frustration

The emotion resulting when aims or intentions are blocked. Frustration is inevitable but some people aim for goals inherently beyond their capacity and suffer a much higher level of frustration than others. Others aim for mutually incompatible, or equally attractive but mutually exclusive, goals. Frustration breeds anger which may lead to aggression and this is often displaced and directed against an inappropriate target. Displaced anger is a common cause of marital discord.

Patient discussion about frustration

Q. I am frustrated with my child.I am suspecting him as an ADHD child. I am frustrated with my child. He lands on the open wall of the balcony. It a very dangerous position and a single fall can take his life. So I closed the door to obstruct him moving nearby balcony. He is just 4 years and such deeds can make him lose a lot for his future. He cannot remain silent for a minute now. I cannot work in his presence. My neighbor is suspecting him as an ADHD child.

A. Possibilities of being ADHD along with these symptoms at this age cannot be ruled out. I think you must have him get tested by a doctor. Because many signs are involved to diagnose a child an ADHD. It may get confuse with some other disorder even. Guess if, your child is not ADHD then there are many ways to tackle the non ADHD child and you have to deal him like other irate child.
