When should I talk to my child about sex?

When should I talk to my child about sex?

When they are ready: When they start to ask questions, it's time to answer them. One technique is to answer exactly what they ask, but don't elaborate. On the other hand, tell the truth. If they are asking very specific questions, you need to answer them very specifically or they will ask somebody else when you are not around. Saying you are not old enough to ask that is just going to make them even more curious. ...Read more

5 yr old behavior : It is not easy to reason with a 5 yr old, you can try rewarding & praizing him for good behavior & when he is not behaving you can try time out, take away his favorite toys , no TV, no vedeo games Until he listens. Make sure you always show your love & never use verbal or physical punishment. Good luck. ...Read more

Don't pre-judge: If you want your dr to take you seriously, you have to present yourself seriously. If you come at it with a chip on your shoulder, it will suggest to the dr there may be something wrong with the info you are relating and you will do yourself in. Keep an open mind & be honest and direct. ...Read more

I hear a swishing noise when people talk to me, and a really bad swishing noise when I listen to music. Tried cleaning ears, doesn't help and hurts.?

I hear a swishing noise when people talk to me, and a really bad swishing noise when I listen to music. Tried cleaning ears, doesn't help and hurts.?

Don't clean ears: I would be concerned that at age 19, you have listened to very loud music that may have injured part of your inner ear. Cleaning the ears should never be performed by you. You can injure the canal skin or even the ear drum. Furthermore swishing in the ear probably is not related to your ear canal. You need a hearing test to rule out a high pitch loss. Also noises in the ear are not painful. ...Read more

My Son is 2 year old he does not listen his name and does not talk. He just point his fingers for any demand. He does speak rymes and repeat words?

See your doctor: by age 2, kids should have about a 20 word vocab and be starting to make 2 word phrases such as "mommy go" or"dada up". It is good that he is pointing to communicate and that he repeats words, but I would as his doctor to evaluate his development more formally with a screening tool. You may also want to have his hearing evaluated. ...Read more
