Hi Anu
I was also facing the same problem. You cannot do much about it as kids play with other kids and climatic changes, this is bound to happen as they are exposed to whole lot of things. Homeopathy is the best option. Continue with it. It takes some time but results are very good. Have patience. U can include Mosambi juice, orange or lemon juice in her diet but be sure u add warm water. If u want to follow ayurvedic then u can give her Septilin syrup 2.5ml 2 times aday for 3 months with Suckcee (vit C tabs) 1/2 tab a day for 3 months. This was suggested by my Doc. I would suggest U should not try too many things at the same time. If u are taking homeopathy, continue the treatment.

give mosambi/orange juice everyday unless its a very cold climate or the child has cold/cough. If its cold outside, give small banana (not the regular size one) one or two per day. you can even sprinkle some lemon juice over dal/curry during lunch.Regularly include onions in the diet. raisins , garlic,black pepper,turmeric all are good for cough/cold.
Also, try giving bath twice a day since she is going to pre-school. Wash her hands regularly. if she has cold, give steam at home instead of nebulising her. you get very good vaporisers in medical shops for nominal prices.

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.

Fear of Math
My kid is unable to comprehend Math. He is now 5 years old but is not able to do basic sums. I tried to make him understand but nothing seems to work. I had also kept private tuition for him so that he is able to get over the fear of Math. Nothing is helping him. Is this some kind of disability? ... - Priya Kataria [View Message]
Health Issues
I think his immunity power must be affected often or he has a weak immune system. Try to give him some healthy foods which gradually increase his immune system and also gain some good strength that prevents him from getting cold or fever. Also, if he is eating on his own then wash his hands properly before eating. Consult with your kid’s doctor on how to make him healthy... - varsha tyagi [View Message]
Interesting Ideas to make Kids Learn
Hi Malti,
Just calm down, it is common among all children and small kids love to roam or play than to study. To improve the kid’s concentration just try to play some interesting games with him. Something like matching colors and shapes etc. He is too young and there are many chances to improve him so don’t worry.
