Hi, I went for MMR vaccination. When nurse tried to give the vaccine I felt severe pain and I moved my hand. She didnt able to inject it sufficient amount and I found most of the vaccine was left in the syringe. Am I protected from MMR?View Thread
It's only a couple more weeks until Summer is officially here, but many schools are already out for the year. One way to beat the heat is to hit the pool, the lake or the beach (if you are lucky enough to live close to the water).
What precautions do you take to keep your kids safe? Have your children had swimming lessons? What about sun safety? Any rules or tips you'd like to share with fellow parents?
Hello all.. I am hoping to get alittle bit of advice here today about my 12 year old son. I will start off by saying that he is a wonderful fun loving boy with a heart of gold!! He started a new school back in August as a 6th grader an pretty much since about the 3rd week we've gotten calls from the school of him putting his hands on students, back talking teachers, putting forth no effort... Which he is very smart an could easily pull all A's!! His behavior at home has also changed drastically!! Since august he has had ISS 6 days an recently suspended 1 day of school!! I feel as if I'm stuck an could really use aim advice on what to say how discipline?? Please an thank youView Thread
My son who just completed 2 years and he was with my mother-in-law from his first year onwards.We just thought of getting him to us and put him in play school along with day care. His grand parents dont want us to keep him in daycare and they are very much delighted to have him with them for another year as they love to play with him and they really take care of him nicely.
Please suggest how the child feels.Will he miss us[parents> if we still keep him with grand parents? We usually visit him once in two weeks.
long-time lurker, first time poster... so some background. my husband has pretty severe PTSD. he was in Iraq for a year, and most recently was in Afghanistan for a year. he just got back from Afghanistan in September 2012. he is still active duty army, hopefully not for long if the VA will come through and get him the disability rating he needs to be able to be medically retired (he has 17+ year in, so very close to retirement age...we don't want to lose that). his PTSD keeps us from doing normal everyday things, from eating out in a restaurant to going shopping at the mall; forget about going to a fair or concert or anywhere really crowded. my husband and I have been married for over a year and dated (albeit on and off) for almost 7 years prior to getting married. after he got back from Afghanistan, we decided we were tired of playing games, made a commitment to each other, and got married the following February (on Valentine's Day... I know, right?! awwww). everything seemed to be going great, until my husband "snapped" over memorial day weekend last year. he's been in the VA psych ward twice, once voluntary and once 5150. long story short, he wanted to kill himself, and I wouldn't let him. thankfully he's been in treatment ever since. much better, but still not "normal" by any stretch of the imagination. now to the meat and potatoes. my husband has a daughter (my stepdaughter) who just turned 16 last year. his relationship with his daughter has always been strained, but it seems like it has been more strained as of late, pretty much since he got back from Afghanistan. she came to see us for Christmas that year, then has only been back once since. SHE.HATES.ME. I don't know what to do. based on what the rest of my husband's family has to say, her relationship issues with her father are MY fault. the only person of his family who will even talk to me anymore is his (my husband's) father, and he tends to try to stay out of the drama. however, his mother has said I'm not really a part of the family and that since I don't have any kids of my own I "don't have a dog in this fight" ... the "fight" being how to fix the broken relationship between my husband and stepdaughter. I was adopted, and as much as I love my parents, I know how much it hurts to want a relationship with a biological parent and have them reject you. I just don't know what to do. do I try to talk to her, try to fix some of what my husband can't? should I try to talk to her on my own? and how do I deal with the other judgmental family members? this broken relationship between my husband and his daughter can't possibly be my fault, can it? TL;DR: my stepdaughter hates me, husband has PTSD and can't have normal relationships; everything blamed on me. HELP!View Thread
I've noticed this summer that my two year old has developed a couple ( maybe ten) of red pumps on each 8 his cheeks. They don'T have heads and aren't painful. He bathes daily and we use baby wipes after meals on his face and hands.. These bumps come and go, any ideas on what causes them and how to treat?View Thread

My 7 year old daughter came home from school yesterday complaining that her legs hurt..so I told her to sit down and rest that maybe she was just on them too much. She eventually quit complaining about them but when she woke this morning for school she was saying that her back hurt. Should I take her to see her doctor? Or could it just be growing pains? Anyone else ever had this with their child?View Thread
Up until a few weeks ago, our son had never colored or written on our walls. This has happened on a few occasions over the past few weeks and he will lie about it for a good 15 minutes until coming clean. It is very draining on my wife and I (he is an only child) and we are at a loss to get him to stop. We have punished him, taken things away and nothing has worked yet.
Two years ago, I posted regarding my fear that I and my brothers (and potentially our offspring) could not develop immunity to Mumps and could not respond to the MMR vaccine. Just an some notes and update:
There are 5 of us, and 9 years separates the oldest and youngest brothers.
We all received vaccinations against mumps, measles, and rubella at different times and locations (for those who say, maybe it was a "faulty batch").
Even after vaccination, all 5 of us contracted Mumps in 1977.
My MMR titer in 2012 showed NO immunity against mumps, even though I received the vaccine AND had the mumps.
I received another MMR vaccine in 2012 in order to start grad school.
In 2013, my 2nd to youngest brother had to provide proof of vaccination. He had his titers checked. Results: no immunity to measles (even though he, like me, was vaccinated AND had measles).
After hearing this, I re-tested in late 2013. Results: no immunity to measles.
How can this be? I know that Dr. Benaroch stated that vaccine immunity (or lack of) does not run in families, but perhaps there are things we still do not know about vaccines. NOTE: I am PRO-vaccine. I am in NO way discouraging vaccines and would not want my children around un-vaccinated children. However, I am perplexed on how this could happen if there's not something genetic preventing me and my brothers from developing immunity to measles. So, similar to my original question: should my 3 other brothers have their titers checked, and, if they too do not show an immunity to measles, should we have our children's titers checked, too?

