My 6 year old fell off the trampoline about 3 hours ago and was screaming horribly while holding her crotch. I did the regular "mommy" boo boo fixes and she quit crying for awhile and then went to her room. Next thing I know she was crying in the bathro

I: I hope this issue has been resolved by now. For the future or for anyone reading this post whenever your child "screams horribly" and has persistent bleeding, especially from the genitals, a medical evaluation is in order. A visit to the urgent care or er is appropriate. At minimum a hymen tear is likely, which is not an emergency, however a more serious injury like a vaginal or urethral tear needs to be ruled out. If these are found a minor surgical procedure may be in order.
I hope your daughter is better. Take care. ...Read more

Should I be concerned about very low BP in a 6 year old?

Should I be concerned about very low BP in a 6 year old?

To answer that, I: Would need to know what the actual BP is. BP's in children are often/almost always lower than the normal adult range. So, what you may be thinking is a "low BP, " may in fact be normal for a 6 year old. If the BP was low for a child, they would probably have symptoms, such as lightheadedness, weakness and wouldn't feel well. If you want more detail, please re-ask your question with the actual BP#. ...Read more

Motivation: Getting into a battle is going to be counterproductive, but finding a motivating tool can be helpful; something that the child will find that will be beneficial to his life. If it is a matter of fear slowly desensitize the child by gradually making him less dependent on training wheels while you are right next to him, finally letting go. ...Read more
