Do you think ill later have hassles if my 9 year old ignores me all the time?

Problem now: If you allow your child to "ignore" you at this young age, it seems you already have a problem that will only escalate if you do not establish parameters for acceptable behavior, expectations and consequences. ...Read more

What to do if I have a son nearly 12but boy are the hormones kicking in!!! how did you get through the teenage years?

Consistent: Talk to your child regularly, about school & home life. Make sure you set expectations and give him responsibilities. Set limits and discipline him regularly for inappropriate behaviors (by taking away privileges), but reward him for good behaviors. Explain to him that he's going through hormonal changes & that these feelings are ok, but inappropriate behavior is not. ...Read more

Discuss w/therapist: Hopefully you can discuss your feelings with other trusted adults in your life -- like parents, other family, etc. It's not uncommon for students to develop romantic feelings for teachers. Teachers need to maintain healthy boundaries with these relationships, while caring for & assisting the student in appropriate ways. Talking w/therapist can help you further work through this, & move on in life. ...Read more

My son and I are traveling so he can see friends he has not seen in a year. They assume we all will meet briefly. I think he is ashamed. What should I do?

My son and I are traveling so he can see friends he has not seen in a year. They assume we all will meet briefly. I think he is ashamed. What should I do?

Friends: I think its healthy for kids to have variety of friends given the flattening and globalization of our ever connected world today. As long as these friends are providing positive and growing environment vs. Negative one (illegal activity, bullying, etc.) then its perfectly normal. ...Read more

My 9 year old girl keeps looking at people when goes out with us ...I get so embarrased how could i teach her not to do so without embarrasing her too?

My 9 year old girl keeps looking at people when goes out with us ...I get so embarrased how could i teach her not to do so without embarrasing her too?

Talk with her before: Talk with her about this before going out of the home when it is just you two. This will not embarrass her nearly as much as doing this out in public. It is quite normal for a 9 year old to do what you are describing, and she is old enough to have a good conversation about the topic. ...Read more

What do you suggest if I am 19 yrs old had a fever of 108f. My skills are onnly with combat he also said fevers are hardder on you the older you get. That true?

What do you suggest if I am 19 yrs old had a fever of 108f. My skills are onnly with combat he also said fevers are hardder on you the older you get. That true?

No way: A fever of 108 F would kill you - your body's cells cannot sustain any function at that high of a body temperature. So check thermometer or how to read it, was it really 100.8? Anyway, fever is just a symptom and don't need to be "combated". All you NEED to do is look for cause of fever and then deal with that. Always drink plenty of water with fevers so you don't dehydrate. ...Read more

What to do if grandchild need flu shot to stay in school but is already sick? My grandchild need flu shot by the end of this month to stay in school but he is already sick what can I do time is running out. Didnt know he had to have one until after he was

What to do if grandchild need flu shot to stay in school but is already sick? My grandchild need flu shot by the end of this month to stay in school but he is already sick what can I do time is running out. Didnt know he had to have one until after he was

It : It depends on how sick your grandchild is. Most people with mild illnesses are perfectly able to get the flu shot. You should call your grandchild's doctor to see what their office policy is on immunization and illness. If they do not feel comfortable giving him the vaccine with his current illness, i'm sure that they would be happy to write a note to the school in that effect and then give him the immunization when he is well. ...Read more

I'm sixteen and I have had sex with a twenty three year old man more than once could I be pregnant and my parents know this guy really well and I don't want my parents to find out what we did how can I tell them and keep him out of jail,at the same time?

I'm sixteen and I have had sex with a twenty three year old man more than once could I be pregnant and my parents know this guy really well and I don't want my parents to find out what we did how can I tell them and keep him out of jail,at the same time?

Need info: You need information that we cannot provide. A urine pregnancy test can be found in many dollar stores and begins to show positive by the time you miss a period (although it may be falsely negative early in pregnancy).You need to find the "age of consent" which is a legal term.In some states it is 16 and the guy would not be in legal trouble. If pg, you won't be able to hide it long. ...Read more

Happy new year I have a friend that always saying his stomach don't feel will plus when he go do num 2 it watere what that mean?

Probably see doctor: Especially if it's lasted awhile he might do well to be examined and treat whatever the problem is. In any case, he needs to be very careful to drink lots of safe water to avoid dehydration. Also, try to be careful for your own health in case it is a contagious bug. Take care and be well. ...Read more

How can I tell if my child is getting dehydrated if he's been playing outside all day?

How can I tell if my child is getting dehydrated if he's been playing outside all day?

Color of face,thirst: If he has been outside all day and not been drinking he is behind on his fluids. Urine color will be dark yellow if he is slightly dry. He can be red faced and tired as well. It is helpful to educate him if he is 8 or over to drink often and younger to offer fluids regularly. He should be thirsty as well if he has not been drinking enough. ...Read more

Prurigo Nodularis: The scar was formed from repeated scratching. Sometimes injecting a potent cortisone preparation (kenalog (triamcinolone) being most commonly used) may reduce the size. If this didn't work, then you may consult a dermatologist or plastic surgeon to get it removed. The condition is known as prurigo nodularis. ...Read more
