Will giving a cell phone to your kid cause him to have anti-social behavior?

Give guidance too!: Just giving your child adult electronic tools without guidelines on their use is just as dangerous as giving them a chain saw without instruction in how to ue it.But with proper instruction and guidelines, it can be a useful tool. First, two musts - never use in school and never take to bed. Beyond that, you need to set limits and customize its use. Help them learn appropriate social norms in use.

Does the clean kid manual work for kids with encopresis?

Talk to a specialist: Encopresis can be an especially trying and difficult disorder to treat. The specialists in treating it usually are either behavioral and developmental pediatricians or pediatric GI doctors. They will be familiar with various approaches, probably including the clean kid manual. You need to have someone you trust with whom you can work towards a longterm solution.

What happens if you can't swollow pills as a little kid?

Nothing: It is quite normal for children to have trouble swallowing pills. There are usually liquid alternatives.Eventually most children will swallow a pill....It certainly makes treating with medicines easier.
