Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

, Sorry about this issue of unruly children. You may sure get them referred to pediatrician and then to pediatric psychiatrist and possible medication.

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

It sure is difficult raising kids especially if there is no partner so please also consider giving away one or two of them .
