When do you give responsibility for looking after their teeth to your kids?

When do you give responsibility for looking after their teeth to your kids?

Children: As a pediatric dentist, i recommend that parents brush and floss for thier children's teeth until the age of ten. Once the child reaches the age that they want to do it for themselves, you can have the child brush in the morning and you brush and floss at night.

Do I have to go to school to become counselor? I was tortured abused as kid have mental illnesses want to help other children to cope albanycsb.Org

Learn what works: I'm glad you want to help others cope. This is just now becoming a science. There are ways of talking to people in need of guidance that actually work. There are other strategies -- often adopted by well-meaning people -- that are likely to lead to disaster. You can want the best, but you must know what's going to work, or you may end up making mistakes that you'll deeply regret. School it is. ...Read more

Is it a good idea for parents to force their child to take music lessons?

Is it a good idea for parents to force their child to take music lessons?

Probably Not: I think this depends on how we define "forced". If the child seems to have some interest, but may be lacking the initial motivation, then a little prodding may be helpful. But completely forcing a child who has no interest will likely be non-beneficial. ...Read more

If they are on a pension, is it right for his parents to ask for compensation to babysit their grandkids?

If they are on a pension, is it right for his parents to ask for compensation to babysit their grandkids?

U can ask 4 anything: Often grandparents will be happy to babysit their grand kids for free--to some extent, but some people are not so lucky. Baby sitting service is expensive, because it is a lot of work. So, on/off, here/there babysitting is often offered as a freebee, but grandparents don't have to do this--not a law, just a common thing. Many don't ask for it, but they have the right to ask for $$$. Good luck. ...Read more

Do I need to go to special classes as a parent of a disabled child?

Do I need to go to special classes as a parent of a disabled child?

Might help: "need" is a loaded word, but many parents find it useful to gain specific knowledge about their child's disability, perhaps talk with other parents facing similar issues, and quite likely learning proven techniques for dealing with road blocks your child may face. Often, this is a learning process that will need refreshing as the child ages and new issues arise. ...Read more

If you had to teach human sexuality to children or adolescents in homeschool, what are some things thing ok if religious?

Be realIstic: A religious ovum is fertilized just as easily as an atheist ovum. A religious body is just as susceptible to STDs as an atheist body.
