Hair Transplant

Hair transplant surgery is fast becoming a popular choice of procedure for both men and women who have been affected by hair loss. Losing your hair, especially for men, might appear to be a minor problem but there are many people who find it difficult to accept. This leads to frustration, anxiety and depression. Some people find that they become isolated as a result and are unable to discuss their feelings about this with anyone for fear of ridicule. But losing your hair is no laughing matter.

How Can I Interest My 3-year-old Son in Potty Training

QUESTION

My son just turned three. I know that the average for boys to be potty trained is 38 months and we aren't there yet, but how do I get him to want to use the potty? He can use it, he's done it before. He's not at all scared of it.

We've tried rewards -- candy, sticker chart, lots of enthusiasm, calling grandma. He's no longer interested or excited by any of that. He gets extremely upset if you don't put a diaper on him. "Let's wear big boy underwear today," "let's try pull ups today" is always met by NO!