My daughter fully potty trained at 3 and by 4 had constant uti's which sent us to specialist and confirmed treat as she gets them. for the last two years I've gone to dr. on and off no uti's yet she wets at night and goes to bathroom 8-10 times in a hr. Now she experiences wet pants just bearly when coughing what can I do. I'm tired of the dr's saying theres nothing we can do. She's been tested for diabetes and told she didn't have it. Which was a concern due to her fathers side of type 1 diabetes. Any suggestions???View Thread
So my son is 6 years old, he was diagnosed with ADHD and ODD. Is. Currently being seen by 2 child psychologist and is currently on 20mg adderal. I also have 2 other children 3 & 1 years old, no deaths, no new marriage, we are a military family, but haven't moved in 2 years, this went on before any moves.
He has been potty trained since he was 2 years old, but urniates in his room, he will steal bottles out of recycle to pee in and then hide them under his bed. He even takes his little brothers clothes and blankets out the dresser to pee on them, but never on his own stuff. I keep lights on threw out the house so he can see at njight , but I've noticed he does this during day when all bathrooms are accessible. Its gotten to the point where now I'm 3 yr old is following in his older brother steps and pee`d on their younger sisters toy.
He is always so violent. If he doesn't get his way he will cause pain to him self such as, punching him self in face, bang his head on floors or walls. His movie went off a couple nights ago my husband heard him yelling at the TV and walked in to find him urinating in plane sight.
He also does not sleep at night or during the day. I have tried melatonin and it worked tik we upped is dosage of adderal. If his siblings are sleep he will terrorize them. I walked up stairs tonight to find him standing over his brothers bed growling at him then he spit in hisnface , while his brother was asleep.
I have discussed all this with his doctors but they haven't help at all. And when I ask my son why, he doesn't say anything, just shuts downView Thread
I am in desperate need of help. My son was eating fine, until he started teething his mowlers. After they came out i cant get him to eat chicken, fish etc. He will have crisps, and snacks. But want nothing to do with a plate of dinner unless i mash it all up and feed him. He refuses to eat breakfast unless i feed it to him. This is my day one of " cruel to be kind, i put the food down, and if he is hungry, he will eat. Its been 8 months since his teeth. But it needs to stop now, he is going to school soon and i wish for him to be able to eat what ever they have available. I am asking advise, not critism. Its a very tender subject. I am desperate for help.. is it ok, is it a stage, what do i do next? Thank youView Thread

My 3 1/2 yr old granddaughter has had one ear infection after another for the last 6 months. She had tbes put in her ears a month ago and one came out within the first week and the other tube was closed up from her ear healing and closing the tube off. The ENT said he had never seen a problem like this before. He reinserted the tubes, using titanium ones this time. Now after 2 weeks, her ear is inflamed again. No infection, but inflamed. What can be done for this poor child?View Thread

I just happened to find out that my 14 year old girl is cruelly dominating her 12,10 and 7 year old younger brothers. When I came home from work I heard hysterical screaming and crying, I panicked and assumed that someone had hurt themselves but when I came in the house I saw Ryan(my 12 year old) clutching his balls while crying on the floor and saw nick (my 10 year old),and jack (my 7 year old) screaming louder than I've ever heard them (which is really saying something) while kaylin (my 14 year old girl)had nick's balls in one hand and jack's in the other and it seemed like she was squeezing each pair as hard as she can!!!!!! I immediately went to their rescue, grabbed kaylin's hair and yanked it down as hard as I could sending her to the floor and literally dragged her into her room and locked her in!. After that I asked them why she did that and how long she has been doing this and that told me because that did not follow her orders and did not let her suck/molest (from school and such she had apparently I become curious with male genitals ext) but I was so infuriated I took away every electronic she had and gave them away, canceled all of her sleepovers and "nights out" with friend and I grounded her. Please tell if I over or under did her punishments and what I should do about all of this!View Thread
I need help please. I have a 4 year old daughter. She will be 5 in just a couple weeks. I have noticed over the last couple years she has been potty trained and for some odd reason she has been peeing on the floor in her room. I am not sure why she is doing to this or how often she does this. What I do know is that she pees rather frequently. It does not matter how much she has had to drink. She will pee at least every 30 minutes or so. I am not sure what can cause this but if anyone can please help I would really appreciate it. Please let me know something.View Thread
