When is a sniffle just a cold and when should you call a doctor? Are the joint pains just due to a growth spurt or is your teen dealing with something more serious?
Nothing can replace a careful consultation with your child’s doctor or specialist, but having some basic information can be reassuring. With that in mind, we are providing information about some accidents, illnesses or medical conditions that your child might experience. These are intended to help guide your understanding, not make a diagnosis.
The American Academy of Pediatrics has a great community resource available to help parents and families learn more about a child's healthy living. Just visit www.healthychildren.org to learn more.
If you have questions about any of the information you read here, talk to your family care physician or contact us.
For caregivers specifically interested in guiding their child away from violence at any age, please download and read this helpful guide. Prevention starts early and violence is a learned activity so it can be prevented.
