Hubby anger unbearable he become so rude&wanted to hit me but never hit me he hit kids badly say bad words but realises&say sorry but not admit fault?
Bad Bad Bad Bad Bad: Hitting anybody is not allowed (it's called assault). An anger disorder and not admitting fault is probably a couple of psychiatric diagnoses and could be treated with medications and talk therapy. This man needs some marriage counselling & parenting classes badly, but my prognosis for him is grim. Going out on a limb here: if he makes no effort, seek help for yourself and your kids in a shelter. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A 3 yr old kid who is unable to speak all words, listens but doesn't obey ur commands every time. He pulls u to the things he want, is mentally sick?
Can he hear?: This would be a great question for your pediatrician or family medicine doc. The first order of business will be to have a hearing test, because if he is deaf, he might not learn to speak well and need to communicate some other way. You may also be right to worry about how well the brain is working. Maybe he has a developmental delay. Lots of possible reasons for that, but start with hearing. ...Read more
Yes doctor my child has some devlopement delays like late crawling, standing will his speach too be delayed he speaks just two words @ 21 months?
Speech delay: Motor development (crawling and standing) happens independently of speech development. So one does not necessarily have to occur with the other. That being said, a 21 month old usually knows several words, and is starting to put together two-word sentences. If he indeed only says two words total, i recommend making an appointment with his doctor. He should have a hearing test as well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does writing letters backward mean my child has dyslexia? My daughter is in kindergarten and is learning to write. She often writes letters backward, and mixes up words with similar spellings. Does this mean she has dyslexia?
It : It is completely normal for a young child to reverse letters when first learning how to write - it is not an indicator of dyslexia. Many kids will continue to confuse b's and d's, q's and p's, well into first and even second grade. The same is true for confusing similar spellings of words. I've attached an article that talks about dyslexia and what to look for. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Hi doctor. My child has complained of suddenly hearing loss, some time he could not understand word.dr advise hearing aid after test . Please help me.
Sudden hearing loss: sudden hearing loss is a abrupt loss of hearing of 30 decibels or more over at least 3 frequencies on the hearing test. Acute hearing loss can be treated with steroids or observed. Some hearing comes back even without treatment. If the doctor recommended a hearing aid, I am assuming his hearing loss is older that one month. 1 month seems to be the golden window for treatment. ...Read more
My child has speech delay, he was saying few words around 20months but he he completely stopped talking since about 6months ago. He only makes noise.
What is the good treatment for the child who reach the 5th year and he just say few words although the doctor said that his brain and his hearing fine?
Abnormal speech: The normal child starts talking at 1 years of age and is fluent by 2 with half of the speech being intelligent. If your child is not talking at 5 years, the most likely cause is autism. I would highly recommend a speech and language assessment either by your school district or a local intervention clinic. As far as treatment, that depends on how co operative your child is. ...Read more
