語錄:「我不夠時間看書呀?爸媽常叫我放下手上的書趕快寫功課,
    他們很煩氣。我喜歡最後一分鐘才動手,功課如是,測驗考試
    也一樣,最後也能過關,我最怕悶,要做喜歡的事(看書也好、
    砌模型也好)尤其是幾樣有興趣的東西同時做最開心。例如邊做
    功課邊聽音樂和上社交網站(如Facebook、Instagram等)
    我習慣同時應付這麼多任務,如果學校壓力大,我更需要做自
    己喜歡的事來減壓,可惜其他人偏偏不瞭解我。」

治療目標:現時醫學知識指出,ADHD的主流治療方案是使用藥物及行
     為治療,約兩三個月有效;如果是更複雜個案,則要加入家
     庭治療。

廢寢忘餐。by IChan

香港的主流教育趨勢,真的教人頭痛。有時家長的做法,更是嚇壞人。

「廢寢忘餐」形容勤奮用功的情況,原來在今天不但適用於形容打工一族,還可用於「小學生」。

朋友曾經參加一個小學生健康生活-飲食篇的講座,教授如何飲食平衡、食得健康及注意事項;家長們都舉起手機不停地拍攝屏幕上的演講內容,看得到他們都很關心小朋友的健康。

結尾時的答問環節,有一條提問令朋友印象深刻。太太問:「因為太忙,所以晚上大約六時吃蔬果。小朋友足夠營養嗎?」身為營養師兼家長的講者問道:「你們還會吃晚飯嘛!沒有問題。」太太嚷着:「晚飯就是六時。」講者回應:「吃過蔬果再吃飯也可。」太太澄清問題:「因一家太忙碌了,所以晚上六時只吃蔬果,這就是晚飯了。」講者一再問道:「沒有粉、麪、飯、肉或魚嗎?」「沒有了!」「一家吃素的嗎?」「不是!」營養師理所當然答道:「絶對營養不足夠的,更何況小學階段的小朋友最需要營養的呢!」

朋友聽得愕然,知道有些小朋友功課加活動,忙得只有十五分鐘吃飯,但是由於不夠時間甚至忙碌得連吃飯也省掉,就是首次親耳聽到。功課、活動真的忙碌到此?重要到逼個地步嗎?

筆者抱着一個信念:功課做不完,課本未及溫習,樂器未夠時間練習……怎樣都重要不過一頓包含有菜、有肉、有粉/麪/飯的正常晚飯吧!當然晚飯後可以吃㸃生果或甜品就更加完美了。

AS* student B: I always forgot what I should be doing. I need directions. I was late for classes and assignment. In the morning, I should take shower before going out. But I don’t really like taking shower. It took a long while to decide if I wanted to take a shower. I was too busy to go to the morning class. It’s too much for me.

Counselor: What’s that?

AS* student B: It takes more than an hour to shower. There are many steps. Lots of decisions to make. Too consuming.

Counselor: What decisions?

AS* student B: Like choosing the right clothes, finding the right towel for my feet, hair and body, deciding the right temperature of water and…..

Counselor: And what?

AS* student B: I am able to focus in the class when…

Yesterday, I met a client who was very reflective and able to describe his feelings and thought in concrete terms. His expression often surprises me. 昨天我見過一個愛深思和自省的人,他有種特別天賦能具體表達自己的思想和感情。他説的話有時是我意料之外

Counselor: I am very impressed by your quest for meaning and your desire for personal growth.
輔導員:你尋找生命意義和渴求個人成長的熱誠令我感動。

Client: I am a loner. People don’t really understand me.
案主A: 我是個孤獨者。別人不真正了解我。

Counselor: I thought your reflective personality would bring you and your friends true encounter.
輔導員:我相信你這麼有深度的性格特質,會為你帶來朋友和珍摰的交流。

Client: No.
案主A:無。

Counselor: Why?
輔導員:何解?

Client: Not me. It’s because your talented ability to connect with people has made our encounter. You know….. you are a universal power adaptor.
案主A:不在我。是你溝通的天賦令人表現真我,也促成了我們深入的交流。可知道⋯⋯你是個「萬能蘇頭」。

Counselor Jo: What a metaphor! What a compliment!
輔導員:受𠖥若驚!

Why Is It Not Sufficient?

Why Education for the Smart Not Sufficient in Itself?

Why Caring Own Wellbeing Not Sufficient in Itself?

The Answer Is Simple: We Belong to One Another Because We Find Deep Joy, Peace and Unity in Serving the Weak and the Needy.

Teen Thoughts 101: ‘Look Up’ – video on Social media addiction

Please spare less than 5 minutes to watch this video! I guarantee that it will somehow impact your life.

We live in a world today where we are surrounded by people who bury their faces into their phones. Let’s admit it, we’re one of them as well. This is a beautiful video that opens your eyes to see how unsocial we are because of these so-called ‘social’ media sites. We have isolated ourselves into a small imaginary cubicle with our electronic device.

According to StatisticBrain, 98% of the 18-24 year olds who voted on this website states to already use social media. Imagine the future generation? Will 5 year olds begin to sign up for a Facebook account? And before we know it, your great-grandchildren might not even know what swings and slides are! So let’s make a change on the damage we made.
