The book is addressed to doctors practicing this field, medical students, parents of sick children, as well as a wide range of readers who are concerned about the topic raised.

Pay attention to the psychological emphasis in the professor’s reflections: “Pride, pride, dignity, self-respect are a“ luxury ”for parents. Having transgressed through themselves, consciously considering themselves humiliated, “with a smile on their face”, “with pain and heaviness in the soul and in the heart” … they more easily forgive the whims of their children, give them education, upbringing, health …

At the same time, they are a “treasure” and “luxury” for children. And children, take these “riches” for granted, without thinking about where it all came from. And they use these “gifts” without assuming what lies ahead of them, how their fate will turn out when they grow up.

Unfortunately or fortunately, children often repeat the fate of their parents. And in the future life will “reward” them with the same “surprises” that they once presented to those who gave them life. Only by growing up, having children of their own, do they realize the past pain that they have given them … Someone manages to correct “their mistakes” … But most understand too late …

If the parents quarrel, the child does not get well
Evgeny and Evgeniya Gnatyshins

I can admit that Dr. Rakhmanov saved our family from divorce, brought us back the joy of life, showed that our love can work miracles. Observing other married couples who come for treatment with children, we noticed that if the parents quarrel, the child does not recover, because it is impossible to create a favorable emotional environment for him. But the parents do not understand this and are disappointed in the method.

The Gnatyshins' family with their son, after a course of autism treatment with Professor Rakhmanov

Oleg’s parents – Eugene and Eugene – believe that in treating a child, much depends on whether the family succeeds in creating harmonious relationships.

And those who have managed to rebuild the relationship get great results. From the outside, it is noticeable how the faces of the children change from one course to another, they become joyful, the stamp of the disease disappears. Professor Rakhmanov wrote the book “Family Neurosis”. We received it as a gift and we can say that reading this book would be useful for everyone – patients, doctors, and those who have not been affected by the disease.

But how to cope with mental pain, how to improve the atmosphere in the family? What consequences can there be during a child's illness?

The professor often tells us:

In order to cure a child, mom and dad must be cured first! When a child sees their parents happy, when happiness and love reign in the family, only then will the result of your child’s treatment be achieved.

In this, we were helped by another book by Professor Rakhmanov — “Family neurosis. Psychosomatic and autonomic disorders in children and adults ”.

This book taught us to control our emotions, correct our mistakes, and establish in the family the happiness, joy, and love that our children lacked so much. I cannot say that we managed it easily, but we tried to change ourselves.

When we quarrel, swear, shout, throw out our negativity, it seems to us that it becomes easier, but what are our children experiencing at this moment? – fear, which later develops into neuroses and other psychosomatic disorders.

I recommend reading this book to all parents who want to raise healthy, kind, and happy children!
