Parenting Child Guidance

In the 21st century, relationships between parents and children have become more complex. Communication gap, Peer Pressure and Generation Gap can turn the relationship sour.

Childhood is the most impressionable and influential time in all of our lives. It is the period where the mind is shaped and developed. Hence, it is absolutely imperative for the new-age parents to understand their child’s psychology. They need to guide and nurture their child as they grow up and treat them different than adults. The parents need to find and encourage the unique personality trait of their child/children so that their self-esteem is developed and they go onto becoming happy and successful in their life.

At the least, the parents can observe their child’s behavior, expressions and body language as they eat, sleep, study or play and spend as much time as they can with them. But since most of the parents are working professionals, they fail to do so.

Childhood is quite tender and there are several neurodevelopmental, emotional, mental and behavioral problems as mentioned below which are prevalent in younger people.



  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Autism
  • Learning Disability
  • Tic Disorders
  • Feeding and toileting troubles
  • Anxiety
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Delayed response to trauma
  • Attachment and eating disorders
  • Self-harming tendencies
  • Depression
  • Disruptive behavior

Of course, parents wouldn’t know or understand the symptoms of such problems. In such a scenario, it is advised that they get in touch with professionals who have in-depth insights about the symptoms and understand what is there in the mind of their child.

The ones who are equipped with the necessary knowledge to understand every bit about child psychology are psychologists and psychiatrists. Adept at understanding the behavioral, mental and emotional problem of a child, from their birth to adolescence, a psychologist and psychiatrist can provide the right care and cure for all the problems.

They have studied child psychology and conduct regular researches to improve the treatment procedures so that better and quicker results are achieved. Besides applying their knowledge of science and medicine, the psychologists and psychiatrists use a variety of creative treatment methods like cognitive behavioral, etc. They adapt to the need and condition of a child and interact with them in a friendly manner.

Understanding the Difference between Psychologists and Psychiatrists

Although their motive is similar which is to understand and solve any and every issue with a child, even the smallest or severest of it, there are certain differences between them. Child psychologists may conduct individual or family therapy sessions to treat the children with problems. Some of them focus mainly on neuropsychological testing to point out the problem areas.

On the other hand, child psychiatrists are licensed to prescribe medications. They are also allowed to order lab and diagnostic tests to read the condition of a child and offer relevant solution. Sometimes, they also admit children to a hospital or offer consultations to patients who are already admitted.
