Q. At what age can alcoholism begin? My son is 13. He drinks too much. every day he drinks, sometimes more than one time each day. can it be alcoholism already, so young? what can I do to stop this?

A. I agree with all the answers that have been given to you, stop being a friend & start being a parent, thats a start, getting him in somewhere before it's too late is the second step, you don't it will only get worse, pretending the talk will do it, no way it won't, no matter what in the end he will thank you & always be your son & friend but you as the parent have to get him professional help now, I wouldn't wait.

A. from trial and error of 5000 years...because the chines people are a very dedicated people- they perfected it to an art. not all the arguments they bring to the success of a treatment make sense, but if it works it doesn't really matters no? but then again- it also doesn't mean you should go and be a chines medicine freak..

Q. Why do litlle kids' nose's begin to bleed?

A. A nose starts to bleed when one of the small veins in its lining bursts. This is usually caused by something completely harmless, such as the child picking their nose, blowing it too hard or having their nose knocked while playing. Another reason could be that the child has pushed something inside their nose. Some children have veins that are closer to the mucous membrane of their nose than other children. Because the veins are very close to the skin, they are more likely to burst when the child picks, blows or rubs their nose, or plays rough games.
