Vertigo?: Many children get very dizzy at times without definite cause. Some are due to ear infections or ear fluid pressure. Other times it may happen because of spinning around.

This is usually benign but needs a good evaluation. ...Read more

Ringworm is actually not caused by a worm at all, but is caused by a fungus that lives on the skin called tinea. People can get a tinea infection from skin to skin contact with an infected person or pet or by sharing personal items such as towels, clothing, and combs.
Clotrimazole is the generic name for the over the counter cream that treats ringworm. Apply 2-3 times a day for a few weeks until the lesion disappears completely and then some. Keep it covered for the first day of treatment (or longer if you want to) to prevent spread. Your child will need to see his doctor for a stronger medication if the ringworm is on his scalp, continues to spread after treatment at home or if it doesn't get better after 4 weeks of treatment at home. ...Read more

Structure: It is not necessarily that kids are "lazy". It may be as simple as a schedule and expectations problem. Some kids are in so many activities they are burned out and have little time for anything else. Most kids nowadays live to be on a wireless device and that takes a chunk of time. Have clear expectations of your child and let him know what they are. Unplug the tv, limit the phone gaming time. ...Read more
