I saw the article about a teen boy passing out. My son-in-law passed out a few times growing up. He was active in sports. he is 38 now. He passed out sitting down waiting to clock in for work. He has a cardic arrest, if he had been some where by his self he wouldn' be here now. They did cpr on him. They sent him to the hospital, if the doctor that seen him didn't have some knowledge of BRUGADA, he wouldn't know. It is a very rare and the symptoms go unnoticed. The ekg had a different spike and the doctor noticed it. It normaally shows up in males between 30 to 40 years old. To make a long story short. He has a pace maker and defibrillator. They can do a test to see if they have it. It is inherited. His grand father built houses. He fell off a house at 41 and died, that was over 40 years ago. Brugada has only been know about for a shorter time. He has a 19 year old son and he is going to have the test. I HOPE THE LADY THAT HAS A TEEN THAT PASSED OUT READS THIS.View Thread

Sexting can be tough to track. Only one in seven sexters has been caught having sent or received these types of messages, most commonly by a parent. If you are worried about your child, a mobile app called AmberWatch SafeText allows parents to monitor their child's mobile device for instances of sexting in a safe, trusted manner. You can easily find it online at the AmberWatch SafeText website.View Thread
To the parents w the 12yr old bowel issue.
I have a 12yr old w/ a pooping issue. This is a medical problem
called incaprisis, my son has this. Their lg. bowel gets so stretched from
constipation that they lose the urge and feeling to poop. Although the urinating
on himself is not a traite of this. This also runs hand in hand with ADHD which my son also has. Like you said rewards only work temporarily. I was told that if it isn't handledbefore puberty it won't be. I highly, highly suggest that you seek a phsycological evaluation as well as a pediatric gastroenterologist. Best wishes and good luck.View Thread

You may see them sometimes even in Internet Explorer 6 when in a thread.. But IE6 isn't supported well anymore and is full of security risks . Nearly all major sites no longer actively create fixes for IE6 compatibility. (including Google and YouTube)
