 Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Hey vidula!.. really need your help!my son is joining university theres and orientation ceremony in which we have got to where something formal my daughter can decide wht she wants to wear she is 15......what do u think wud suit the atmosphere the best?

Athlea (Calicut, USA)

A: A knee length skirt slim fitted skirt with a nice matching blouse should look nice and is a safe option. She need not be too cutting edge, as this is an orientation ceremony, and not a party or nightclub. If she has to be formally dressed, she should avoid flowery prints, which could look informal. It is safest to stick to dark, solid colours, if the orientation is at night. If it is during the day, she could wear a pastel top with beige trousers. Heels always look more formal than flats. Different universities have different dress codes for orientation ceremonies. Often, universities in the US have informal orientations, so I am only giving you advice as to what, in my opinion, is formal clothing.

Vidula Chopra

Q: My son is four yrs old. He is good at learning things but he does not have any interest in learning colors or coloring. At home he is very naughty and speaks the whole day, but is very quite and shy in school. What could be the possible reason?

Jyotika (Dubai, UAE)

A: Children have fancy for various things. You should not force children to like or dislike things.

Dr. Subba Rao

Q: My daughter is very figitive. She cannot sit straight without moving even for a minute which may be is resulting into no concentration and no focus. Either studies or games anything she does, she can do it for few minutes only and then leaves it or gets diverted. Even if we try to teach him something at home or school, she pays attention hardly for two minutes and then diverts her mind to some other figitive activity. How can I improve her concentration skills.

Mankia (Reston, USA)

A: Your daughter is quite young. He will start learning to concentrate slowly. Please be patient.

Dr. Subba Rao

Q: My daughter repeats the questions asked by her teacher. She has started goin to school. Whenever the teacher asks her something, she repeats the same question back to her. What can we do? Please help.

Nisha (Hyderabad, India)

A: I think you should give some more time to your child to understand the difference between a question and an answer. Be patient. Spend more time with her. Keep asking her questions. She will slowly learn it.

Dr. Balasubramanian

Q: My son is four years old and goes to a nursery. The problem with him is that he is very mischievious and loves to play all the time. He also cannot pronounce a few words correctly. When we try to correct him, he doesn't pay attention. Even in school, he hates to pay attention to studies and is always upto some or the other mischief.

Sargam (Mumbai, India)

A: Your child is too young. He has to learn the ways of the world. Playing is his right. If he doesn't play at this age, when will he? Leave him alone. Don't force him to devote a lot of time to studies.

Q: My daughter seems to have developed a mental block against school work. She is of normal intelligence otherwise and loves playing on computer, but somehow switches off when it comes to school work. Her teacher has been complaining that she is one of the worst students in class. What do I do?

Mohini (Ahmedabad, India)

A: It is possible that your child is facing a problem at school with friends or teachers. Does she exhibit any other behaviour problem? It is also possible that she is having a problem with grasping being slow or he being slower than others at writing due to hidden/masked problems as scholastic backwardness or dyslexia. Being good at computers games may not be an indicator towards the aptitude required for normal academics. Also she could have attention problems or concentration problems due to ADHD. It would be advisable to approach a child psychiatrist or counselor.
