Feel strong!

My story: Sometimes I have perceived myself to be among the weak, Sometimes I had to project myself as weak (to my husband) to protect the teenager child. Today I see myself strong as I am working towards making the"perceived" weak feel strong. And I am stronger than the strong.
Abundance is a state of mind within you. If you just look at "lack," the lack increases in life. See what you have, and then abundance increases.
His Holiness
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar 
This is a call for all psychiatric patients to feel strong identifying and complimenting yourself for your own strength.

Honor your spouse

Recognise your spouse is the powerful mentor for you. Listen to his/her comments. Remember they are oppurtunities for you to take note of your shortcomings and work on them, or reminders for you that there are different ways of doing things. You do not develop well when you are always caught up with your own way of thinking and nothing else. When you are open to new ideas, may be good ideas from your spouse, I can assure you can soon grow as a dynamic personality. Compliment your spouse for all the care he or she shows towards you and just for being there in your life. Do not hesitate to say "Thanks", "I love you" or "So nice of you" . I am proud of my husband and honor him by writing this post.

I and my husband below:

Prevention of Teenage Depression

Parents can take efforts to prevent teenage depression, though there is no sure way to prevent teenage depression. The chances of teenage depression is higher when one or both the parents undergoes depression or anxiety or even great amount of stress. Parents have to learn to be calm and gentle while communicating with their teenage children. There are a few things that parents can do for reducing the chance of teenage depression.

1. Spend time with your teenage child everyday.
2. Praise your child's accomplishments and strengths whatever be the area. .
3. Talk with your teenage child on topics she likes or is excited about.
4. Give positive feedback for positive behavior.
5. Do some activities together like preparing meals, eating together or watching a movie
6. Allow your teenager to express his or her feelings. Ask open ended questions like "What is exciting this week ?"
7. Respond to your child's anger without reacting with anger. Instead stay calm and handle the situation gracefully.
Graduate yourself on the same day your child graduates on something called "Understanding your Teen" and "Praising your Teen"

Remember parents have to make adjustments understanding the teenage child's needs and preferences. Doing so will pay back in the long term when the child leads a successful and happy life.
