Answer . Without marriage, you are the head of household for yourself and your child. That is because you are both separate entities.
Yes this is the best thing to do if you have tried everything else. I would say use a clipper instead of a razor and use guard #1. This will make a thin carpet of hair on your son's head. Using a razor on your son's head is not advisable as they may be unseen moles which will put your son in pain

My 19 year old son suffered head injury due to a car accident cant find life insurance can you help?
If your son does not have any insurance coverage for his injury, there are alternatives for you to receive financial compensation, depending on the circumstances: If he was a passenger in the car accident that gave him his head injury, you may file a claim against the driver of the car he was a p…assenger of. In some cases, some car insurance policies also cover passengers of the vehicle. If he was the driver of the car and the accident was because of a negligent driver, a personal injury lawsuit should be filed against the driver in order to recover damages for his injury. Lastly, if he was at fault, you may consider: applying for Supplemental Security Income benefits or whatever disability benefits are offered in your state. ( Full Answer )

Normally, as an infant, the soft-spot on the head is an openingbetween the skull plates that allows the skull to flex duringbirth. However, this normally closes up at 18 months old, so it isimportant to check with the doctor, as this could become an issue.

The soft spots on a baby's head are called fontanelles. There are two of them, the larger one close to the front of the head, and a smaller one that closes soon after birth further back on the head.
Your four year old toppled a basket on top of him in a store and hit his head He has a soft large lump on the back of his head but is playing and doing everything normal Should you see a doctor?
Only if you are independantly wealthy and enjoy throwing money away. Children have been sustaining bumps and bruises for thousands of years but only recently has the medical community been so powerful as to convince parents that they need to be consulted for every bump and scrape.. You will know if… your child is in need of medical attention. As long as he/she is behaving normally and not in any pain then a trip to the doctor is a waste of time.. In fact, it might be dangerous. The modern western medical community practises a form of cover-up medicine whereby they flood people's systems with unnecessary and often harmful chemicals (medicines?) to alleve every minor annoyance. All this accomplishes is a weakening of the body's ability to heal itself without outside assistance. This is partuiculalry harmful with children whose immune system can and often does become compromised and never develops properly. Look at the massive increase in allergies in young people today...ask your grandparents if they have allergies...in most cases the answer will be no. ( Full Answer )
Yes, that's possible. You would perform the usual 30 compressions and 2 breaths for one rescuer. and 15 compressions and 2 breaths for 2 rescuers.
The "soft spot" is the area on top of the head where the bones of the skull have not quite joined. During pregnancy, the skull develops sort of like a jigsaw puzzle; it's not all one bone, but rather many bones that eventually meet and fuse. Some bones meet and fuse before the baby is born. Others f…use after birth to allow room for the brain's tremendous growth over the first year. More than 50 percent of the total growth of the head occurs in this first year of life. If all the bones fused early, there would be no room for the brain as it grows. There are often several "soft spots" present at birth, but most are so small and last for so little time, that parents are unaware of them. But by two months, only two of these spots should be present: . The smaller is the posterior fontanel, on the back part of the top of the head. It's usually difficult to find at two months of age and should be completely gone (because the bones have fused) by four months. . The anterior fontanel is the one most parents recognize as the soft spot. It's on top of the head toward the front. Four bones come together at this spot, but, because of their rounded corners, they don't quite meet. This soft spot may close as early as nine months of age or as late as two years. The average is between 12 to 14 months. So, what does it mean when the soft spot seems to have closed up early? Most of the time, it means that it is still present but is difficult to feel because a tough, fibrous cartilage membrane develops over the soft spot as it is closing. This membrane can make it difficult to determine if the soft spot is still open. However, if the soft spot does indeed close early, it could be a condition called craniosynostosis, which can cause some problems. Craniosynostosis occurs in about one in 2,500 babies and usually requires surgery. If left untreated, compression of the brain may eventually occur and the other bones of the skull become deformed as they grow. This may cause vision difficulties and significant disfigurement of the face. ( Full Answer )
These "soft spots," called fontanels, are actually made of tough but flexible cartilage. A baby's brain grows very quickly, and this flexible cartilage lets the skull expand to make room. If the baby doesn't have this then they have it you just dont know where it is.
personally i do because in todays world alot of people are homosexual and at the tender age of seven they could get confused when they here the word gay or see two men kissing on soaps. Also, even though they are only seven, a constant name to be called in school is " gay boy " or " homo " which is …rude but it happens, and if they do not know what it means they have no defense or way to stand up forethemselves especially if they say " what is gay ?". If they are told they should be told sensibly by their parents as it is easy to get confused as i should know I'm only 12. It depends on what you think. If you think your kid deserves to know then you should tell them. Soon, your child may be meeting children that are gay and they should be prepared to face the fact that their friend that is the same sex as them could start having a crush on them. ( Full Answer )
The soft spots are known as fontanelles. There are two of them and they may vary in size a little bit. The one at the back of the head is usually smaller than the other and triangular in shape. This is known as the posterior fontanelle. The other one is larger and is on the top of the head. It is di…amond or kite shaped and is known as the anterior fontanelle. ( Full Answer )

Is there a problem if an adult notices a soft spot on the top of their head although there is no pain associated with the soft spot?
This is called the Fontanelle and is a gap in the bones of the top of the skull. When a baby passes through the birth canal the skull bones overlap each other like rose petals,During early life the skull bones unite along sutures and the fontanelle usually closes completely.You may be a rare case of… this not completely finishing. The brain is protected by a tough membrane called the Dura with a layer of skin on top. It is unlikely to give you trouble but I would mention it to a medic next time you visit . ( Full Answer )

Soft spots, or fontanelles, are spaces in the skull that have not matured into bone yet. They allow the baby's brain to grow and make the skull more flexible so the baby can move down the birth canal. By the time the child is 2 years old their skull will be fully developed and the soft spots will be… gone. ( Full Answer )

You shouldn't. If he did something TERRIBLE to you... then just warn him... a simple warning (not a threat) just a warning you will do something he is afraid of. Maybe sneak in his room at night wearing a scarish costume, scare him to death, run to ur room, and keep doing that again and again each n…ight until he stops messing with you. (but be sure he doesn't know its you.) ( Full Answer )
If a 7 year old boy's testicle hasn't descended yet, it is important to take him to a doctor for evaluation. Usually if a boy's testicles haven't descended by 1 to 2 years of age, they will undergo surgery to place them in the scrotum. A testicle that remains in either the inguinal canal or in the a…bdominal cavity is more prone to developing cancer later in life. ( Full Answer )

Fontanelles. These allow for the bony plates of the baby's skull to 'flex' during birth
"Fontanelle" (sometimes spelled "fontanel".) There are actually four of them, but the anterior fontanelle (directly on top) is usually the most noticeable.
The soft spot on a baby's head closes as he or she grows. Since thehead is still developing as an infant, it will gradually come intoits own as the child grows.
