How do you grieve the loss of someone who sits across the table from you and sleeps beside you every night?

How do you grieve the loss of someone who sits across the table from you and sleeps beside you every night?

Bless you!: Greiving is painful. It takes time to work through a loss. You need to seek help from others, accept help from others, try to remove yourself from painful places and situations as much as possible, explore new avenues and outlets, talk, talk and then talk about it. Seek companionship to help with lonliness, seek spiritual insight, seek counselling and be introspective about the situation & loss. ...Read more

Will doing workouts daily, leads to stiff neck, I am suffering from it frequently.
Please let me know the criticality & tips to over come the same.

Don't overdo things: I don't know your overall state of conditioning or how fast you are trying to push from one level to the next in terms of weight training or exercise capacitation. However, be careful with the neck. It can be much more easily sprained than other parts of the body with much less in terms of heavy loads. Stretch well, work up SLOWLY (over period of weeks or even months) increasing load on the neck ...Read more

My family is on the go all the time, how can we eat healthfully when we are going or sleeping...?

Food Food Everywhere: I have to assume you are in the U.S. And in the U.S. there is virtually always access to healthy food. And if not, there's a market around. It may be necessary to break from the common concepts of at-the-table meals. But you can go to a market and find healthy food and eat it at the motel or in the car or at a park bench. And most restaurants these days have decent salads and fresh fish, etc. ...Read more

Do you think the amount of tv a child watches can cause him to gain weight?

Do you think the amount of tv a child watches can cause him to gain weight?

Yes: Most pediatricians would recommend no tv or videos at all under age two. I personally don't recommend any tv for school age children during the school week (it is a distraction from homework and reading). There is a strong link between watching tv/playing video games and gaining weight. On weekends 1-2 hours a day is probably ok. ...Read more

What is the best way to teach a 3yo child to sleep in his bed and not to move to parents bed every night?

What is the best way to teach a 3yo child to sleep in his bed and not to move to parents bed every night?

Persistence: A 3 year old can wear a parent out on anything - they have nothing better to do with their life, so if they want something (to sleep in your bed) they usually have much more persistance and stamina to hold out than you do. When you decide enough is enough, you have to commit to never letting them come into your bed - even if it means you have to get up 100 times a night to put them back in theirs! ...Read more

What is the best thing to do to prevent hairs to fall? And what can we do for them to grow back?

Stay healthy: The best way to grow hair naturally is to stay healthy: regular exercises and eating a well-balanced diet to provide your body with the necessary nutrients to support growth and repair. Artificially grown hair such as that by use of rogaine (minoxidil) etc...Is not a lasting and healthy effect. Stimulate/massage your scalp regularly to keep a good blood supply. There isn't much else you can do. Good luck. ...Read more

How do you tell a teen what to do? Demand or plant the seed and let it grow?

Plant seeds...: You can "tell" a teen anything til you are blue in the face....Demanding seldom works...Does it work for you?

In our house it was simple- anything immoral, illegal, or unsafe was simply not tolerated and there were swift consequences. ...Read more
