FEATURED POST: BATTLING KLEPTOMANIA IN CHILDREN

                          BATTLING KLEPTOMANIA IN CHILDREN


THEN he stood up, leant down and took off his shoes. The hot darkness of the room lay heavily on him.

He took a slow step forward and then another. His progress was silent. Opening the door, he stepped into the outer room.

He moved on, trying each board carefully with his stockinged foot before putting his full weight on it. He closed the door gently behind him, his fingers easing the door so that it shut without a sound.

Pressing his leg against the side of the refrigerator to guide him, his hands touched the ' chocolate pack'. With a smile, he reached out to two wraps and suddenly, the light came on and he was caught yet again.

There's no doubt that raising children isn't without its attendant challenges. Right from inception, when a child is born, parents/guardians are saddled with the responsibility of providing the basic needs he  needs for  optimal growth.

BATTLING KLEPTOMANIA IN CHILDREN can be seriously frustrating for parents. KLEPTOMANIA, which is the recurrent failure to resist impulses to steal objects/substances not needed for personal use or monetary value-- Shulman center, united States.

Parents of children exhibiting kleptomaniac tendencies often find the parenting job a herculean task.

To this effect, we've provided below some tips to tackle this behavioural anomaly:

1) BE OBSERVANT: 


As a parent, taking awareness of the early years of children is a crucial aspect in curbing kleptomania at the preliminary stage.

A child left on his own will always wander and/or dabble into different things which are most of the time, not palatable.

As parents, you should have an ' EAGLE EYE' over the affairs of your children. Study your child carefully so as to quickly and efficiently curb any form of anomaly before it becomes a shield wall. However, learn not to OVERKILL!

2) ONE-ON-ONE TALK/COUNSELLING:


AN up-to-date counselling should also be implemented for a child BATTLING with KLEPTOMANIA.

A well planned orientation programme for the child will go a long way in undoing the cords of this anomaly.

As parents, have a one-on-one talk with the affected child about the abnormality to find why he steals.

Sadly enough, in many homes today, this serious issue is been handled on a low-key.

Parents should counsel children from time to time on the negative effects this anomaly could have on their personality and lives as they age.

Also, a word of prayer and  citations from the holy books may help in the process.

3) REDUCE THE TENDENCIES:


You would only be playing pranks on yourself when you claim to be recovering from a particular situation or crisis and you still place yourself in a position where the possibility of reoccurrence is almost certain.

There are many dimensions to it. When children live in homes where there are often conflicts, violations of rights and denial of some basic needs, such a child may end up as a KLEPTOMANIAC.

To further curb this aberration, you can restrict such a child from situations or environments that births KLEPTOMANIAC TENDENCIES.

KLEPTOMANIA robs a child of his dignity and shape him as a potential criminal..

Therefore as parents, you need to understand that the child needs special care and attention. REMEMBER, it's easier to break a brick while its wet than when it solidifies. It's better to tackle the problem at the ' child stage' than it is to repair an adult.

JOB INTERVIEW: 7 EASY WAYS TO MAKE A GOOD FIRST IMPRESSION
Need I remind you the saying, " first impression lasts longer." Then, if truly you know this and you believe it holds( sure it does), you'll agree with me that making a good first impression is a serious issue that needs to be dealt with.
What you showcase determines the kind of response you receive. Should in case you come out offensively, say in an argument, then you leave the recipient with no other option than to receive it defensively.
Now, back to the matter in consideration, making a good first impression at JOB INTERVIEWS is simple but several people flop and at the long-run taint their chances of securing the job. Then you return to square one.
First impression apart from your resume/qualifications plays a very cogent role in determining whether you'd be singled out of the countless applicants for the job.

BUSINESS ISSUES: HOW CAN I PROMOTE MY BUSINESS( a question most entrepreneurs rarely get answers to)

HOW CAN I PROMOTE MY BUSINESS? ( a question most entrepreneurs rarely get answers to)

EVERYDAY, we see different start-ups sprout. They begin with so much enthusiasm and zeal that gives their ' target audience' a sought of impression they will be on for a long time.

But, however, what we imagine or the   FIRST IMPRESSION we get isn't always the end result.

When these start-ups get hit with the frustration and failures on several attempts to promote their business, they allow the anger and bitterness that we all sometimes feel while on the job hijack their zeal and vision which makes their business divert from one of ascension to one of constant regression. This therefore births the ever- bulging option to fold up which they readily give in to.

To be candid, no business or start-up experiences a bump free ride to success. But this doesn't rule out the fact that it's possible to make headway.

To this effect, we've packaged, just for you, useful tips or strategies…
