Hyderabad: The current generation of children is exposed to a quickly evolving world and that makes many parents anxious. Many seek professional help to ensure that their children are ‘normal’ and if there is any learning disability or problems in development, they want to address it quickly rather than allow it to escalate. Psychologists say most of the parental anxiety stems from the fact that these parents want everything prim and proper.

Dr Bharat Reddy, senior psychiatrist, explained, “We have often found that the new generation of parents requires psycho-education to understand the development of their children. 

 

“They need to be patient as physical and mental development happens till the age of five years. While there is a need to identify disabilities early, not all of them have the problem. But many of them are not willing to listen and hop from one doctor to another.”

Dr Naresh Vadlamani, senior consultant psychiatrist says, “In the western culture, broken homes, foster children, step children and parents is the rule not the exception. There is a lot of pressure of parenting hence the awareness was created for diagnosis and parenting style. In a majority of the Indian population there is still an overwhelming stigma and denial of these disorders. Due to this reason, there is a lot of under diagnosis which needs to be addressed. The issue of over diagnosis is only amongst the affluent or those who are self-diagnosing their conditions. There is definitely a vast majority that requires awareness on these subjects and has to be properly tackled.”
