Emperor syndrome

It is called emperor syndrome, a type of behavior disorder that occurs in children. In general, this begins within the home at the moment in which the child begins to challenge the father and mother, and later does so with any individual.

This syndrome is characterized by the fact that the affected person usually presents a feeling of authority towards others; Generally this is usually presented by the fact that the parents grant excessive privileges to the boy or girl who suffers from it, pleasing him in everything he wants without having any type of condition; In this way, when he does not get what he wants, he will become extremely angry, even being able to trigger verbal and physical aggression along with airs of authority and arrogance.

Among the most outstanding characteristics of the emperor syndrome, the following stand out.

  • He overperceives what he deserves. That is to say that the child does not ask, on the contrary, he demands; to the point of not feeling satisfaction with anything. When he finally manages to get what he wants, he goes back to wanting more than he got.
  • Low tolerance for frustration, constant feeling of boredom or denial of what you have asked for. If this is the case, he usually responds with tantrums, anger, insults or violence with his family and friends, regardless of whether it is in a public place.
  • He has little ability to solve problems on his own. This is because he is used to being solved by others.
  • He is self-centered, therefore he firmly believes that the world revolves around him.

You must be very aware of children who tend to systematically impose their will or, failing that, have tantrums in public places in front of the whole family. In the same way, it is important to be attentive to the child who always gets away with it, since, on many occasions, they turn the family around her.
