Respiratory tract infection Is an important cause of mortality in under 5 children in India. If your child refuses feed, if takes rapid shallow breaths, if skin colour appear bluish, if high grade fever and cough then it is the sign of severe pneumonia. Immediately rush to hospital. If hospital too far then give first dose of antibiotics like amoxycillin clavulanic acid and relieve fever by paracetamol, cold sponging. Don't close his mouth. Allow him to breathe fresh air.
It is the timely medical treatment which matters.

Ways To Help Your Child Deal With Early Puberty!

Ways To Help Your Child Deal With Early Puberty!

In case that your child is physically and sexually developing sooner than usual, it can be a testing time for them. This is usually associated with early puberty. Usually, children are very confused about the changes that their bodies  go through. What is worse is when they are hurt by the comments from other school kids, who usually insult any individual who is even slightly different. With early puberty, your kid will most likely grow faster than a lot of his or her friends and hint at puberty, for example, the formation of body hair and body odour.

To make the child feel better, parents can be of a lot of help. Along with speaking with them about early puberty with your kid, you can offer ways to deal with stress that support their self-esteem, particularly with bullies in the school. These techniques may offer help:

  1. Instill them with a lot of information about puberty and how it is a natural process. One approach to help a child’s self-esteem while managing healthy puberty is to clarify the circumstance decently well. You may use a book about puberty with illustrations, one intended for your child’s age and mental stage of development.
  2. Show them how to manage the bullying in school. Reacting to bullying and teasing is not specifically related to early puberty. It applies to a huge variety of circumstances when other kids either target or single out one kid for ridiculing them. Essential steps for parents and guardians include:

    • Focusing on the significance of searching out a teacher or other grown-up if any bullying is taking place.
    • Try to tell the child to educate his or her friends about the bullying so they can help him or her out in overcoming the same.
    • Role playing circumstances that the child is gone up against and help create reactions that help him or her get over it.
  3. Know your child’s friends. As a parent, you can create your child’s group of friends and ensure it remains an adoring, tolerating one. Ensuring you remain associated with the social situations and, most important, the built up friendship circles with the parents of other children.
  4. Look for outside support. At the point when a child is experiencing early puberty, one thing that helps them is talking with different guardians or adults in a similar circumstance.

Early puberty is a very confusing time for all children, and when that procedure goes on for quite a long while sooner than it was supposed to, especially when children's companions are not experiencing it yet, it can be very overpowering. Therefore, the child should be very well educated in this area and should get proper support from everyone. This includes parents, teachers, guardians as well as their friends.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Why Homeopathy Is Best Applied in Childhood?

Homeopathy is a natural and mild form of medication. The remedies are natural substances, which have been diluted and potentized. Homeopathic medicines are best applied during childhood and work very effectively with children. A child's self-defense or immunity gets stimulated naturally towards a healthier state without any kind of side effects. Homeopathic remedies are very safe, effective and mild. They are especially effective for children, on the grounds that the remedies work by stimulating vitality of a child's body. Children have a higher vitality naturally and thus, homeopathic medicines are extra effective during childhood. Moreover, homeopathic medicines are soft globules, which dissolve in the mouth. They are easy to take and have a sweet, pleasant taste as well.

Here is a list of diseases and disorders, which are common during the childhood along with their homeopathic remedies.

Teething:

  1. Chamomilla is used in case of painful teething during childhood. It is used when a child has got one hot cheek and one cold cheek.

  2. Colocynthis is also used to relieve intense cramps and pain in children. The irritability factor of the pain is treated.
  3. Magnesia Phosphorica treats colics with spasmodic or intermittent characteristics.

Fever:

  1. Aconite is an effective homeopathic remedy for treating sudden fever. The child's skin is likely to be hot, and the temperature of the cheeks may differ.
  2. Ferrum Phosphoricum is used for treating fever that occurs due to inflammatory problems. This kind of fever gives you pale, red cheeks.

Irritability and restlessness:

  1. Passiflora is an ideal homeopathic relaxant for children.
  2. Avena Sativa is used when a child cannot sleep due to restlessness.
  3. Kali Phosphorica treats restlessness in children occurring because of over stimulation.
  4. Magnesia Phosphorica and Natrum Phosphoricum are other homeopathic medicines, which act as relaxants.

Cough and Cold:

  1. Ipecac is the best homeopathic remedy for constant coughing along with nausea.
  2. Aconitum Napellus is used when a child wakes up from sleep with a dry, hoarse cough.
  3. Spongia Tosta cures cold, croup and cough which start from the throat.
  4. Antimonium Tartaricum is the homeopathic medicine used when mucous accumulates in the chest, giving rise to coughing.

Homeopathy is best applied in childhood as a child is at risk of developing a number of diseases. A child's body is delicate and much more sensitive than adults and is prone to getting affected easily. Moreover, homeopathy is natural and is the safest form of medicine for children. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.
