A few years ago a mother brought her 5-year-old, supposedly ADHD son to see me during their holidays interstate. Without his usual Ritalin, which was required for him to attend school, he was often impossible to manage, yet his mother knew that inside was a gentle little boy who occasionally appeared.
He roared through the front door, knocked over a lamp and proceeded to terrorize my home until we took him out on the balcony. Even the most casual observer would agree that this little boy was acting as if something was irritating him, and that his behaviour was more than just naughty. He was behaving as though someone was constantly sticking him with thumb tacks, or as if he was actually wearing the proverbial ‘hair shirt’.
Concerned at the side affects of the Ritalin, a friend had suggested she pay me a visit, to see if any light could be shed on his erratic behaviour. Her friend had had personal experience with our savvy strategies on her own children health. The disastrous effects of what seem like insurmountable issues, syndromes and the like, can be as simple as dealing with three simple steps that any family cam take. 1-2-3. After all, as we say ‘Wellness, It’s Not That Hard!‘.
