Have your surgeon tell you what he/she likes to do. ...Read more

Should you hold back your kids to get a leg up on the competition for college scholarships?

Should you hold back your kids to get a leg up on the competition for college scholarships?

No: Can you please clarify is this sports related scholarship or an academic one? Either way holding one back for this reason alone does not seem like a good idea. I would include my child in this decision as the child is the one who ultimately pays the price. The stress may not be worth it especially to the child. I assume we are discussing a teenager in this question... ...Read more

Can I give melatonin to my child for a 16 hr plane ride?  Will it work?

Age of child: Melatonin can help resolve jet lag so yes you could give it to a child. I would recommend giving to a child older than 5.Generally though, Benadryl (diphenhydramine) works well to help with sleep (unless you noes your child does not tolerate it well).

How to train for triathlons?

Read up and plan: Check out the books in the bookstore. Triathlon training by michael finch and the triathlete's training bible by joe friel are good ones.

Start slowly, build up and follow the plan. Race the way you train. ...Read more
