Hi Priti, it is absolutely all right to ride a two wheeler if you are planning for a baby. Once the pregnancy is confirmed, get yourself checked with a gynecologist and follow her instructions whether to ride a two wheeler or not.Good luck!!

Hi Rajiv, cough since two weeks is not a good sign. Please refer to the good pediatrician as soon as possible. This may be a minor thing but you should not delay the medical attention. Get him checked as per doctor’s advice.

Hi Rajiv, kids learn to write and read by the age of 7-8 or in second grade. By the age of 4 years your son should be recognizing alphabets and numbers. He may be able to read and write alphabets and number by the age of 5. Have patience.The key to help him read and write is to more and more exposure to the language. You can read story books to him. Show him charts and picture books. Make writing exercises interesting by including audio visual clips and youtube tutorials.Good Luck.
