Hello Mam.My daughter aged 6 keeps on asking questions nowadays about little things which we never give attention like why wires have been connected like that or why moon is seen in daylight or why we feel sun is also moving along with us when we are walking.Is it a good habit of asking questions or should this habit be discouraged

hi. darshana it is a very gud sign that she is curious about knowing things. its really a good habit, i know that it sometimes becomes irritating to give so much of answer but if we really want them to grow it is important to answer all their queries. u can involve other members of ur family with you if its becoming too much for you alone. 2020-04-09 14:03:19

hi priya.  its really easy to pass a mobile or iPad to an upset child or when you need to attend to something. Sure, it keeps them engaged, they enjoy playing games and watching videos but they soon get addicted to it thats what i think is happening in ur case. its better that we set aside a fixed time for gadgets and do same for us as well as kids copy us a lot. also involve him into certain activities like story telling, playing board games involving him in ur little day to day chores, giving him responsibility of managing his room and keeping it clean try to make it fun for him rather then a liability. 2020-04-09 14:11:31

make a daily time table for him and stick it on his table or almirah keep the time for gadgets fixed in that timetable alot time for play, study, self-care, for little chores like keeping his things at place, making his bed, helping you in ur chores. also u can make star chart for which many ideas are available online and then ask him to collect stars for himself and then get him somewhere in return of the stars he gained. 2020-04-09 14:37:39

hi amrita. yes dear some kids behave like this just try and sit with her and indirectly try to find whether any social situation is making her anxious. sometimes it could be that child'personality is loke this. what you can do is first thing you open up with ur child and discuss if anything is bothering her arrange one to one play date for ur child don't gather too many kids go step by step. give her time to adjust with one child and they go ahead. please don't push your child too much this may harm her psychological growth . instead try to know what attracts her and do that with her 2020-04-09 14:45:30

hi preeti. its very important that you don't attend to her such problems which u know she can handle herself as its will increase her dependence on you. at this age we should try to make her independent. let her do her small things on her own like making her bed, keeping her room clean , helping you with little things related to kutchen or household and never crib if she has not done it well as it will lead to demotivation and she may not try doing it again. for lockdown you can show her news and tell her that all her friends and cousins are staying home ,let her chat with them may be video chat. explain briefly to her about the condition and if you have a terrace you can take her there and play games with her. 2020-04-09 14:58:36

hi loveleen its  really easy to pass a mobile or iPad to an upset child or when you need to attend to something. Sure, it keeps them engaged, they enjoy playing games and watching videos but in the long run it will not help him. gadget addiction may lead to various issues in child. its better u make a fixed routine for him at this quarantine time also as it will keep him in discipline. you fix a time for gadgets and give it to him at that time only. initially he may get cranky but you just stick to what u had set for him,it may take time but he will understand. engage him in doing something creative or whatever he enjoys doing. involve hin with u in household chores spend time story telling, playing board games. kids get bored very quickly with monotonous jobs so try to do something new everyday and introduce 1 activity at a time coz u don't know how long this lockdown is going to be. 2020-04-09 15:06:04

I have a 7 year old son, its very difficult to get him to focus on anything for a stretch of time. He does well when he focuses on his studies, but its kind of one off thing in a long while. Mostly he'll just move from one thing to other without getting anywhere with any of those subjects or sport. I've tried yoga, but again, not very successfully. Anything else we could do?

hi narayan . its really a tough time for all of us. hats off to the children who are able to stay at home for such a long period of time. its better you give him task which are new to him and give him responsibility of certain household chore and tell him that lets see who does his/ her task better way . appreciate him for the help make him feel responsible. kids love to do tasks which are new to them and also carry responsibility 2020-04-09 15:11:52

hello doctor, I have 1 son & 1daughter.. Son is 2years old & Daughter is 4months old.. When i was expecting i slowly diverted my son to my husband (Sleeping, eating, bathing..etc) coz after delivery he should not feel jealous.. As i thought he is not jealous of his sister but he started become more anger, stubborn and crying for even little things also. Please help me out of this situation as I want to change my son. He should not be stubborn and dont show any anger(biting his own fingers and beating his head to the wall). Thankyou..

hi dear. i can very well understand with what u are going through but dear its just a phase and very normal on ur sons part to behave like this. it is very important that u spend quality time with ur son as it is a very big change in his life the attention which he use to enjoy alone has been distributed. its better that u complete imp task of ur daughter's like feding bathing and then handover her to ur husband and spend time with ur son as ur daughter will not compare at this age and also involve ur son with ur daughters chores like playing with her, 2020-04-09 15:16:46
