Can younger generations learn about preventive health, not just the elderly or infirmed, when their grandparents live with them?

Can younger generations learn about preventive health, not just the elderly or infirmed, when their grandparents live with them?

It depends: It depends on the grandparents' knowledge of healthy eating. I see many seniors who are misinformed about what comprises a healthy diet and over rely on nutritional supplements. Age does not always guarantee wisdom and knowledge. If the senior is in good health, is not overweight, stays physically active, and takes few medications and supplements, they are probably a more reliable source. ...Read more

Not necessarily: I am a neurologist and to my knowledge your description of things is not sufficient to diagnose Asperger syndrome though certainly some features may be present. Other things should also be looked at and ruled out. I would be happy to help direct you in this regard. Write me-www.healthtap.com/DR-Saghafi ...Read more

You can request a new iep at any time, which may include looking at private school options if child not recieving adequate care. If needed, seek a lawyer specializing in this area. ...Read more

You : You should give your child's doctor a call and ask for a referral to a child psychologist, psychiatrist or behavioral specialist. You are not alone in dealing with your son's behavior (i have had many parents come to me with similar situations and concerns to yours). A behavioral specialist can help find better ways for your son to express his feelings and for your family to cope with his outbursts. They may be able to suggest new ways of dealing with his behavior. There will probably not be any quick fixes, but with continual therapy and consistent parenting, he will improve over time. Good luck! ...Read more

Should a parent share their abusive past with their children to help explain his/her emotional problem?

Should a parent share their abusive past with their children to help explain his/her emotional problem?

Depends: This depends on several factors related to the current situation. The parent would need to examine his/her motives for sharing such information. The appropriateness of this would also be impacted by the age and/or maturity level of the children. I would suggest discussing the matter with a therapist before making a decision about this. Such a disclosure could be helpful, but there are risks. ...Read more
