Im worried Ive spend too much time caretaking my mother. How much time should you spend on this and how much on yourself?

Im worried Ive spend too much time caretaking my mother. How much time should you spend on this and how much on yourself?

As I'm sure you know: this answer would be different for every daughter and mother. How much care your mother actually NEEDS (not just wants) is key: is she disabled, has special needs? And what are your circumstances? Do you work outside the home full time, care for children at home, etc? Communicating to your mother that you care deeply but have other responsibilities will be key as will identifying other caregivers. ...Read more

Is there anything we need to do to prepare for our son losing his baby teeth? He just turned five, and i guess the time is not too far away. I remember when i was little i was scared of having them pulled, and would let them stay in my mouth far too long.

Is there anything we need to do to prepare for our son losing his baby teeth? He just turned five, and i guess the time is not too far away. I remember when i was little i was scared of having them pulled, and would let them stay in my mouth far too long.

Kids : Kids are familiar with growing out of their shoes and their clothes and putting them aside to make room for bigger ones. It shoud be easy for your child to understand that he is outgrowing his baby teeth and that they should be put aside to make room for the bigger, more grown up ones. The tooth fairy thing makes it more fun and something to look forward to. Check the children's section at your local library or book store for one of the many excellent books on the subject geared for 5 year olds. ...Read more

What to do if every day at the computer too much radiation, the skin is now poor, how to do it?

The flat screen: monitors used today give off no radiation. The "picture tube" monitors gave off less than you got from spending the same amount of time in front of a sunny window. If you feel your skin is unhealthy, schedule a visit with your dermatologist. Most of them can give you some fabulous beauty products for your skin. ...Read more

When do you know it's time to put your parent into a home? I don't want to but his wife is talking about it. I am a HCA and prepared to help as much

When do you know it's time to put your parent into a home? I don't want to but his wife is talking about it. I am a HCA and prepared to help as much

Difficult: There's as you might be aware a distinction between a patient needing that level of care (e.g. due to health needing help can't be provided at home by relatives or professional carers) vs a person's choice (can't override unless they are mentally incompetent). Suggest see your GP to discuss a referral for needs assessment. This will establish whether needs rest home care. ...Read more

Is it true that some women don't know they are pregnant until they go into labor? If yes, why & how? Or am I spending too much time on internet Thanks

Is it true that some women don't know they are pregnant until they go into labor? If yes, why & how? Or am I spending too much time on internet Thanks

Too much internet: Although the internet contains a wealth of information and provides a valuable resource, it always contains a lot of junk. It is important to be careful to maintain some healthy scepticism and be aware of sources. I have actually delivered babies to women who denied ever knowing they were pregnant. Although it is doubtful, there is no way to prove differently. Denial can be very powerful. ...Read more

How do I know if my toddler is having too much protein?

How do I know if my toddler is having too much protein?

No too much protein: I don't believe that a toddler eats too much protein on his own. Unless he has kidney disease, any amount of protein the child can eat is fine. I would like to know what is your real concern. Is the child drinking too much milk? That would be a source of concern, because it may lead to iron deficiency. If he eats too much cheeze, that is not a reason for a concern. ...Read more
