Q. Last week my younger son Frank, was punished in school because of kicking and throwing things at students... This is Donald, Last week my younger son Frank, was punished in school because of kicking and throwing things at teacher and on a few students. I don’t know why he behaved like that. I got tensed when I heard about this. What to do with him?

A. Well I think it depends whether or not this is a constant behaviour by your son, or it was only a one time event that he had an explanation for. If he tends to get angry and use violence a lot, you should take action, and let him know this is not acceptable by any means. Counsling might work best. If this was a one time thing, you should let your son know this should not happen again, and try preventing him from day to day activities such as meeting friends or using the computer if this happens again.

Q. What kind of energy drink can I drink right before my workout? I need that extra kick at the end of the day. I work out after work but sometimes I'm a little tired.

A. i tried the green tea- it's working but you need to drink a large amount (which is not bad- drinking a lot of fluids is good for you). i take 3 teaspoons of green tea leafs or 3 bags of green tea, pour boiling water on it, let it stay for about 5 minutes and then mix it in a 1.5 liter bottle of water (no sugar. then i have 1.5 liters of green tea. works like a charm (to me any way..).
