Managing Temper Tantrums in Children
All children from time to time will cling, shout, throw, resist, complain, argue and do not listen to their parents or teachers. Though they are normal, they can be upsetting to everyone around. They become problematic when they increase in severity, intensity and duration that is typical for the age of the child.
Usually they starts at around 1.5 years age and stay till 4 years of age.

WHY DO THEY HAVE TEMPER TANTRUMS

1.They get angry if they do not get what they want.
2.They want to control their lives.
3.They have not learnt effective skills to get what they want.
4.They learned from parents who show temper outbursts.

HOW TO PREVENT TANTRUMS

1.Praise the child for his/her good behavior
Give extra attention whenever child behaves well. Give him a hug and praise him. For example - when a child has put his shoes in place, instead of ignoring it, acknowledge it and praise him saying “Wow, that’s like a good boy. You put your shoes in the correct place. Wonderful!”

2.Encourage the child to use words.
For example - If he wants something, tell him to use words like ‘i want food/ i want this toy’ instead of screaming.

3.Also see whether they are eating and sleeping well.

4.Identify triggers -
For example, Are they hungry or tired? sometimes even when the parent is busy, a child can throw temper tantrum to gain attention.
After a long day of work, instead of directly going to make dinner, the parent can go give the child a hug and spend some quality time.

5.Give signals before ending an activity
For example - say “You have 5 more minutes before I switch off the TV” instead of switching it off suddenly.

HOW TO HANDLE TEMPER TANTRUMS

1.Remain calm and do not argue with the child - Before managing your child’s behavior you must manage your behavior (sometimes children learn from parents who show anger outbursts and learn to shout and scream). Shouting at the child will worsen the child’s behavior.

2.Think before acting and count till 10 if you are frustrated - and then think about the source of child’s frustration.

3.Come down to the child’s eye level - and say ‘you are starting to become hyper, calm down’

4.Distract the child - by asking them to focus on something else. For example say “let’s read a book or let’s go for a walk”

5.Ignore the tantrum - if it is to draw your attention. After the child becomes calm, show him attention.

6.Hold the child who is out of control - and who can harm him/herself. Tell the child that you will let him or her go only when he or she calms down. Reassure the child that everything will be alright.

7.Hug your child who is crying - and say that you love them but the behavior should change. Reassurance and hugging will always be comforting to the child.

8.Talk to the child after the child has calmed down - Talk to the child about his or her frustration.

Try to teach the child how to interact with a friend or sibling or parent and ask for what he or she wants.
Tell them how to express his or her feelings with words and recognise the feelings of others also without hitting and shouting.
Tell them the better ways to get things that they want.
Tell them that we all have anger within and also tell them how to appropriately express it.

9.Never give in to a tantrum - If you give in once the child will get used to it and his tantrums will increase more.

10.Do not let the tantrum interfere with your relationship - with your child.

Consult a professional if the tantrums are increasing even after 3.5 years of age or if there is self injurious behavior, depression, injuring others, low self esteem etc.

Hi. Continue previous medication. Along with that few homeopathic medicines like spongia tosta, antim tart etc etc helps for lung related issues. It might help to certain extent I guess so. If Bp is not recordable then admit her nearby hospital urgently. Take care.

Sometimes simple cough takes several days to get cleared in children because of the narrow airways. Give ascoril ls syrup 5ml three times a day till he gets better. If there is fast breathing get chest x ray done.

He appears to be a fussy eater. Most importantly you need to be patient with. Don't shout or scream while feeding him. Try to make her feeding time fun or playtime. After not giving any food for 3 hrs at least make him sit with the food he likes (solid foods not pastes or liquids) with spoon and katori or fork. Let him at least play with the food for some time. If he likes milk a lot then try to give solid like plain rice, oats. Chatu. With the pediasure you can have a deal with him. He will take 1 sip milk and 1 bite of something this way he will learn to chew threptin biscuits are good to taste and are rich in protein (casein) avoid giving him chips fast food makes small pieces of food and ask her to try just 1 bite. If he likes the taste she will have another. If he likes chicken. Give him chicken in different ways. Introduce him to egg. Boiled or omelette whatever he likes. Play with him till he feels tired. Playing running will improve digestion. Don't loose temper you can give him one egg a day cucumbers made into small pieces will help with problem of flatulence. Children have to deal with new food, new habits. So they act out. Do not get flustered if he criesmakes a scene. Sit quietly, go to another room, ignore him. He will learn that bad behaviour will not allow him to get her own way. I know it's very difficult but keep trying as that's the best you can give him. Pain abdomen may be due indigestion earmarked, gastritis. Good hand hygiene: regular nail trimming washing hand after each toilet visit. And before taking any food in any form also take care of drinking water quality. Test adviced: cbc with aec stool and urine r/e, m/e usg abdomen share the reports if any.

Going by natural way, chance are very less of twin pregnancy. But through IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) the chances of twins pregnancies are more.

What are the signs and causes of hair loss in children

What are the signs and causes of hair loss in children

Excessive hair fall, thinning of hair and bald spots are not only concerns of adults, children too suffer from hair woes. Look for signs and identify causes that are leading to your child's hair loss. With proper treatment hair loss can be reversed and your child's hair can be restored.

Symptoms

Look for these signs to determine whether your child is suffering from hair loss.

  • Bald patches on the head.
  • Loss of hair from the entire body
  • Excessive hair loss but not complete fallout
  • Spots of broken hair and scattered hair loss

Causes

  • Alopecia areata - This condition results in oval patches of hair fallout from certain portions of the head. It is a noncontiguous condition that appears when the body's immunization attacks the hair follicles. About 25% of affected kids also suffer from ridging nails.
  • Tinea capitis - Also known as ringworms of the scalp, this is a type of fungal infections that are often seen in children. It causes oval shaped scaly spots on the head due to breakage of hair and the remaining roots seem like black spots.
  • Telogen effluvium - If your child has undergone some kind of trauma, be it physical or psychological, it can cause the hair follicles to enter into the resting phase and within 6 to 16 weeks excessive hair loss occurs leaving your child partially bald.
  • Trichotillomania - Stress or anxiety can cause your child to pull out his/her own hair. This results in scattered hair loss and broken hair which is prominent on the sides of the head.
  • Lack of nutrients - Nutritional deficiency can cause hair loss if your child lacks vitamin A, B complex and biotin it can trigger hair fall.

Hair fall in children is common and treatable if they are of medical causes. Sometimes rubbing and playing with hair can also cause hair loss so parents are advised to look into all the probable causes that might lead to shedding.

It is called encopresis and usually due to psychological problem. Find out any stress inducing events in the family or school. It will resolve slowly. Get an mri spine to rule out a neurological problem which sometimes may cause that.

This is not a problem, this happens because of sympathetic stimulation. Since they have good amount of hemoglobin they tend to have red face while crying.

Till the age of 4 - 6 months he must be given only breast milk. Then you can start semisolids. You feed on demand (whenever he demands) sticking to 2- 4 hours apart.

Sorry, your information is vague and some inconsistent. If baby can sit well, she must on also turn (rolling). As she can sit well, she may not be suffering from hypotonia. It is necessary to know more information to arrive some conclusion.
