Depends: A twelve year old who weighs 70lb is going to have a very different calorie requirement than one who weights 150lbs. Additionally, it will be different for girls than for boys.

Common cold: Benadryl liquid is good for both cough and cold in young children. Adjust dosage according to your child's weight per instruction from drug company.

High fever should be treated with Motrin or tylenol (acetaminophen) to avoid seizure from overheating of the brain! ...Read more

My child is 12 yrs old. She took 6tsps of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) with me knowing. What do I need to do?

Should be ok: Depending on her size, the 6 tsp of benadryl (diphenhydramine) is a mild to moderate overdose. Give lots of fluids to dilute things if it is a recent dosage.

My boyfriend says he was been autistic when he was a child and recover when his 12 yrs old. Is this sure that I can live normal life with him?

My boyfriend says he was been autistic when he was a child and recover when his 12 yrs old. Is this sure that I can live normal life with him?

Labels can be wrong: I have found over time that some carry labels like autism that were convenient to use at some point but not valid. Some of the developmental variations of childhood are hard to understand, others have mild forms of autism that integrate well in life as they develop coping skills.Many of these problems have a genetic basis and can be passed to offspring. I'm afraid the choice must be yours. ...Read more

On average, a woman needs 1800 calories per day so about 600 calories should come from fats. Each gram of fat gives you 9 calories, so you'd need about 66g of fat per day. If you're trying to lose weight, you'd have to consume less. ...Read more

Roughly 10cal/pound: The typical basal metobolic need is about 10 calories/pound/day. So, if you are just sitting in oneplace all day, the daily need for 150lbs person = 10x150=1500 calories. This 1500 cal is just keeping the 150lbs person even in 24 hours. If you are active, doing things etc...Then you will need more and this varies depending on level of activities you do.
