Fluctuating emotional quotient in children prompts them to take up wrong steps

BANGALORE: They have dreams on one side and parental pressure on the other. Somewhere in between, there is a lack of attention from parents, academic pressure at school and even punishment. The communication gap between parents, teachers and children also play a major role in weakening children emotionally, say child psychiatric experts.

The case of D Deepthi, 14, from Hongasandra, who set herself afire on Monday, is an eye-opener. The pressure to study hard and frustration that she would not become a dancer, prompted Deepthi into ending her life.

Child psychiatrists in the city are worried about parenting practices followed today, but fluctuating emotional quotient (EQ) in children, especially teenagers, has also become a problem that needs to be fixed quickly.
