Is there a cure for the Peter Pan syndrome?
Yes! Cowbell is the cure for peter pan syndrome. All you have to do is play the cowbell to the kid and their fish (if they don't have a fish get them one) and they will be cured! This is not guaranteed and may have side effects including having an alliance with Captain Hook, crushing dreams FOREVER, and losing your love for cowbells and fish. I tried on my fish once, it died.

Peter Pan syndrome is not listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, and is not recognized by the American Psychiatric Association as a mental disord…er. Don't know what has been said before. Peter Pan felt sadly unable to be accepted by the adult world. As a defense, he rejected what he perceived to be rejecting him. He would hide whenever adults would come on the scene so that he would avoid interacting with them. Adults presented the ongoing threat of the emotional pain of rejection. Peter was just fearful and insecure with feelings of inadequacy to an extreme and defended against this thru avoidance of the potential cause. A fear of failure when interacting with others that he perceived to be more capable and in control than he was. Peter Pan syndrome means an overwhelming fear of failure interacting with those perceived to be more adequate which is defended against thru avoidance, that is all. Peter Pan syndrome, a desire to remain young and not face the responsibilities of youth, is the natural result of anyone who had a good childhood. The naive security of youth is looked upon fondly as an ideal state of being. Although the "condition," which is really just a state of mind, has gained a negative connotation in quasi-psychological use, it is actually a normal part of the post-adolescent mindset. If, however, the Peter Pan is to completely shun adult responsibility to the detriment of happiness or relationships, he can be said to be a "victim" of this syndrome.

PETER PAN SYNDROME has been accepted in psychology and laypeople and, by some psychology professionals since the book "THE PETER PAN SYNDROME: MEN WHO HAVE NEVER GROWN UP) …by Dr. Dan Kiley and published in 1983. It characterizes the personality of an immature person and also includes narcissistic behavior. It groups those with this disorder an undependable, rebellious, anger, narcissism, dependency, and manipulation tendencies. According to Dr. Kiley, "Peter Pan" is the adult little boy who, when in a relationship or in seeking a relationship, acts out a need for mothering. Dr. Kiley also wrote another book called, "The Wendy Dilemma" published in 1984. A woman who (often unconsciously) acts in a mother role. Contributing the other half of co-dependent couple's circumstances, her responses to the Peter Pan man, is over-protection, possessiveness, complaining, and "martyrdom." A book written by most doctors is simply one man's opinion or a small group of men's opinions and does not make it necessarily true. I believe while working with the human mind it is so important to leave dignity intact, and the quick labeling system demoralizes many patients. Patients with some diseases of the brain (that's right .. it's a disease just like diabetes, heart disease, etc.) sometimes can be helped, and most can cope through life and hopefully cured. The brain, in the medical/scientific world has been the least studied of any other part of the body. Now it's catch-up time! The brain is like a giant circuit system (like wires) that gives out signals to move our eyes, move our mouths, our limbs, etc. Nervous system disorders is a problem with a circuit that is not functioning, and thus, that is what depression and other so-called "mental" disorders are. Already studies and tests are being done to concentrate on the short-circuit system of the brain causing whatever problem that particular patient may have. I have read medical articles that there will possibly be something like (a pacemaker for a heart) put into the brain to control these dysfunctions of the brain. This would be a wonderful addition to the medical world because people with depression, nervous system disorders would no longer have to rely on medications and bad side effects. It's a man who never takes on responsibility.

Answer . \nIt can be to some degree, but alcoholics become this way for many different reasons. They could be under stress, work in a company that has meetings and drinks… are on the house, or, they are genetically programmed to crave alcohol. A Peter Pan Syndrome is someone who doesn't want to grow up, and, in most cases alcoholics are just hooked on alcohol and immaturity isn't always part of it. There are many alcoholics out in society that hold down top executive jobs and get through the day and they come from all different races and all walks of life.\n. \nMarcy
Answer . If it's just a small amount of the Peter Pan syndrome then why get rid of it? Sometimes I wish I still had that magical part inside of me that I had as a child, …but after years of reality shoved up my nose (and most people are like this) we forget to maintain that magical child-like part of us that can make life more fun and it can be passed onto your children and grandchildren. If this little bit of Peter Pan syndrome isn't hurting anyone then be thankful you either have it or that you are around someone that does.
Peter Pan (the character created by J. M. Barrie) is a boy who overheard his parents discussing what he was to be when he was a man but always wants to be a boy and to have fu…n! so he ran away to Neverland. Neverland is a place filled wiht pirates, indians, fairies, lost boys, and a crocodile forever chasing Captain Hook who ate his hand and liked the taste so much that he follows Hook licking his lips for the rest of him. He does not know any stories or how to sew pockets so he comes back to Earth to listen to stories by windows. One night, when listening to Cinderella by the Darling's nursery window, his shadow gets caught and is kept in a drawer in the nursery. he later comes back to get his shadow waking the young Wendy Darling who wakes her two brothers, John and Michael Darling, and Peter teaches them all how to fly and takes them to Neverland where he is the captain of the Lost Boys and Wendy becomes their "mother" and makes pockets for them, cares for them, and tells them stories. Peter is enemies with the Captian Jas Hook. Captain of the Jolly Rodger. he is also good friends with the fairie Tinker Bell, who is absurdly jealous of Wendy. Peter then becomes friends with one enemy, the indians, when saving the chief's daughter Tiger Lily from the pirates on Marooners Rock. In summary, Peter Pan is the only boy who never grows up, who is quite conceited on all his incredible talents... who, all the while, misses his mother but would never let anyone else know.
Some of the recommendations for children with the "Edison" trait could pertain here.... A child with the Edison trait needs to feel he's in control. He …will accept help only if it does not threaten his autonomy. He is prone to feeling crowded and seeing adults as overbearing. The Edison-trait child is easily overwhelmed. For this reason, he needs clear direction, phrased in brief, concise messages.
In the book and stage play by James Matthew Barrie; About a boy - a 4 or 5 years old, who ran away from home when he was just a baby, because his parents planned his future bu…t he never wanted to grow up but always to be a little boy and have fun - at least according to his own words. He always does remain a little boy because, he lived those few years amongstt fairies in Kensington Gardens until they took him to Neverland, which is an island somewhere hidden on this earth, where all chidlren go, when they're dreaming but he got there while awake. In Neverland no one ages a day, so Peter Pan remains a 4 to 5 year old child. The story is about his adventures in Neverland, with a girl Wendy Darling, her 2 little brothers, other lost boys, his fairy Tinkerbell, and the villain - pirate captain James Hook, who is obsessed with trying to murder Peter. The basic theme of the story is every boy's (especially Peter's) mother issues, to which the girl Wendy Darling addresses. In a nutshell; Peter Pan is a dark but very childlike story about a mother's love or lack of it and about lost children and eternal childhood. Originally there is no two-way romance between Peter Pan and Wendy but only Wendy feels romantically towards Peter, who only sees and wants her as a mother-figure.
Virtually the same thing.
not growing up or refusing to take responsibility as an adult
Something involved with children, or imagination. A teacher, camp counselor, or artist. Around these jobs. You can't be a good artist without lots of imagination!
