Do you find it diffic
ult trying to make a deal with your children?

Are you tired of feeling as though your children never agree with any request you make?

Does it feel like your child is constantly arguing and negotiating every request or rule that you suggest?

Conflict between parents and children is part of a family life. However, conflicts may go on for a long time and get worse over time, resulting in stress and negative relationships. There are a few common sources of parent-child conflicts.

  1. As much as parents try to be attentive and sensitive to their children, they cannot be there all the time. There will be occasions when parents are preoccupied with professional responsibilities, and unintentionally miss the verbal as well as non-verbal cues of their children. This, as a result, is what brings about the inevitable conflicts between parents and children.
  2. Setting limits that are not aligned with the children’s primary emotional state can cause a disconnection between both parties. For instance, curfew is a classic topic for parents and children to argue about.
  3. When a parent loses control of his or her emotions towards their children, this will cause an intense emotional distress especially when parents engage in screaming, name-calling or threatening behaviors. These types of distressing conflicts typically occur when the parents have unresolved issues from their own backgrounds.

TINA FRANKLIN

As we know, most relationships need effort and commitment in order to have what it takes to go the distance as the time passes. In fact, one simple fact that causes many relationships not to last is because of “you are not sexually compatible”.

During the start of new relationship, couples are often taking things easily when both person are crazily in love. Unfortunately, it does not take long for reality to take place after the honeymoon period. Thus, if you are not sexually compatible, the relationship will be affected later if the issue is not addressed in the beginning.

Thus, it is very important that both partners to be honest with each other, especially in the early relationship and talks about how much one prioritise sex ideally, and how frequently they would prefer to have it.

In addition, when sexual incompatible takes place, couple should take actions to talk about it and find solutions instead of just let things slide off.

Sex is such a diverse thing, there’s no right way to have it and no one way of doing it. But it can play a big role underlying a relationship problem. Many men experience erectile dysfunction from time to time, this isn’t necessarily a cause for concern but if it keeps happening, it would be a sign of health issues: psychological or physical or both.

 
Erectile Dysfunction is the inability to get and keep an erection firm enough to have sexual intercourse. It’s also referred to as impotence.

 
Having erection trouble occasionally is common. But if Erectile Dysfunction is regular, it can cause stress, affect self-confidence and contribute to relationship problems. Problems getting or keeping an erection can also be a sign of an underlying health condition that needs to be addressed.

 
If you’re concerned about erectile dysfunction, don’t feel embarrassing to talk with your doctor and psychologist. Treating an underlying condition is important to reverse erectile dysfunction. It may involve nutritional medicine, sex and couple therapy.

 

What cause Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) can be psychophysical event, which means it can be caused psychologically and physically.

 
Psychological problems – If you experience an erection problem in front of your partner, you may have performance anxiety and concern that it’ll happen again. This can lead to further anxiety and cause problems to erections. Or if your partner becomes critical and frustrated, it will be another stress to get your erection again.

 
Changes in libido – Sex hormone eg: Testosterone, DHEA and Progesterone, and neurotransmitters (brain chemicals): dopamine (which helps you experience pleasure) and PEA plays a critical role in libido. Deficiencies in these hormones and neurotransmitters may be associated with your ED. But low Testosterone is not the only reason of ED, it can be caused by chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, oxidation of cholesterol leading to hardening of the arteries, which in turn leads to low Testosterone.

 

Assessment & Treatment for ED
Laboratory tests – Male hormone test can be conducted to check the level of Testosterone and other hormone as well. Neurotransmitters test can be conducted to test Dopamine and PEA level. Oxidised LDL test can be conducted to check whether your cholesterol are hardening and blocking your arteries blood supply to your penis (www.MalaysiaLaboratory.com). Nutritional therapy to supplement deficient hormones and neurotransmitters and reverse cholesterol hardening and oxidation can be taken up.

 

Couple Psychotherapy – ED is not easily to talk about, but not talking about it can bring a serious damage to relationship. Couple and sex therapy can be considered to open the line of communication to talk about ED and sexual problems to resolve them.
Seeking treatment from psychologists, sex and couple therapists for ED can improve a man’s sex life by restoring back his libido and interest in sex, leading to a satisfying and intimate relationship.
