What do you suggest if my child is 9 months and I really wanna get her ears pierced. is it bad?

What do you suggest if my child is 9 months and I really wanna get her ears pierced. is it bad?

Not bad: As long as you have the procedure performed at a reputable facility, your baby's vaccines are up to date, and you perform proper cleaning as instructed, you should be safe to have the piercing performed. Using the surgical steel posts ( more expensive but very 'worth it') will reduce the possibility of allergic reactions. Have fun! ...Read more

Early treatment: It is important to recognize the mood swings early. Studies show that the more episodes you have the more frequent and the more severe the episodes become. Talk to a psychiatrist who can help you decide how prone to the illness you may be. Getting and staying on a mood stabilizer will dramatically effect your level of functioning and greatly diminish the severity and frequency of episodes. ...Read more

I have a 2 yr. old child she fell and her part on her eyebrow is swollen is that bad why do people swell wen get hurt somewhere?

I have a 2 yr. old child she fell and her part on her eyebrow is swollen is that bad why do people swell wen get hurt somewhere?

Eyebrow swollen : When tissues are hurt, by trauma, infection or other causes, they swell, redden and pain. That is the body's natural first defense to being injured and is called inflammation. An ice pack over the injured area is a good idea at this point to reduce the swelling. If there was no loss of consciousness, break in skin, normal gait, no confusion, it is probably OK to use local ice and Acetaminophen ...Read more

My three year old is not listening, throwing tantrums, how do I get her to listen. I don't want to spank, i feel bad when i yell or put in corner?

Use time-out: Time-out is a safe, effective way to ignore behaviors, which makes them go away.1-2-3 magic & " little people" teach you how to do "walk, don't talk" time-out effectively. Behaviors get worse before they go away, as a test to see if she can get you to engage. Crying does no psychological harm. Praise her often for behaviors you want. Yelling/spanking both reinforce behaviors & teach aggression. ...Read more

How do I stop my parent with alzheimer's from driving? My mom has alzheimer's and is pretty forgetful. I've noticed her driving seems to be a lot worse and sometimes she gets lost. I really don't think she should be on the road, so how do I get her to vol

This : This is going to be a tough struggle. If she already has alzheimer's, and you have noticed problems, it is probably time to take the car away. She will not like this decision, as it is one of her last vestiges of independence. But the decision needs to be made before she gets in an accident (many times it takes a broken fender or mailbox to convince somebody). I would suggest you advise her doctor of the problem privately, then have an "intervention" at an office visit. That way the doctor can be the bad guy, and you will agree. Some states have driver's training tests (occupational therapists sometimes do this) that might prove to her that she is impaired. But usually the doctor visit is enough. ...Read more

Good questions: You are the only one who can know if it is a good idea to go back to your 1st love. Some questions: why would you want to go back to her if you know that she will cheat on you etc?
