Hi docs, My nephew aged 4 years stutters a lot. His speech is not at all clear. Please guide us for the same.

Well this may be due brain function disorder or it can be due to hormonal disorder, you need proper homoeopathic treatment for this purpose, you may need to do CT scan brain, you can contact me through Lybrate in private consultation.

As the first step you have to check his blood cbc and tsh and inform me. You give different food items each day and make eating a playful act for him.

Hello, ●New born baby is unable to distinguish between night & daytime. Hence, after few week, you have to educate the baby the difference between  day & night in order to establish sound sleep in the night. ●When its day, the baby should be brought in sun light to recognise the day time and similarly in night the baby should be kept in a dim. Light to recognise eving or night time. Her day should be brighter and the night be darker. ●This has to be ensured  that child is adequetly ,fed before going to bed & continued feeding 2 hrly. ●Some time the baby suffers from abdominal pain, earache,headache due to change in climate, cause her weep. ●  usually, we fail to assess the room- temprature being suitable for the baby to make her sleep, comfortably.Ac should be tuned & fan should be adjusted as per the need be. ● in the night while feeding the baby of your own  baby asleeps without taking sufficient quty of milk, makes her weep, again and again during sleep, please keep checking the fact & adjusted as the condition warants. Homoeopathically,  your baby might be nurtured, successfully. Your feedback is solicited to followup your baby. The care.

Raising a child with Downs syndrome is challenging. To know which path to follow you yourself need good knowledge of your child's condition. That way you ask specific questions, in general milestones are always delayed in downs which means that they don' t develop social, motor, language, fine skills at the same age as normal children. Your concern about your child is pretty genuine but the truth is there is not one definite answer. These kids need a lot more stimulus to speak than other kids. Do not pressurize your child or make him feel intimidated that way he ll loose his confidence before he fully gains it. I would suggest you look for a teaching program for Downs syndrome in your city. Such programs mostly focus on childs growth and development.

Strict Parenting - Can It Be Harmful For Your Kids?

Strict Parenting - Can It Be Harmful For Your Kids?

You might think, as a parent, that if you behave strictly then your child will become well-behaved. But research and studies have shown that the opposite happens. Strict parenting leads to children who behave worse than others and they suffer from low self-esteem.

Some other reasons why being strict is harmful:

  1. Never learning self-regulation: Responsibility and self-discipline have to be learned by the children themselves. When you put harsh limits on them, they never learn self-regulation. If they think the limits don’t sound too harsh, they will learn to accept them. But the limits placed on them should never be controlling. If this happens, children see themselves as being controlled and no one enjoys being controlled.
  2. Instilling fearIf you are being authoritarian (parenting in which there are high demands and low sympathy) instead of empathetic, then your children will become scared of you. You are instilling the power of fear in them. This triggers a vicious chain of events. When you yell, they will yell as well.
  3. Anger and depression: Authoritarian parenting often leads to children believing a part of them is unacceptable. They feel that their parents would not understand. It makes them susceptible to anger management issues and depression.
  4. Blindly obeying those in power: Children raised up in strict households start thinking power is always right. They learn to obey blindly. This makes them vulnerable to peer pressure. They also never learn to take responsibility for their actions.
  5. Rebelling: Children tend to be angrier and become rebellious when they have strict parents. The need to break free and not conform to the non-empathetic limits that forces them to act out. They might even nurture thoughts about leaving home and running away.
  6. Lying: Strict parenting creates excellent liars. Children learn to lie when they are in trouble. They think lies will placate their parents and they can get away with anything.
  7. Damage to parent-child relationship: If you are strict and you don’t change your authoritarian ways, then it damages your relationship with your children. Natural empathy is lacking in strict parents. You don’t understand your child, and your child doesn’t feel like sharing their lives with you. It creates a divide between the parent and child. Children never quite get over this as they grow older.

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

Just stick on Exclusive Breast feeding. Even a baby doesnot pass stoll for 7 days on breast milk, no problem. Do not give any laxatives until unless his poor bowel movement affects his activity, wt gain, feeding patrern.

The disease itself is not life threatening but it may cause seizures which turn outs to be dangerous at times. Get proper homoeopathic consultation and treatment. Cure of this is possible. You may book an appointment for private consultation.
