Since Few days due to cough,cold, fever, which is happening on and off to my kid (son) who is completing 4 yrs of age now. He does npt like to eat anythg, nor he is much interetsed in his favorite food items What could be the reason? or is it because of cold cough etc. He gets scared i feel when he puke or vomits it while coughing at time.   Secondly He has started getting angry on few things now a days, in that he would hit his someone at home or throw things very badly. Want to know the solution for this. At time behave stubborn. But he is very good at other activities & Studies as well. Touchwood that i havent received any complaints from school about him. he is very well outside.

Dear Urvi, I agree with Aashna on the cold and cough bit, it just may be the cold that is making him not want to eat .Even as adults we do not like to eat when we have cold and cough and same is the case with children. Lot of hot soups and steam should do the trick for him for sure. As for the behavior changes, it is very normal for the change to happen at this age. At 4 years he is growing up and wants to do things that are new and have not been attempted before, once he is not able to do these new tasks it frustrates him leading to a tantrum. What worked with my child when she was at the same stage is role playing, rather than telling her that when she screams or hits me it is not a good thing to do , i would always ask her if i was hitting her and yelling at her when i was bugged or pressed for time , How would that make her feel? It took some time to break her out of this scenario but it did help... you could try this approach and see if it works with your son. Hope this helps

Hey Urvi, if your son is behaving differently suddenly, there may be something that could have triggered this change in him. Has there been any big changes around him? You could sit him down and talk to him about this. You may tell what you expect from him and how he should and should not behave. You could reward him when he behaves well and ignore him when he tries to throw a tantrum. You may calmly explain that hitting someone or throwing things is something good boys don't do. There are some wonderful suggestions related to toddler behaviour in the following Talk. Please take a look at the following link https://www.parentune.com/parent-talk/naughty-kiddo/293 Hope it helps :)

Hi Urvi. Your son may have lost his appetite due to the repeated cold and cough. The taste buds within the mouth get affected during a bout of cold. Please do not force him to eat. Let him eat however little he wants to but make sure to offer him plenty of fluids as he needs to stay hydrated. He will probably resume his normal diet once he feels better. You may assure him that it is ok to throw up and if he feels the urge to do so. My daughter always throws up when she has cough. I have shouted at her a few times, but noticed that it made things difficult for her. So, since the last few times, I have assured her that it is normal to feel pukey and throw up but she must tell me so that I can take her to the bathroom or give her a pan to use. Re-assuring your son will help him. To help him feel better, you could give him chicken or veg soup with some pepper. Soup really soothes the throat.
