This is regarding my daughter who is 2.5 yrs old behavioural problems. She has has history of colic and allergies during her infancy. Now alleviated. She is extremely stubborn, defiant and cannot hear a ‘No’. She is very persistent and cannot be distracted. She is a fussy eater and extremely active; she needs minimal sleep. She has been going to a preschool since 18 months and very extrovert, loves the company of children. She is a very poor sleeper but has improved now.
Wondering if there are remedies to improve her temperament. Sometimes it gets very difficult to handle and goes out of control. We have tried to explain to her, given her incentives but nothing works. Kindly guide.
Good homeopathic treatment will definitely help your daughter to a great extent. Children respond very well to homeopathy. Find a good classical homeopath who will take a detailed case history. Not only good remedy selection but proper case management is essential.
It might help to read some good books dealing with such problems. One such book that comes to mind is ‘The Discipline Miracle’ by Dr. Linda Pearson. The book has good techniques and suitable situational solutions which work well with kids. Very often, we as parents, handle disciplining wrong which worsens the situation. Good luck and may you find much joy in your child!
