Anak = Investasi?

Anak = Investasi?
Minggu lalu saya ada pasien anak (usia 8 tahun) dengan masalah belajar di sekolah, plus riwayat terlambat bicara waktu kecil. Dia datang dengan keluarganya (ayah, ibu, adik). Selama pemeriksaan, ayahnya cukup dominan. Terlihat pola-pola relasi yang cenderung kurang ‘sehat’, misalnya ayah menyalahkan ibu karena ibu banyak diam, ayah banyak mengkritik anak, ayah menertawakan (sambil tepok jidat!) saat anak merespon pertanyaan saya secara kurang tepat, ibu yang selalu menyuruh adik mengalah (saat pasien dan adiknya rebutan mainan, pasien pasti merengek ke ibu agar mengambilkan mainan yang dipegang adik), dsb.

Ms. Ning (lab staff in health center where I’m working at) suddenly ran to my room with a phone call on. She looked so panic and confused. I was in my room with a physiotherapist and her kiddy patient. Then Ms. Ning asked me whether I had any on-going/planned activity or not. She told me about her cousin who had been in a depressed state. Actually Ms. Ning sought for doctors, but it was late on afternoon, most of doctors were preparing for going home. She also asked for some diazepam, but she couldn’t get it cuz druggists aren’t allowed to give any medications without doctor’s prescription. Even they suggested psychologist first instead of drugs. Fortunately I had no appointment and ready to help in any needs. Continue reading
