Mothers Day Activities For Kindergarten Kids
Yes. Play-dates : allow you to monitor your child's peer interactions & teach age-appropriate pro-social & coping skills in a variety of settings. Tell your child what behaviors you expect, the rewards for complying & the consequences for non-compliance. If the kids squabble, calmly separate them or remove what they're squabbling about without blaming either one. Neurotypical 3-tear-olds have a preferred friend. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Should grandparents take over parenting for children whose biological parents cannot care for them? @drpam
It depends: There are so many factors that may affect the decision. It depends on the health of the grandparents. If it happens, looking to get support from others in the family is very important. The age of the children may also be a factor. This is a long-term commitment. Many times the grandparents can be stressed. Making sure there is adequate financial support is also important. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How can kids be affected by divorce? Kids ages are 4 years old...Boy...And one year and 3 months girl...

3years old daughter active&talkative. Take only milk bottle&fruits. Have conflicts n mind .didnt stay at school. Much attached Wid parents how improve?
Milestones: It is sometimes ok to be attached to parents but still you need to work on her diet and relationships. At first you need to offer diversity of food because she needs to grow healthy and milk is not enough. Offer first the family food and then offer the milk. Initially work on acceptance of food then the next step is to male her quit bottles. Then make her meet and play with other kids her age ...Read more
Age 23,anxiety at college,parents still care like a 2 years old kid,My family members respect me even elders,was at bad school,not ok in social,cause?
Counseling: Report to the campus counseling center. Depression in college is very common because of all the changes that ollege students have to go through adjusting from the impact of moving from their small towns or big cities or wherever else to college life, and stepping toward autonomy. It often represents too much change into short period of time. Counseling likely will be of benefit. ...Read more
Varies: Unless you are dealing with a very obese child or a child that is failing to thrive, you are not generally going to count carbs in this age group. Rather, concentrate on providing a good, well balanced diet with some fruits, lots of vegetables, whole grains and lean meats. If you are doing this, and your child is a healthy weight and growing appropriately, then the carb count is good. ...Read more
Yes: Well, it depends on the age of the child and whether they were close to the grandparent. If they didn't really know them, or are very young (too young to really understand) then no. However, children are oddly very accepting of life rituals, and they help the child come to grips with major life changes and move on. Be ready for a lot of questions though, and be honest. ...Read more

My 2yr old is in a small family daycare we love,. His language &social skills are advanced. Does he need preschool or can we wait until pre-k?
Need? No...: It sounds like your son is in a loving environment. Children his age (and older) learn through play and connection. He doesn't "need" preschool. Read to him, talk to him, explain things to him, and most of all have fun! I bet he is already getting those things at the family daycare. My vote - if you are happy where he is there is no need to change. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
My3weeks old daugther cries during brestfeeding(she drinks 5-6 times and cries than again).I use nipple shield.She has several bowel movements per day?
See her doctor: Check with her doctor to make sure there is no physical problem causing this. A common cause is nasal obstruction or congestion which doesn't allow the baby to breathe well while breast feeding. If you hear mucous in her nose, use saline nose drops and a bulb suction to remove it. Also, make sure that your breast tissue is pulled back so she can breathe while nursing. ...Read more
After how many days is it safe for my child to attend school without being contagious to others? ( older school going child )
Simple answer: 24hrs: The common advice and the policy in most schools is 24 hrs without fever. However, the truth is that with some viruses, one can continue to shed virus particles for longer.

One of the mothers in our group does not vaccinate her children. Should i avoid my children being around her children?
Should consider it: This mom , apparently, is more than happy to allow her kids to be open to diseases such as measles, mumps and pertussis(whooping cough) if exposed. This increases the risk for your kids.These infections have been on the increase in your part of the country, partially due to people like your friend.Express your fears and encourage her to do the responsible thing. ...Read more

My daughter 4 mo will only take 4oz at every feeding 7 times a day. 3 1/2 oz if fed baby food too. Should she be eating more? She weighs 14lbs 11 oz.
28-32oz a day is ok: The total daily intake is average and her weight sounds good, unless she was a really big baby at birth.. Many babies this age prefer a larger quantity and fewer bottles. If feedings take a long time, check the nipple flow. Also, some babies spit up if they take too much at a time, or they just prefer to be "grazers.". ...Read more
3.5yr old boy @ 27lbs and a 5% for height. 3pediasures/day, struggles but eats & sleeps fairly well . Small parents: mom5'1" & dad 5'6". Is he ok?
Get excited: Help your child get excited about this next big step. In the month before attending school put a little more structure into their day with some time for arts and crafts, reading books, quiet time, practice writing name, etc. This will help prepare them for some of the activities kindergarten will have. If possible figure out what friends will be in their class and schedule a couple play dates. ...Read more
Normal, but: It is stressful to parent and kindergarten represents a separation where you have little control of the variables involved. Accept that you have done your best in the past to prepare the kid. Proper vaccines protect against the worst issues. The kid also has some experience with germs, building an immune system from past colds and other issues. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Does writing letters backward mean my child has dyslexia? My daughter is in kindergarten and is learning to write. She often writes letters backward, and mixes up words with similar spellings. Does this mean she has dyslexia?
It : It is completely normal for a young child to reverse letters when first learning how to write - it is not an indicator of dyslexia. Many kids will continue to confuse b's and d's, q's and p's, well into first and even second grade. The same is true for confusing similar spellings of words. I've attached an article that talks about dyslexia and what to look for. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Doubtful: A sexual encounter between kindergarten aged children, over 12 years ago, would in all likelihood not cause any HIV worries. If you feel otherwise saddened or are "mentally scarred" from this childhood event, be sure to discuss with your dr. And get the appropriate counseling and treatment. Best wishes. ...Read more

How old does a child have to be to have otoplasty? My 5-year old daughter's ears are much too big, and the kids in her kindergarten class have started teasing her. Is she too young to have otoplasty?
Showing emotions is it wrong at a certain age? Is it weird for a 14 year old girl to still hold her mother's hand. She is a very loving child and is always telling me she loves me, hugs and kisses me goodnite and goodbye. She has done this from day one.
