Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Some children show such desire whenever they see opposite sex person. With growing age, such desire will decrease. You can deal it by the following measures.
  • Whenever he demands marriage, never say no, It encourages him. Just tell him, you will talk with girls family.
  • Encourage good qualities in him and say that if you achieve this, then we will plan a marriage for you. Positive reinforcement.
  • Make him busy in some musical instruments or other activities.
  • If you still think these measures are not working and he is also having other conduct disorders along with it, then I will suggest you visit a nearby psychiatrist for medications like Risperidone. This medicine will help in early recovery.
