Is it normal & psychologically healthy for children  to sleep in the same bed with a parent?

The AAP, in your: Hometown, has a healthy child app that addresses sleep issues. In many cultures, the "family bed" is a necessity. Infants who learn to fall asleep in their own beds by 1-4 months consolidate sleep & night-wake less.

Is it a mental/psychotic issue to be suscpitious about every single action of a person to the point of spying at all times? Can they be helped?

Paranoia: Yes, suspiciousness can reach psychotic proportions. Spying isn't diagnostic of any particular mental disorder, but a psychiatric evaluation could determine if one is present.

Is it okay to be on two anti psychotics at the same time?

Is it okay to be on two anti psychotics at the same time?

Yes in some cases: Only with an experienced physician, and only for a specific reason, should you combine two antipsychotics. In my practice, for patients with severe anxiety and psychosis due to dementia, seroquel (quetiapine) and Risperidone are used together. You just have to be more careful and be in very close contact with your physician. ...Read more

One of the meds dad is offered is 1mg lorazapam twice day. If we hold to the dosage schedule, he is in a stupor constantly. Not good! options?

Stop The Lorazepam: Your dad is ninety years old. This medication is the worst possible thing for him. The elderly often fall and break their hip and then could die from this complication. They are too groggy to realize how unsteady they are when they try to get up or walk. I would recommend a visit back with the doctor or getting a new expert in geriatric medicine. ...Read more

It is recommended that if you want to have a baby, it is better to have two and the preferable age difference is 20 -30 months. Is there the series of methods to create a happy and successful life for our only child?

Under a dozen: I am sure many old children might argue that they turned out pretty good so it isnt the same for everyone. Having 5 children of my own i see how they had to learn to life together, help each other, be patient with the ones who required that and learned to serve in a family. That was pretty great too. Each person has to decide that issue for themselves. You can wait and see if you still want anothe. ...Read more

Is it ok for grandparents to spoil kids with lots of candy at the holidays?

Is it ok for grandparents to spoil kids with lots of candy at the holidays?

Multiple layers: This is a more complex question than it might seem on the surface. As dr. Bergman indicated, grandparents often are exempted from some rules that parents impose, but it is also important that they not undermine parental authority.
