Just discovered my 6 year old has head lice and am horrified. I bought the liquid treatment to get rid of them but someone said it can cause cancer as it has all sorts of horrid chemicals and it is better to get rid of them through a special shampoo that is used daily...can anyone give me more information
I have a 15 year old daughter who is at school here in Singapore. I shouldn't complain probably, but I worry because she works so hard. The school has a homework policy of not giving more than a few hours of homework each day, but she often spends 4 hours doing hers. She is a straight A student and I've told her she should let the reigns go a little bit but she is worried about not 'making the grade'. Teachers have told me that is an unnessary concern. Don't know how to help her. I'm thrilled she is doing well but also want her to have a little more fun. Don't want her to switch off and go to the other extreme of not working hard. How do I get her somewhere in the middle? Anyone with experience on this subject out there? Hen
Just thought I'd share this snippet of info...recently my 5 year old has not been sleeping too well, constantly waking in the middle of the night. My friend suggested it was worms, I was horrified...well tried giving the medication and all has been well since. An Australian friend says she de worms her kids every 6 months...is this the norm here, it seems a bit excessive?
