Many babies don’t want to take a bath when they are told by their parents. Some babies hide. But sometimes the baby takes a bath and screams, unexpectedly, because of this reason!
It’s not mischievous that children don’t cooperate in bathing
Ms. Zhang’s son is 5 years old this year. The kindergarten teacher told her that other children wash their hands and face very well with the teacher, but her children are not willing to wash. Every time the teacher takes more than ten minutes to persuade her, the child reluctantly cooperates. During the washing process, she still shouts loudly. Ms. Zhang also found that the child always danced under the shower head when bathing at home. The water temperature was very suitable, but her son shouted loudly and scalded. It would take half an hour to bathe him. Ms. Zhang always thought that her son was naughty and active. Unexpectedly, in the psychological clinic of Wuhan maternal and child health care hospital, her son was found to be a kind of sensory integration disorder: “tactile over defense”.
Yang Shaoping, director of the children’s psychological clinic of the hospital, said that in the second half of 2007, a screening of sensory integration disorders was carried out in 2015 children over 5 years old in 15 kindergartens affiliated to Wuhan City, and 32.85% of the children had different levels of sensory integration disorders. The results of this survey are basically the same as other cities in China.
Mr. Yang said that sensory integration disorders are common among children, but they are still unfamiliar to many parents. Most parents said they had not been exposed to the concept of “sensory integration disorder”, and some even equated “sensory integration disorder” with mental retardation and psychological problems, which is not correct. Sensory integration disorder refers to the fact that external sensory stimulation information cannot be effectively combined in the central nervous system of children, so that the whole body cannot operate harmoniously. The disease has no effect on the physical development of children, but if it is allowed to develop, it will cause a variety of psychological obstacles and diseases over time, which will weaken people’s cognitive and adaptive ability to varying degrees, but children with sensory integration disorder may not have mental or mental problems.
Director Yang said that sensory integration disorders can be improved by symptomatic training, but parents’ attention is the key. Early detection, early intervention, and effective intervention and training measures should be taken to eliminate the adverse effects of sensory integration disorders on children’s growth as soon as possible.
