do you give sugar to kids? people are talking about giving up sugar completely, but does that apply to children too?
Instead of sugar you can give them raw-sugar. it's good for health without any side effect.
Its best to get the sugar from nautral resources like fruits and vegetabels. Excess of sugar from outside should be avoided
Sweet cause sugar rush in kids making them hyperactive, avoid giving them till the age of 2 n than avoid giving them anything sweet post 6 pm..honestly u can avoid it but can control their intake
Children younger than 2 years should not have any sugar. All their sugar intake should come from fruits and not processed foods. Kids older than 2 years can be given sweet treats like chocolates and s

my sister's son is 13 and is already very aloof. he rarely speaks at home but is very involved with his friends. how can we make him more interactive at home?
this is that age when children will barely communicate at home and almost always be on their own. a good way to encourage your teen to participate more could be to ask him generally about his day a

my 4 year old has developed a strange habit of eating what other children bring for lunch at school. how can i stop this? it is embarassing. i have spoken about it but can't see any change.
instead of scolding, ask your child what he would like to take for tiffin. that way, you will be giving your child's favourite food and chances are he will eat his own and not take from others. but

our neighbours have newly shifted in and invited us for a housewarming party. we don't know them at all. what are some good gifting ideas?
i think you can give them a set of mismatched funky tea cups. instead of the regular tea set that has all matching tea cups, the different ones always make a colourful statement.
you can gift them a fun key holder that they can use on an everyday basis. also, a quirky lamp would make a fun gift option, as they can use it for light or just as room decor.
I think it will make sense to give something that is not too personal, since they are not really your friends yet, and also something that they can use. maybe you could try giving them one of those
