Hello Ocean: I see this is your first post here on PC. So... welcome to Psych Central.

I'm sorry, but with the little information you provided, I don't think there is anything I can offer with regard to your concern. Perhaps other members, here on PC, will have some thoughts they can share.

I hope you find PC to be of benefit.

I am not sure how your question pertains to mental health. Perhaps you could rephrase it offering additional information and context. We really would like to help if we can.

Structure and patience are important. Structure as in having a routine. Gentle reminders and encouragement work best.

Discipline may not be the best for someone with down syndrome. Its not like they would be misbehaving on purpose.

I think it mostly requires empathy and patience, Ocean 18. As for the rest, every person is different so you need to see what kind of person he/she is and what may be better suited for him/her. Wish you good luck! Let us know how it goes. Sending many hugs to you and to him/her

Discipline is overrated.


As long as the person in question isn't a threat to themselves or anybody else, who cares?


Most people with Downs Syndrome have trouble holding down jobs anyways. Certain job environments are about the only aspect of life that you need excessive structure and discipline for. Let the poor guy/girl be happy.

Had a special needs teacher explain the other day, that he found stating to his students with downs syndrome that "you know this, you've done this before" as effective in not seeing them backslide into the "I forget" path. It was in relation to working on a repetive task and job training.

I used to employ mentally disabled persons at the coffee shop I managed. Pleasure to have. Job performance was never in question. They could always be counted on in times of a rush or stress. Appreciated by all staff and most customers. A treat to work with. And I had a great deal of appreciation for them accomplishing their tasks. Mind you their tasks were routine but they were mastered easily. Yep, if I was in the position to do so again I definitely would take on and work alongside the intellectually disabled including Down Syndrome.

incidentally, it is a different world today where the intellectually disabled are integrated into society. My children, now adults, were schooled alongside such peers and thus being around people with such challenges is to them their everyday normal. It is no longer the days of separating them into those who can and can't, normal and abnormal but those who haven't and have challenges. Thank goodness the world is a little easier for those that are the challenged. Thank goodness - at least in my world - they are treated with a great deal more acceptance.

As for discipline on either side I don't see where this has anything to do with it. Simply treat them as you would with all people; with dignity and respect. Simply challenge yourself to have a great deal more patience.
