Child psychiatry clinician and famed “Concentration Wizard” Liao Sheng-Kuang is here to help you understand the real reasons behind your kids’ common behavioral issues, and shows you how inattention, hyperactivity, and poor posture can all be solved through constructive activity, no scolding required!
Everybody knows Nobita Nobi, right – the good-hearted but lazy main character in Doraemon? Parents who have their own “Nobita Nobi” know him better than most – how he lies around all day, falls asleep in class, and always forgets his homework – and might be apt to think it’s because he’s a “bad kid.” But the famous child psychiatry clinician Liao Sheng-Kuang wouldn’t agree: in his eye, Nobita Nobi is a perfect example of a child whose natural biological needs are being misunderstood as bad behavior.
With that in mind, Dr. Kuang-Kuang (as many kids know him) addresses childhood behavior in the five areas that usually matter most to parents: attention, study, self-care, emotional balance, and interpersonal relationships, in each case looking behind the surface expression into biological and psychological processes behind it. Does your child slump over the table or sprawl over the sofa? Weak abdominal muscles might be making sitting up straight too painful, or underdeveloped shoulders are turning writing into a toil.
In almost every case of what adults think of as standard child misbehavior, the child is responding instinctively to needs that might be poorly understood by everyone involved. By illuminating the links between body, brain, and behavior, and offering new practices that help children grow instead of limiting them, Dr. Kuang-Kuang can help pull families out of the cycle of punishment and misbehavior that does no one any good.
