    During a lecture at college we were told to ask about dreams Mum had during pregnancy and also about the circumstances going on around conception in case of any trauma then with Mum or Dad.

          It might not be too difficult to treat children for an acute disease but for a problem with a mental aspect and associated chronic elements it can be different. Looking at your questions you are not asking your patient, the child, but the parents.

          Rule number one ask the patient and if the baby that cannot communicate look at the symptoms it is normal an acute problem at this age. What is the point to ask what fear do your child have you will get the reply the fear of the parents and not the child. Same question for a baby ??? what answer do you expect.

          Children are under great influence of the parents and asking them you will not get the symptoms of the child. Ask the child and without the parents and ask the parents without the child. Sometimes you do not have to treat the child but the family ; the mother or father the child is ok. Do not put it in all a in a standard QUESTIONNAIRE FOR CHILDREN see what you have in front out you and treat what you see not what the parents say.

            Dr. Mose, I very much like your critique of this questionaire. I likewise immediately found it wanting and quickly dismissed it before reading even 10 questions.

            Being expert at English and noticing you're German, I take the liberty to correct it for a better read as an editor would do to preserve it for posterity in the best form for easy comprehension. These are all very good points, sir.

            I furthermore thank you for contributing to this site I've poured so much into for years with very little but occasional help, by which I mean to encourage you to post here with alacrity. I'll attempt to do this editing of them if you do.

            Rule number one: Ask the patient, and if the [if it is a] baby who cannot communicate, look at the symptoms [observation]. It is normally an acute problem at this age.

            For instance, what is the point of asking the parents what fears their child has? You will get in reply the fears of the parents, not the child. Do you ask the same questions of a baby? What answers do you expect? ["Goo-goo, mama, dada?"]

            Children of the age of speech are under great influence from the parents, and asking them these questions in the presence of the parents will not get you the child's symptoms. Instead, ask the child without the parents around, and ask the parents without the child's presence. Sometimes, you do not have to treat the child but the family: The mother or father. The child is okay.

            You most especially do not want to pose your inquires from a standard questionaire for children. Instead, observe what you have in front out you, and treat what you see, not what the parents say.

            Very good, sir! I offer just one group of comments before I actually examine it myself and possibly respond.

            As Hahnemann correctly stated in the ORGANON, there are three sources of information, and they exist in the following hierarchy of importance somewhat akin to being in orders of magnitude, meaning that each is essentially 10 times more important than the following source: the patient, observations by the physician and those of attendants -- in this case, the parents.

              I again didn't read them all, not because I found disapproval of anything in particular but instead because I disapprove of questionaires in general. They're wrong for many reasons, too.

              You let them speak. If you carve that in stone, you get an idea how important it is. It's of tremendous importance to not direct this process. Asking questions like "What's the problem?" and then repeatedly asking those like "What else?" will suffice with most patients. They want to tell you their complaints or they wouldn't have come to you. Most patients will tell you what you need to know if you follow Hahnemann's advice and directives about case taking and do this:

              1. Let them speak;

              2. Interrupt only to insure you accurately record what they initially say;

              3. Repeatedly ask questions like "What else?" to get a full rendition of their complaints;

              4. Once they're through -- remembering that they often remember things at any point in this process -- ask initial questions to make points clear, going down your list of their statements until you're satisfied you understand what's bothering them about each one, these questions being rudimentary compared to in-depth inquiries that follow;

              5. Ask questions about each complaint to cover the fact that well-recorded symptoms often have four parameters: location, sensation, modalities and concomitants -- it being a sure source of grief to fail to gather anything important about each symptom;

              6. Ask questions about parts of the body and issues of life (that's a big subject in the extreme) not mentioned, this normally being an extremely long element of the process and frequently necessitating multiple sessions unless the case is clearly indicating a particular drug; and assuming I haven't left anything out, which is unlikely

              7. Never ask yes or no questions since it's a sure way to get wholly misleading information.

              I am not at all opposed to prescribers having these kinds of handy questions readily available to them as aids in taking cases. That is, however, quite different from questionaires. Avoid those like the plague.

              There are a great many of these questions a prescriber can ask, and we tend to collect them until they're unwieldy and number in the hundreds. The most helpful list of them I've ever seen directly supplement Hahnemann's listing in the ORGANON. Those additional particular questions I refer to came from Jost Kunzli (generally agreed to have been a master homeopath) and his long-time student and colleague Robert M. Schore, both MDs. They're in one of the issues of HOMEOTHERAPY: JOURNAL OF CLASSICAL HOMEOPATHY (published by The Hahnemann Foundation) in which Dr. Schore served as editor about 30 years ago. The National College of Naturopathic Medicine has a full collection. That's a good lead the wise will follow.

                    I am agree with you kristienece2, it is necessary to solve problem of your child. He should always come out from fear and be fearless. For that parents do some special things for their child.

                        During a session at higher education we were informed to ask about goals Mum had during maternity and also about the conditions going on around perception in situation of any stress then with Mum or Dad.

                          Thatís a great move; these things really help and make things easier than before. If we could get rid of being stressed we could find solutions for many problems.

                            It's spelled Betelgeuse (and most astronomers insist beetle juice is an uncategorically wrong pronunciation in any case) and it is somewhere around 600 light years away, certainly not millions of light years away which would place it outside our galaxy. But no, we can't see it closer to as it exists "now" simply because the only way we can tell anything about it is via its light and other electromagnetic radiation, and those all travel at the same speed. It's possible, though unlikely, that it has already gone supernova already, but we won't know a thing about it until that light arrives. There's no device we can build to allow us to see that "early" since it would break much of modern physics based on relativity which forbids it. https://www.spectroradiometer.ch/
