Whenever they can!: PE time has been eroded from many public schools and it's a real shame! Being physically active and engaging in creative play is beneficial to a child. I believe all children should have structured quality recess/PE appropriate for their age. It actually helps them be better students! http://www.webmd.com/parenting/raising-fit-kids/move/parents-pe-questions?page=1 ...Read more
Not only did I not: Learn about female genital mutilation in school but it was never mentioned in medical school, internship or residency. I received hundreds of hours in training in child sexual abuse - and it was never brought up there either. Kind of amazing considering that 140 million females (as young as a day old) have had their genitals mutilated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
Depends: Wills provide a legal way to pass on personal assets according to the wishes and hopes of the maker of the will. A will is unnecessary until there are a moderate amount of assets to be passed on. This is especially important if there are children or a spouse. In this age group, the major cause of death is accidental as illness in this age group almost always allows time to make a will. ...Read more
SUre they can!: Kids in foster care can do anything they want to do. It may take a bit more planning and they need to be moe aware of all the help available to them through their school district and the community. I've cared for foster kids who have gone on to be doctors, lawyers, teachers. It may be a little bit more challenging, but ask the help of school guidance counselor to help you through! ...Read more
Depends on situation: The rather routine adult immunizations include a yearly flu shot, a tetanus shot every 10 years and other specific vaccines based on age or situation. The preferred tetanus shot for a booster now boosts whooping cough & diphtheria & is known as the tdap.

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
Preterm baby 29week gestational age his age know 25days corected age 32weekand4days his haemoglobin 11, 3gm can I start ferrous drops at this age?
Sure!: Term babies have enough iron stores from mom that usually do not need iron supplementation. Premature babies, however, have much lower stores and need extra iron to prevent what is called 'anemia of prematurity.' this is also a common age to develop a normal drop in hemoglobin, which is usually not harmful. Talk to your doctor to find out how much iron should be added, since it is based on weight. ...Read more
Controversial: Fetuses can recognize maternal voices (see kisilevsky, '03), but more complicated and verbally based memories probably do not develop until at least 3 or 4. Other emotional memories may well develop before age 3 that have to do with a sense of security/safety. Major problem is that it is hard to confirm adult reports of early childhood memories that are uncontaminated by later discussion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Body-20/mind...4ever: Bones generally stop elongating mid-late teens, and fuse by early 20's. Number of brain cells may grow up to younger age, but then set 4 life (like height); that # is thought to be 100b, but this may be exaggerated & some evidence shows it may be @14b (humans are egocentric, this # is same as baboons). But the mind never stops growing--that's why what I do is entitled 'practice'. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends on meaning: I encourage my patients to find physical activities that they can be engaged in for a lifetime. The idea of a workout implies something different. The aap & certified trainer groups recommend no power lifting until the final stage of physical maturity.Cardio workouts (like soccer, jogging) are proper anytime as is instruction in proper weight training by a knowledgable trainer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
