What Is The Psychological Reason For Kids Who Hold In Their Bowel Movements
Control: Children often feel like they have little or no control over their environment, and stooling is something they can sometimes control. It's the one battle of wills that kids can win over parents. Other times, it's about avoidance, of either pain or the sensation of loss (yes, they are attached to the poop sometimes). One good hard bm and they will try to not have another one. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet).

What is the procedure for giving first aid to a child who is injured and their parents are not around?
Will most pediatric dentists allow parents in the room during a dental exam? We're shopping around to find a dentist for our six month old, and some pediatric dentists don't seem to want parents in the room while the exam is being performed, and some don'
I : I agree with the above post. Most pediatric dentist will always have you there for your six month old but as the children become older and you trust your dentist you will then want to give them more freedom. There are plenty of pediatric dentist that will allow all parents back for theexam and dental work. Shop around and I am sure that you will find the right dentist. I feel that for the younger patients and if it is your first time at a dental office you want to see what these people are all about. Usually when the children hit 6 years old and for an exam or cleaning most parents want to wait in the waiting room or the child wants to come back themselves. For special needs patients i always have the parent or guardian present. Everybody as you are finding has different policies. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Is it ever possible for a person with major depression to loose control over their actions or themselves ie; on thier movements?
Losing control: If you lose control of your movements, that sounds dangerous and needs to be checked out medically. Some types of depression do include psychotic symptoms -- loss of contact with consensual reality. People so affected might do things that seem "odd, " such as responding to hallucinations. This is not the majority of depressed people, though; most feel badly but are in control of their actions. ...Read more

Unfamiliar term: Not sure of the context of "vulnerable adult" as a specific label. Certainly, adhd that lasts into adulthood is associaated with a wide range of increased risk for bad outcomes, and certain individuals with adhd retain a social immaturity that might make it easier for others to prey upon them. However, that is far from universal and more related to immaturity than adhd per se. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is the name of the condition that mothers try to make their children sick all the time for attention?
Can someone lying for a long period of time to a child about who their biological father is cause the child to become a compulsive liar?
More complicated.: A child learns behaviors by example, and if adults in their lives often lie, they will model that. Adults often tell "white lies" to avoid an interaction, ie, "Tell them I'm taking an nap and can't talk." Thirdly, children often lie to avoid consequences, ie, why tell the truth if that leads to punsihment Also, it depends on whether the child is aware of the truth or falsehood of his parentage. ...Read more
Is it fair to have a psychological evaluation when you are sad and depress? The court ordered psychological evaluation on the parents. One parent who had custody of the child for 16 years temporary loss custody and the child was given to the abusive paren
A : A good court evaluator would take into consideration all aspects of the parental care of the minor child. It is certainly understandable that the circumstances described would create great stress for the custodial parent and could contribute to the mood disorder described. However, if that parent had custody for 16 years, it is reasonable to assume that the child is at least 16 years of age and certainly in many state jurisdictions has a say about which parent he/she wishes to live with. It is not stated why the long term custodial parent lost custody nor what the nature of the alleged abuse might have been. These are the very factors, especially the adolescent's viewpoint that a competent evaluator would be taking into account. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The diagnose of the person who coordinate in his mind noises and his movement feel shadow in the ambient and after those have personality changes.
Please rephrase: I know you're trying to be as specific as possible but I'm not sure I'm clear on the symptoms. Does this person hear noises or voices in their head? Do they see people or things around them? And has their personality changed? I think that could be anything from schizophrenia to even prion disease (rapidly developing dementia). Can you provide more information? ...Read more
Do old patients like those old doctors more who talks to them more, when they get a feeling that he is respecting their age, any psychology behind this ?
See below: Speaking from my experience: i work primarily with geriatric clientele and i'm much younger than my average client. It's not about the age, it's about ability to relate, empathize, respect, and being able to help on the person's level. While having similarities definitely helps with establishing rapport, ultimately it's my ability to relate, empathize, and be a clinician a that helps the client. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What can parents do if it is their kid who is the bully? The loner? The silent one who holds things in?
Is it shameful or normal for two teenagers to compare their penis,testes size (by showing their penis,testes to each other) secretly in a closed room?
Penis size: While it is normal to be curious, it is best to leave private parts private. Comparisons may result in lowered self esteem. There is much discussion about penis size in our culture. Hopefully, you understand that while larger anatomical parts may be a turn- on for some, it is not about size, but how you use it! I'm referring to pleasing your partner in sensitive, intimate ways. Foreplay, not size! ...Read more
