Wait several years after settling on the design. Your love is great. Let it keep growing and perhaps developing into an even deeper expressin for body art. I have three tattoos and urge everyone to wait a long time. When the day comes that is right for you, you will know it

Any would do: A rhythm pattern is just a graphic created by electrical impulses going into a machine. A kids pattern varies with the heart leads a is continuously changing. If you copy a pattern from a book your kid will have the same pattern at some point. These patterns are not like a lock of hair from their first haircut, they are fleeting.

Is there a support group for children of drug-addicted parents?

1 doctor answer3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Jeffrey Roth
Addiction Medicine 43 years experience
Yes: If either parent uses alcohol, the most well developed support group for this purpose is al-anon. If the addiction is to drugs, and no alcohol is involved, the less well developed support group nar-anon would be the best choice. If nar-anon is not available, codependents anonymous would also be useful.

Does having a slow heart beat cause dizziness?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. William Goldie
Pediatric Neurology 48 years experience
Poor blood flow: The balance centers of the brain depend on good blood flow to the brain. If the heart is beating slowly or is not pumping enough blood into the brain, you will feel dizzy. First is to lie down so that the blood flow does not have to go uphill. Next is to lift the legs to be sure enough blood is getting into the heart. If the brain does not get enough blood flow, you can pass out and fall.

Can I postpone vaccines for my child to lower the risk of autism?

Dr. Kevin Passer
Child Psychiatry 35 years experience
Not a good idea: In less there is an actual reason to not have vaccinations, like for example, you have another child who had some sort of severe reaction following vaccinations, it is not a good idea to avoid vaccinating children at the appropriate ages. In order to maintain what is known as: herd immunity, the vaccination rate in the general population needs to be 95%. Vaccinations save lives.

How early must I teach my child healthy eating habits and how do I teach little ones?

3 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Lisa Saponaro
Clinical Psychology 18 years experience
Before they are born: Teaching your child healthy eating starts with our own healthy eating. Society provides a regular message to children that encourages eating unhealthy foods. Children's tv is littered with advertisements for sugary cereals and beverages and we have a growing rate of obesity among toddlers. Parents in today's society will have to work hard to provide healthy food messages, modeling is the key.
