When Can A Child With Measles Go Back To School

Otherwise you will probably see that they are sent back home from school. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How can a person schedule himself to get to the gym a few evenings in the week when you have small children to care for?

I want him to be the smartest in his HS class so he gets a good college. Should I wait to enroll in the preschool program until next time when my newborn will be older?
Don't live through c: Don't live your life through your child. Getting into the best college is not as important as most people think. I had a scholarship to a small private school, and went there to help my family. I was able to engage in athletics, and got into a top three medical school. Getting into "toney" schools is overrated! mostr of are presidents went to small colleges initially, without major reutation! ...Read more
First, make sure...: ...That it really is a ringworm; many circular rashes are assumed to be ringworm by inexperienced caregivers. If it really is ringworm, once treatment is started, it is okay for your child to go to school. Treatment depends on the location; if it's on the face or scalp, make sure your doctor gives you an oral treatment - creams and lotions won't get the job done in most cases. ...Read more
After a an MMR vaccine, when does the of a window does the fever go away? When will he be back to himself
It's ok: From a medical standpoint, it's fine. However, every school district has it's own rules for illness and conditions.

Yes, but it's tough: A child who is selectively mute is by definition a "special needs child". Their version of communication will be different, and there is generally a good reason why they are mute, either from a social or other phobia, ptsd, antisocial syndromes, or other type of reason. A child who is selectively mute should get an iep (individual ED plan) to ensure a normal school offers the right services. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Almost any age: You must continue to observe your child's language development over time. A 4 month old should be babbling with multiple vowel sounds and occasional consanants. By 8-9 months, your child should use initial consanants with repetitive syllables. By 10 months, he should truncate to short words. By 12 months, expect 2-3 words, and by 15 months 5-10. The evolution is continuous, and you can follow. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
How do children get mono and is it contageous? My son is 6 and going to be 7 in a few months.
He goes to public school in hawaii
Infectious : Infectious mono is a viral illness caused by the epstein barr virus (ebv). It is spread primarily through saliva which is why it is also known as the "kissing disease", but can also be spread through sharing eating utensils. Even among people who catch ebv, many are not symptomatic, so special precautions (such as no kissing) are not needed. 95% of adults aged 35-40 have been exposed to it at some point and have immunity to it - at least 50% of them had no symptoms of mono. I attached a link to the page on ebv from the center for disease control with more information. ...Read more
