My child is 6 years old and still wets the bed.  I want to know how to stop it.?

Talk to your doctor.: Many 6-year-olds still wet the bed. First step: see your doc for a urine test to make sure the bedwetting isn't due to a more serious problem.

As a child i was diagnosed as a strep carrier. Every year i get sick with swollen tonsils. But i don't get white splotches. I want it to stop.

Tonsillitis: Tonsils are there as part of your immune system to help protect against upper respiratory infections. Sometimes they are overwhelmed and become ineffective and more of a hindrance than a benefit, but you do not fit in that category. Without knowing the exact cause of the tonsillar inflammation it is difficult to advise. Would check with an ENT doctor and have them examine you when this occurs. ...Read more

What happens to a 3year old girl if she has her legs, arms, butt cheeps, betty, and back shaved every week she is with her dad every week and comes back shaved we can not get him to stop it and child services says its not harmful intent

What happens to a 3year old girl if she has her legs, arms, butt cheeps, betty, and back shaved every week she is with her dad every week and comes back shaved we can not get him to stop it and child services says its not harmful intent

I would call the DA: If what you are saying is correct, I think the folks at your child services are a bit incompetent.There is no reason for a dad to shave his daughter unless it is a fetish and or a voyeuristic event bordering on child sexual abuse. I would call and speak to the child sexual trauma unit at your DA's office. ...Read more

Every morning I get out of bed and my knees and ankles pop constantly. Is that good or bad? Should I stop popping them?

Every morning I get out of bed and my knees and ankles pop constantly. Is that good or bad? Should I stop popping them?

No pain, no problem: We used to think that popping our knuckles, neck, back etc.. Caused arthritis. However, there is no evidence of causal relationship has been found until this time. It is indeed a habit and once formed, the joints "feel the need to pop" intermittently. As long as it does not cause pain while doing it..Enjoy the popping. If u don't like to hear the pop, don't do it..It will stop with time. Good luck. ...Read more
