Is It Okay For Kids To See Parents Naked
Usually no.: Extensive information (geographic, health, genetic) is usually given to recipients re: donor eggs/sperm. A contract should have been made if the donor that addresses expectations of both parties with respect to future contact or long term expectation of anonymity. With technology and social media, it is more difficult for parents to place limitations on their kids from seeking out their donor(s). ...Read more
Is it right that a parent refuses their child to see his grandparents? What emotional effect will this have on the child?
In an ideal world: In an ideal world we would all "get along" and children benefit greatly from having contact with all members of a healthy extended family. When we fall short of that ideal, it's important to look deeper at family dynamics, starting with our own roles. A family therapist can be extremely helpful in starting a healing process. It can help the whole family, especially those children. ...Read more
Feelings of intense guilt over my parenting of child when young whenever I see things associated with childhood?
Counseling.: I'm sorry you're having these feelings. If it's just associated with a specific area of your life (parenting a child), and not affecting your sleep, appetite or having feelings of guilt or sadness in other areas of your life, then this is something best be explored by a counselor or therapist, and not a doctor at this point. Your doctor may have good recommendations of counselors though. ...Read more
Is an underbite harder to fix with braces than an overbite? I've always had an underbite, but my parents never took me to see an orthodontist as a kid. Now that i'm an adult, i would like to get this corrected with braces. I'm just wondering if it's harde
Many : Many underbites have a skeletal component, meaning that the jaws as well as the teeth are mal aligned. In those cases, simply aligning the teeth will not correct the problem. However, some underbites, sometimes call pseudo-class iii malocclusions, do not have a skeletal component and can be corrected very nicely with braces alone. Your orthodontist can do a simple analysis to diagnose your underbite and advise a treatment plan. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers

Why do I have bad stomach pain after every meal? I see a GI at a children's hospital for EoE but can't see her about this b/c parents don't have time
Yes but: Each culture defines what its usual forms of acceptable parenting include. Within the American culture, you may be carted off to jail for child endangerment if your neighbor reports this kind of "parenting". Less so if you slapped the kids rear end, but you cross the wrong taboo here and you will need a lawyer. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
It May Be: I think it depends on how well the tissue match test turns out for the donor kidney (the child) relative to the recipient (the parent). If there is not a good enough match, there can be problems with rejection. But otherwise, nothing else precludes someone from donating to a parent. In fact, i think it is common for close relatives with the correct tissue match to donate to other relatives. ...Read more
Depends: The staff dealing with the parent will generally include social workers & mental health nurses that are well aware of the needs of the extended family. Children of an impaired parent will be placed when possible with family members or may need temporary foster care. In my state the facility works with family services to identify & provide these services when needed. ...Read more
