The easiest way to prevent cavities is by brushing the teeth well
And the teeth can be brushed well only if you have a good tothbrush
If the variety of toothbrushes available in the market have you confused and wondering which one you should buy for your child - this is the video that will give the answer
Listen to Dr Krishnaraj from Delta Dental Care as he explains which toothbrush is best for your child and why
If your child is getting bullied - in the park, in the school bus or at school - you are sure to have a why me moment in which you question why your child gets bullied when there are so many others
It can be very disturbing if your child is the target of a bully or a bunch of bullies - and if you are wondering why they are picking on him - you need to understand that bullies pick on children who feel small.
Bullies pick children with low self-esteem.
Are you shocked to hear that your child has low self-esteem?
Children often develop low self-esteem and begin to feel small when we constantly criticize everything they do and we constantly compare them with others.
They begin to then feel small.
Even if they are physically big - in their minds they begin to feel small.
And these are the children who bullies are on the look out for.
These are the children they know they will be able to control - because these are the children who are desperate to fit in. These are the children who think being abused and degraded is a way of life.
If you want to keep your child safe from bullies - accept your child for who he is.
Accept him unconditionally.
Tell him that you love him for who he is and not what he does.
Fortify him with your love and acceptance and he will never be picked on by bullies.
A lot of parents I know - feel compelled to look happy and calm all the time in front of their children.
They feel guilty if they lose their tempers and get angry and upset when their children are around.
But this is a classical example of unnecessary guilt.
Children need to be aware of all kinds of emotions.
A truly emotionally healthy child is one who is familiar with both positive and negative emotions and is able to handle both kinds of emotions when he encounters them in himself and others.
A child who has never seen an adult get angry - may be shattered when his teacher scolds him in school
A child who has never encountered conflict at home may not be able to cope when he has a fight with his friends.
In addition a child who has never been exposed to negative emotions - may experience serious guilt when he himself feels angry or sad or upset because he may feel that he is the only one with these terrible feelings.
As parents we want to give our children the best of everything - but however good positive emotions may look - surrounding children in a non-stop flow of smiles and laughter may be harmful as well
One of the cardinal rules of good parenting is honesty
Be honest with your child. Do not pretend.
Your child needs you - just like you are - with your mix of positive and negative emotions. He does not need the person you are pretending to be.
Children who don't eat - often don't eat because they think - eating is something only they are compelled to do.
They don't eat because they don't see anyone eating
They don't eat because they have never seen anyone enjoying food and the eating process
If you eat with enthusiasm when you are hungry - your expressions of pleasure will make your child hungry
If you are hungry - eat.
Do not wait for your child to finish eating before you begin your meal
You know that antibiotics are used to cure bacterial infections
When you take your child to the doctor he says your child has a viral fever and you should just wait and watch.
Then when the fever does not get better after three days and you go back to him - he starts your child on antibiotics and he promptly becomes alright.
And this happens all the time.

Then this is the video you should watch
