Do kids have right to see donor if parent says no?

Usually no.: Extensive information (geographic, health, genetic) is usually given to recipients re: donor eggs/sperm.

Is it right that a parent refuses their child to see his grandparents? What emotional effect will this have on the child?

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

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 more

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

Stomach pain: Until your parents can take to the gastroentrologist, try to eat small frequent healthy bland diet, avoid spicy, fried, fatty & fast food, avoid caffeine, you can try OTC antiacids such as zantac, (ranitidine) prilosec & so on. I hope you feel better soon. Good luck. ...Read more

Is it legal for a parent to slap his child in the u.S.?

Is it legal for a parent to slap his child in the u.S.?

Yes but: Each culture defines what its usual forms of acceptable parenting include.

In fact, i think it is common for close relatives with the correct tissue match to donate to other relatives. ...Read more
