Attachment: Healthy attachments between a child and a parent are essential to raise healthy children. There is lots of research to back this up.

Active parenting: This style teaches you to give your child freedom with limits. The limits expand as the child shows more responsibility. Check out dr. Michael popkin's program at www. Activeparenting. Com. I used to teach the class to parents and found to be the best.

How does parenting style affect your childrens health?

How does parenting style affect your childrens health?

Go authoritative: Authoritative is typically the healthiest parenting style. This parenting style sets limits and provides direction while also remaining flexible and encouraing growth. Permissive, uninvolved, and authoritarian all have some down sides. These styles have been associated with poor eating, low self-esteem, over dependence, substance use and other negative behaviors.

If both parents have "attached" earlobes, can they have a child with "hanging" earlobes?

If both parents have "attached" earlobes, can they have a child with "hanging" earlobes?

Possibly: But apples tend to fall right next to the tree from which they were grown. If both parents have it, likely their kids will too.

Can you tell me how the birth of a child affect the parents life style and goals?

Can you tell me how the birth of a child affect the parents life style and goals?

Life-changer: Very interesting question that can take a whole book to answer. Children are the best gift life has to offer, they need both parents to be healthy, loved and available physically and emotionally. Most of the dysfunction we see in the USA is due to poor family communication and unhealthy dynamics. Children change life styles and goal priorities in many positive ways. Make them a priority, worth it

Calorie dense foods: The addition of calorie dense foods such as nuts, whole grain pastas, raisins, whole milk, pure fruit juices, butter, avocado, fatty fishes and complex carbohydrates is a healthy way to add more calories to your diet. Avoid sugary foods, sodas, chips and pills. Although they are indeed high calorie, they do not provide appropriate nutrition and are difficult for your body to process. Good luck

3years old daughter active&talkative. Take only milk bottle&fruits. Have conflicts n mind. Didn't stay at school. Much attached Wid parents how improve?

Milestones: It is sometimes ok to be attached to parents but still you need to work on her diet and relationships. At first you need to offer diversity of food because she needs to grow healthy and milk is not enough. Offer first the family food and then offer the milk. Initially work on acceptance of food then the next step is to male her quit bottles. Then make her meet and play with other kids her age

What are the best parenting books?

What are the best parenting books?

Mileage may vary: Well, who gets to decide? No one book works for everyone. Read a few pages in the middle of each book you see in a bookstore; if it seems to make sense, it may be worth trying. In particular, this book: http://www. Amazon. Com/caring-your-baby-young-child/dp/0553386301 should get you around most pitfalls.

How can I cope with my parent's death?

How can I cope with my parent's death?

Comfort and support: You can cope best by letting all of your thoughts and feelings be just as they are. There is not "getting over" a death, there is only deeply resting with everything that comes up. Losing a loved one is a very important moment in one's life and can bring about great changes if one does not "shut things down". Be gentle with yourself and seek psychological services to allow for growth from grief.

What are some tips for team parenting?

What are some tips for team parenting?

United front: It is critical to present as a united front. Have discussions in terms of parenting outside the ears of the children. It is ok to let the kids know you're talking and making decisions together as a "team" and teach the kids to wait for a team response when possible. Try to target a 1-2 behaviors at a time for improvement and decide how you will address and then be a consistent team!

It's depends: Daughters of mothers who are addicted and sons of fathers who are addicts have higher likelihood of inheriting a physiological predisposition to become addicted (about 50% chance). This is due to both nature and nurture.

Which parent determines the sex of a child?

Which parent determines the sex of a child?

Both and neither: Male chromosomes are xy, females are xx, so if conception is combining one from each, you might say that the male determines. However, the hormone balance, temperature and other factors in the mother's body influence whether xs or ys are favored. But, bottom line, none of this is under conscious control so really neither parent has control.

How can I decide whether to become a parent?

How can I decide whether to become a parent?

Tough question: Deciding to become a parent is one of life's most difficult questions. I suspect that there is never a "good time" to parent. Parenting requires time, money and patience. You can look to professional counseling, religious leader, friends and family for help with the decision. Ultimately, you must decide but we all have resources to help with tough choices in life. Use them, best wishes.
