hugh109, Here is WebMd's article on the basics of anemia: http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/understanding-anemia-basics Did your doctor do a blood test on your daughter? It's usually a small prick and they test the blood to check the levels of iron in her. Glancing at a person is not a reliable way to diagnosis someone with anemia. I would ask to see her chart to see the iron levels. Good luck!View Thread
Coloradomom22, In order to stop the behavior in your son, you'll have to help control the behavior with your nephew. Sit down with your brother and share your concerns with him. He needs to help his son manage the disruptive and aggressive behavior. Just because your nephew has ADD/ADHD doesn't excuse him for aggressiveness. Good luck!View Thread
