My nephew aged 11 years, has seizure since last month. Doctors diagnosed it epilepsy. We started medicines but seizures occurs on every 2 & 3 days. Mostly during seizure his eyes goes upward and his body has vibrates as electric shocks. Once after seizure his body shocked many times. We asked him what is this. He said my nerves are jaults from inside. We want to know is it epilepsy or not. What should we do at the time of seizures. Eagerly waiting for your reply. At this time he is taking 2 medicines named valparin 200 & levecitram. Thanks.
Dear Doctor, I am the mother of baby girl of one and half month.. We came to know that she is having one hole of 0.53 cm perimembranous and one more hole of 0.29 cm ASD at her age of 25 days. Our paediatrician suggested no treatment at this time and she will be kept under observation for 2 years and echocardiography for every 6 months once. Mostly holes may close by their own. Now she is of 3.7kg. Feeding is in normal way and she is active also. But we are really worried about this condition. Whether her condition is very severe? Whether holes close by their own?
My one month old son awake from 6 pm till 12 in the night, he cries even after I feed, he frequently urinate and drink milk in 30 mins gap in that time, I do only breast feeding, he sleeps only after 12 but sleeps till 5 in the morning. In that time he urinate only twice and fall asleep immediately. I am worried for this behaviour. Is anything wrong.

Childhood memories are always special, we often get nostalgic reminiscing about them. When we were kids there was a range of outdoor activities, games and creative things to do, something to look forward and run around. However, the definition of modern childhood has undergone a sea change.
If you have a child in your home, you will be acutely aware of the gadget addiction phenomenon. Be it a mobile, iPad, television or gaming console, children today are almost inseparable from their gadgets. From a 2-year-old baby to 12-year-old teenagers, all can be found glued to their favorite gadgets, due to which physical activity and outdoor games have ceased to exist in their lives.
Further, this addiction to modern day gadgets is triggering a negative impact on their health. A number of studies indicate that the incidence of obesity, depression, and even diabetes (juvenile diabetes) amongst children and teenagers is on a mercurial rise, because of such a lifestyle.
But who is to be blamed for this?
It is common knowledge today, that parents across that globe try to deliver the best of everything to their kids, but sometimes we forget that more than things and luxury, our kids need our time.
Here are some effective measures to curb the gadget menace
Communicate: As a modern working parent, life is extremely hectic. However, make sure you spend some quality time with your child daily. Talk to your child about different things and understand what is going in their daily life.
Understand your child: Communication paves the way for better understanding, but as a parent, you have to make an effort to understand your child, as each child is unique and so are their needs.
Educate yourself: Make sure you are fully aware of what is going on with your child and how he or she is doing throughout the day in different areas, be it school or other activities. Talk to the other parents, and know what your children's peer group are doing.
Engage them: Take them to parks, indulge in fun outdoor and physical activities. When your child refuses to eat or do a particular work, never bribe them with a mobile phone or a laptop. Instead, promise them a weekend picnic or a day out.
Reduce internet time: Make sure children below 8 years have either no access or reduced access to the Internet. In fact, children below 10 years should not be allowed to use mobile phones, but that is practically not possible in today’s time, so parents should make an effort to control that and make sure that their children are not spending unnecessary time on internet as not only it is wasting their precious time, but also affects their mental health too.
Lastly, do not let your child forget that there is more to life than video games and TV. Love them but don’t give in to your child’s unrealistic demands.
Is my child hyperactive?
Now a days we hear very often from parents, teachers, grandparents, neighbors that “this child is very hyperactive”.
Many parents make the child sit for studies for hours which is beyond their capacity and then complain, call them hyperactive, can’t sit for studies, keeps talking, leaves the place often, etc. But hyperactivity involves many other characteristics to be identified before we label any child as hyperactive.
The technical term is attention deficit hyperactive disorder (adhd). Which involves inattention, hyperactivity and impulsive.
If five out of nine hyperactive behaviors (given below) are present in the child then only we can say that the child is hyperactive.
1. Often fidgets with hands or feet or squirms in seat.
2. Often leaves seat in classroom or in other situations in which remaining seated is expected.
3. Often runs about or climbs excessively in situations in which it is inappropriate.
4. Often has difficulty playing or leisure activities quietly.
5. Is often on the go or often acts as if driven by a motor.
6. Often talks excessively.
7. Often blurts out answers before questions have been completed.
8. Often has difficulty awaiting turns.
9. Often interrupts or intrudes on others.
Let us all decide not to label any child as hyperactive before we find at least 5 out of the above mentioned characteristics in the child.
If you find that your child has hyperactivity then you must take some steps to manage the hyperactivity.
We all have heard michale phelps name. Who has won more than 10 gold medals in olympics. He was diagnosed with ADHD.
Following tips can help you to manage your child’s behavior:
Acceptance: first parents must take it positively that your child is hyperactive which means his energy level is more than his peers. If this energy is utilized, your child can do wonders.
Physical activity: parents should send their child for some physical activity as per the availability and liking of the child. For example: swimming, karate, basketball, skating, etc.
Managing behavior: behavior modification techniques are a great tool available with parents to improve the child’s behavior and increase his understanding about his own behavior.
Patience: parents patience level needs to be very high with these kids. If parents give up on them, scold them every now and then, point out their mistakes in front of others, talk to the sarcastically, hurt their ego unknowingly, these type of parent’s behavior lowers their self esteem, lowers self confidence.
Diet: balanced diet is very important for these kids as their activity level is high they can suffer with some deficiencies. Its been suggested by some researchers that sweet consumption should be lower for hyperactive kids. Read child's nutrition requirements.
Quality time: if parents spend quality time with kids they tend to listen to that parent more. Kids co-operate and respect the parent who spends more quality time instead of telling them all the time does and dont's. Quality time is that time when the parent and the child both enjoy each other’s company, engage in some activity which they both like.
For example: cooking a special dish, outdoor game, indoor game, oiling each other’s hair, planning an event, trekking, planning a shopping list, cleaning house, watering plants, watching a movie together, etc.
School parent coordination: its very important to inform the school about the child’s problem so that the school staff also help in managing the child’s behavior.
If the hyperactive kids are engaged properly and parents nurture their self-esteem, these kids can do wonders. They can be very productive, happy and responsible citizens.
Lets give them a good environment to develop their potential and a great future.
