Hi My little boy is 4 years and 9 months

My little boy is 4 years and 9 months old and has started he started his preschool from April this year. After 2 weeks of school he had a cold and by may first week he had HFMD.

When the school reopened after summer holidays in June he is affected with cold cough and fever continuously ..

It’s like after a episode of fever he goes to school for week and gets sick again.

Does this mean he a weak immunity or is it normal for a kid to get sick when he starts school..

We don’t give him any junk food ..he has all vegetables and drinks 1 to 1.5 ltr fluid every day ..

Kindly advice if this is normal or we should worry about ..

Thanks in advance

Hi. I adopted a rescued 10 year old male neutered maltese a few weeks ago. He was easily potty trained to use the doggie door . The issue we have is his extreme aggression [?] , growling, snarling, lunging, biting and continuous barking whenever any one comes into my bedroom and/or near my bed. He has totally claimed my king size bed as his own and He will not let anyone near the bed. Even if the person stops at the door and does not enter the room he goes off.. He does it to me also if I just walk near the bed; I am not afraid of him , but it is extremely annoying and wears on my nerves. And he does not look at all like my cute endearing little boy. If company does come he will stay in the bedroom right on the area where I sleep at night and not come out. I feel it may be a way of protecting me, but think it may be territorial aggression, or fear induced aggression??? He was at the shelter for 5 months in a cage and they had gotten him from the pound before that. He has the run of the house but generally stays on my bed, even if I am in the kitchen making food or anything, but he watches every move I make and needs to know where I am at all times. I can calm him down somewhat by rubbing both of his ears and telling him I love him and talking in a calm loving manner. What do you think is going on and How can I break him of this? Is it possible? I did buy a citronella scented spray bark collar , but have not used it yet , [for his constant loud barking when he is acting the this way]. Please help. I have had lots of dogs in my life [I m 71 years old] but nothing like this. Thank you. Sarah

My 13-year-old, who is a healthy boy with no physical issues and living with 2 parents and an older brother in a family with no overriding dysfunctional issues, has had 2 episodes of sleepwalking in the last month. Both occurred in the first couple of hours after he went to sleep. In each case, I just walked him back to bed and tucked him in without incident. Should I be worried. He never did this when he was little.
