Can everyone learn something difficult at a fast rate only they can understand? For example, learning complicated scientific equations at a fast pace.

No: Different people learn different things at different speeds. I leaned pathology and keyboard rapidly, and learned swimming and skydiving much slower than other people. There are efficient and inefficient ways to learn stuff, but if somebody is offering you a wishful-thinking "magic learning" system to master quantum physics overnight, call your district attorney. ...Read more

Is it safe for kids to play on old playground equipment like high slides?

Is it safe for kids to play on old playground equipment like high slides?

Safety is relative: Kids benefit from outside activity and old playground equipment is safe in general when used appropriately. Newer construction often focuses on making ground surfaces more fall friendly, and use at certain times of the day/temperatures can have a significant burn risk on metal equipment. Proper supervision is important to help kids get the best and safest use out of such equipment. ...Read more

They are handing out child stress kits to parents so they wont abuse their kids. Toys and candy. How (and who) would that help?

Who has the stress?: If the kids are stressed, then a kit with appropriate toys and activities might help them. If the parents are stressed, then giving the kids something to do might help briefly.

How do you calm school kids in lockdown?

How do you calm school kids in lockdown?

Some ideas: Staying calm yourself probably will help them. The unknown can provoke anxiety, so depending upon their age you may want to explain the situation, and the steps being taken to address the situation. Don't just describe the problem, also describe the solution. Again, depending upon their age, information given in a realistic, honest, yet hopeful manner may help them stay calm. ...Read more

Hi, can brain training web games (eg lumosity.Com) be harmful to kids above 3 years? Kids seem to love playing it - but is there any side-effect?

Hi, 
can brain training web games (eg lumosity.Com) be harmful to kids above 3 years? Kids seem to love playing it - but is there any side-effect?

Above three?: Do you mean above or below the age of three? Recent studies suggest that children under the age of two, really do not benefit from any video electronics. They can be too overstimulating. All children's tv programming should be limited to no more than one hour per day. I do not believe in having a tv in a child's room. You are not doing your kids a favor by exposing them too early to media. ...Read more

Will signing up my child for martial arts lessons give him more discipline?

Absolutely!: I'm glad you posted this question...Having studied martial arts myself and having enrolled my son in the study as well. 'studying' imparts not only self-discipline but confidence and self esteem as well; and can be great in potentially dealing with "bullies". The only warning would be the demeanor of the sensei(or teacher); your child needs to 'fit' with him/her so meet with first and decide. ...Read more

That said, one should never exceed the comfort zone suggested by responsible medical advice. ...Read more
