Q. I'm a mother of a 5 years old child. My child doesn't communicate; even she don't utter a single word. She doesn't smile nor she understand her hunger, thirst etc. She use to stay alone in her own world. She also even don't mix up with other children of her age. I have visited to child specialist but they are saying my child is not normal. What to do now? As after this my husband want me to divorce as he thinks that my child is not normal is just because of me. What to do now?
First of all, be calm. Your child is not abnormal, it's just she needs help. Sometime due to fixation child gets into stress, which makes her occupied with her own thoughts. Communication is the only key, the more you let your child open, she will automatically gets engaged in other activities like playing , eating etc. As you illustrated, she can speak but she don't share. I advice you to take her to the child psychologist or counselor, get her assessed and then, come to the conclusion of normal or abnormal. You both parents, should take her to the psychologist, be support to her ( child) , she needs you both. Then opt for counselling, once she will be able to ventilate, she will be fine.
