What causes a child 4 yrs old to not understand simple questions like "how did you hurt your leg." i asked my daughter thus & her reply didn't match.?

Age: Your 4 year old has a short memory like most kids. Often kids wont remember the incident b/c it was not important enough to them at the time. Also they often get lower leg bruises so another bump to the leg doesnt seem memorable. If your daughter does not understand other questions then consult pediatrician about ?

Why is it taking so long to get an answer from someone? Asked a question a number of hours ago and still have no reply. Did i not do something correct? Should i ask again or wait somemore?

As : As usual, dr. Fowler is right on with her answer. At the moment, i'm between patients myself witting a quick response. I actually never heard of this site until a few days ago, and i think it's going to take time before more doctors are aware of this and participate in answering questions. I also think a lot of doctors tend to only look at their area of practice or interest, not every single question that's posted.

I also don't have any means by which to cross-reference your original question, so i can't give you any advice. Perhaps you should re-post your question so it appears again, so doctors who might have missed it but were willing to post an answer can get another crack at it. ...Read more
