[ - ] Has anyone gone to the orthodontist Marc Lemchen? I hear he is the best but curious about the results. I read an article in Vogue about a woman in fed forties who was happy with her result. My 12 year old DD is being treated and I worry that I didn't choose well. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Does his treatment style have a "look"? For example in my hometown there were two orthodontists everyone used-one gave a very narrow arch with super straight almost inward canted teeth, while the other gave a broader more natural style. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] What could this headache be? I hardly ever have one, and usually very light, goes away after a while... but had this since 2pm today, feels like a lot of pressure all around the top of my head... Took one 500mg Tylenol at 4, seemed to help a bit, but then headache came back... I can't even concentrate on what I'm doing. Had a colonoscopy yesterday morning, so had to do the prep Monday night into yesterday, but I don't think this is related, otherwise I would have had it sooner... also have been drinking a lot to replenish fluids lost, but doesn't seem to help. Other thing I can think of, was at the hair salon around noon, to get color... but do this every other month and I don't see how it would give me a headache. Sorry, but I worry because this is new for me. Any advice? Natural remedy? Not sure that I can take another Tylenol after just 4hrs. Thanks 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I asked the doctor today around 3, after it started, but he thought this was not related... although I wonder if the medicine they gave me for sedation could have caused it. Although why would this come up after 24hrs... doesn't make sense. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] My kindergartener told me tonight that he spends recess everyday by herself. She didnt seem upset about it, just said it matter of fairly when I asked her which friends at school she played w at recess. She socialized really well when we are in the park with one or two of her friends, or if a friend comes to our house. But she is at a big public school and I think unstructured recess in a huge school is really over whelming to her. She also is not as confident physically as the other kids which I think plays into it to. Oh well. Any btdt advice appreciated! Am I worryin for nothing? 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

My son said the same thing to me (also in K) just last week. I think recess is seriously overwhelming to them right now! I did email his teacher to ask for her thoughts (so far she said she would check it out) but in the interim I'm trying to set up a few playdates for him so he might make a bit of a connection with a few kids in his class.

I think these are the kinds of problems that can work themselves out in time. I have found myself getting in a twist about things like this with my kids and then they solve it on their own and I wonder why I spent time thinking about it.

Aww I am sorry that is a tough conversation for parent ears. My dd is now 12 and in her younger elementary years we had that talk peroodically. She sounds a lot like your dd and, while still a somewhat reserved kid has really become more comfortable ina variery of social settings in the laat few years. Agree with above poster not to sweat it if ahe seems happy. Also, at that you g age a lot of kids do kind of play by themselves but alongside a bunch of others, monkey bars or whatever. Just keep givi g her chances to connect with kids ina range of aettings, bet she will be fine. [ Reply | More ]
