Health Issues:removing toddler's body hair
Name: ritu
hi everyone.when i was pregnant, i asked a question here about removing hair on my to-be baby's body,as my hubby is very hairy and i was affraid, my little girl would have lots of hair too. well, she was born with hair, and some amma's told me not to worry,and tht the hair would fall off by itself. some even discouraged using oil massage, coz, it'll make the baby dark. since i had/have no help from either side of my family( love marraige, n loads of problems) i had to look after my baby myself. now, she'll be 2 in a few days, and the hair on her body has not lessened. her forehead is covered wid so much hair, and so is her back. now, i feel cheated... seems like there was no proper advise.. i knw of a lady who does daily 'til'oil(sesame seed), and, her baby is hairless!! he even has a wonderful glow, and the colour tone of his body(though wheat-ish colour) is so smooth. i feel sooo bad... anyways, theres no point in regretting.. but,now, i wanna do oil massage for her daily, and also a 'chandan' (sandalwood paste) massage. pls advise if tht would be any good. i really need lots of comfort, but truthfull replies pls. thankyou all in advance. your wisdom is very precious to me.

Don't worry...we use Channa (Besan) flour, turmeric, yogurt paste to give shower to the babies to remove hair.

I have 4 years old daughter. She had a cough from birth which sounds very bad. The normal cough only will have bad sound. I consulted doctors and treated her with ayurveda too, but no use.

Health Issues - Tonsilitis
HI Pihu! Tonsilitis isnt a major procedure and many children get it removed. Children are more resilient that you think. Go for another opinion and if that also concurrs, get it done at the best hospital possible. It will help her a great deal if you get it removed. I had mine removed when I was eleven!

Health Issues
I think there is no specific age to get rid of this habit, because I have seen many children who used to suck their thumb even after attending schools. Try some methods like tying some small clothes around your kid’s thumb or apply some cream or oil which your child don’t like around the thumb.

Try this ideas
Hi Priya!
Firstly be calm and accept that not every kid can understand everything at an instance. Try any different and useful methods that help your kid to understand. Use pebbles or any color beads to teach counting. Likewise use two different color beads to teach addition or subtraction. I would say my kid as an example here. He never understood math when he was s... - stutee saini [View Message]
Violent Behaviour
Hello Priyamani,
Don’t worry about your kid. I would share a good idea here which I actually got from my kid’s teacher at Orchids International School. Try to capture a photo or a video when he hits or pushes anyone. Show him the image or the video and ask him whether it is nice or will anybody like a kid who do such activities.
