About Birth Defects
All parents are concerned with the various aspects of the children and this usually beginning right from the time of conception, and usually never ends. Perhaps one of the first concerns would be about any possible birth defects that child may be born with and how to cope as best as possible should this be the case.
What Can Happen
Birth defects are usually defined as any prevailing abnormalities of structure, function or body metabolism that may or may not be obvious at the time of the birth.
For the more obvious abnormalities, the relevant supporting teams will be able to assist the parent in either learning how to cope with the birth defect or help the parent explore all options available if any, to rectify the defect as soon as it is permissible.
The structural or metabolic defects would be focused mainly on specific body parts that are either missing or deformed in some way which may be caused by some problem with the body chemistry that was unable for some reason to create a complete and perfect baby in the womb.
These defects usually include cases of spina bifida, cleft palate, clubfoot and congenital dislocated hip and many other possibilities.
The defects caused by the congenital infections can usually result in abnormalities when the mother experience and infection before or during the pregnancy stage. These infections will cause the birth defects and could be in the form of rubella, cytomegalovirus, syphilis, toxoplasmosis, Venezuelan equine encephalic, parvovirus and chicken pox.
The pregnancy period is usually a stage where precautions should be taken to limit the chances of the mother having to cope with the onslaught of deceases that might have very damaging effects on the fetus.
Unfortunately this presence of deformity is not always due to some infection as even seemingly healthy parents, are sometimes presented with a child with apparent deformities.
All kids at one time or another have some form of behavioral problems, it is mostly quite an acceptable norm that most parent are usually able to cope with. However when a particular behavior pattern becomes consistent and destructive, help should be sort in understanding and rectifying the situation so that all parties will be able to cope.
The more common and not really threatening or overly damaging behavioral disorders would include over active kids getting into mischief, playing pranks, being occasionally rebellious and other milder behavior patterns.
However when these seemingly milder patterns take on a more serious and sinister display of negativity then it can no longer be thought of as normal but now should be looked upon as behavior disorders.
The more common warning signs of such negative and often destructive behavior would be harming or threatening themselves, pets or others, managing or destroying property, lying or stealing, not doing well academically and even skipping school, early smoking, drinking and drug use, early sexual activity, frequent tantrums and arguments and consistent hostility towards authority figures.
All the above displays would certainly signify a problem child and the parent would almost always feel at a lost on how to cope in such situations.
The confusion and anger felt of both sides should be dealt with suitably so that progress can be made to try and overcome this negativity and help the child accept the idea of help with the goal of getting back a calmer and better behavior that others can live with.
Recent research has been able to show that it is not always outside circumstance that contribute to the negative behavior patterns but can sometimes be due to some disorder in the brain.
Lack of certain chemicals or simply the imbalances of chemical in the brain can be one of the causes for the behavior being experienced thus the need to explore this possibility too.
