When Can I Let My Child Go Down A Slide Without Me
Depends: This depends a lot on your child's development. In order to safely go down a slide on her own, a child has to be walking well, and also has to understand that she is supposed to stay seated the whole time while on the slide, and has to understand how to land on her feet at the bottom. If she can't do any of these three things, she's not ready to be on the slide by herself. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It's OK to let cry.: If there is no other reason for the crying that needs to be treated, then it is definitely ok, and actually recommended to let him cry.

Lean forward: During an active bleed, have her lean forward and gently pinch the outer walls of the nose together.Hold for 2-4 minutes and see if the bleeding has stopped. Blot but do not rub the nose.Leaning her back will put the blood into her stomach and cause bloody vomiting.Invest in some nasal saline gel (Ayr makes one) and place a dab in each nostril at bedtime every night & the frequency should decline. ...Read more
When necessary: Babies are not spoiled by carrying them to soothe their frustrations, however if your attention is needed where or when it might not be safe for baby(eg, kitchen) then you can put him/her down in a safe place at anytime and any age and attend to these needs. As soon as you can, pick baby up and soothe their anxieties. They will ultimately learn to spend time alone, assured that you will return. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How can I get over a girlish crush on someone who friended me on facebook but I never met? I keep wanting to chat with him and get hurt when he doesnt.
Realize many types: Feelings are not always mutual. As we form relationships beyond our family, we discover many types of people and relationships. Unlike parents and siblings, it is harder to figure out who they are and what they want from us. Only way to find out is by observing their action. One friend may not want to chat with you. Another friend may be opposite, and get hurt by your rejection. We take turns. ...Read more
My brother was walking down the road yesterday when he felt some crack in his knee after which he was not able to move his knee please help me to cure?
KNEE PAIN: Unfortunately, over the computer, this is tough to "help you to cure." Your brother should get an exam and most likely an X-ray to see what the diagnosis is in his knee, especially with the "Crack" you heard. For know, use an ace wrap on his knee, get him some nsaids to take and have him see the Dr. for an evaluation and some testing. Good luck. ...Read more
My baby's almost a week old, when can I take him outside? And when can I leave the house to do things?
No official time...: The american academy of pediatrics has no specific age cutoff before going in public. Airlines need a docs permission if newborn flying is less than 1 week. It's really up to you. The newborn's immune system isn't completely developed yet, so viruses and bacteria can be more harmful. Use common sense, and lots of hand washing. Make sure close contacts have their whooping cough booster (tdap). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I get angry and defensive whenever my girlfriend suggests she should go to the gyno. How can I feel more easy about it?
Depends: It kind of depends on why you feel the way you do ... Take a look at what exactly is making you feel threatened or upset and try to examine the sequence of events and feelings objectively. Sometimes, just taking her to the appointment and waiting for her - can put both of you at ease. Hope that helps! ...Read more
When i come home from work and my kids come to me with questions i feel closed in like i need space and want to be left alone it makes me angry?
Better: Question is why don't you take it orally as is meant to do. And why would you want to place it in your anus in the first place? Probably will not be as effective as swallowing the pill. ...Read more

I constantly worry that my son will die before me and he's only 3 mons old.. How will I handle when he goes to school or drives or plays sports?
Any age: You infant may go to the movies with you at any age. Whether you go to the movies depends upon your infant's temperament and sleep schedule.
