth month of life, based on both observations and parent reports. When the children were 2 and a half and 3 years old, the researchers watched mothers with their children doing tasks that challenged the children and required assistance from the parents. Finally, when the children were in kindergarten and first grade, researchers asked moms and teachers to rate the childrens behavior problems.. "Before the study, we thought it was likely the combination of difficult infant temperament and negative parenting that put parent-child pairs most at risk for conflict in the toddler period, and then put the children at risk for conduct problems at school age," according to Michael F. Lorber, a research scientist at New York University and lead author of the paper ...
