Certainly no help: Whether or not this constitutes mental abuse is probably a matter of degree and definition. The obvious question is why this conversation was begun in the presence of the children, and how it degenerated into an argument. Neither party appears to be acting like thoughtful adults, and the children will certainly not benefit from observing and then potentially copying this behavior. ...Read more

Bullying happens in school, the work place, home, kids etc.. Is there a mental health diagnosis for why people bully others?
Nonspecific: Bullying can be a final common pathway of behavior for a wide variety of reasons. There is no specific psychiatric diagnosis that matches bullying. Certainly things in such a person's history -- like being mistreated or abused at home -- may be a factor. But it's not an excuse, and bullying must be stopped. If the bully has been through trauma, s/he needs help as well as firm limit-setting. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it acceptable to condescend your kids and and make them feel inferior.. Or is it more about teaching to respect each other rather than control them?
Not exactly: It is important to teach children boundaries and safety. Hopefully we do not have to teach them to be afraid. I prefer to use the term empower them with skill sets. Giving them facts that teach why they should not do something is important. Ex: many strangers are simply friends we haven't met yet and some strangers do not have our best interest at heart - check with parents before talking to them. ...Read more
I agree: I agree with dr elzako. I would add that your child should start seeing a pediatric dental specialist at age 1 for the same reasons that your child sees a pediatrician, rather than a gp. The pedodontist can asses growth and development and help you share in your child's oral hygiene for the best result. The pedodontist will also give you anti-cavity nutrition advice and monitor fluorides. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

We try to gauge sexuality education readiness through a longitudinal relationship built on trust and non-judgment. That said, earlier is better--if you think they might be ready soon, they probably already are! ...Read more
