Just like “old fashioned” school yard bullying, though, it can be difficult for parents to know just what to do to help prevent and manage cyberbullying.
It’s not new, this “news.” It’s actually the same story – hashed and rehashed, depending on which celebrity or politician or spokesperson is given the megaphone.
Who is in the news talking about vaccines may change from day to day, but one thing has not.
Here are five things about car seats and safety that may surprise you.
As the parent of a new teen driver you worry about lots of things. You worry about your teen’s skills as a new driver. You worry about your teen being distracted by their cell phone, their friends, or about their desire to eat while driving. How can they stay focused on safe driving and the road ahead?
Rather than simply hoping your teen arrives safely, you can begin the conversation now – teaching them about common distractions and how distractions can lead to a crash.
At many of our pediatric primary care clinics, every child from the age of six months to five years who comes in for an annual check up receives a brand new, age-appropriate book for free.
We’ve been participating in this program for 13 years and it’s tremendously valuable to both the doctors and the patients and families.
A fun way to teach kids about how our body uses the nutrients we give it is with a simple experiment involving carnations and food coloring.
You’ll need several white carnations (as many as you’d like to experiment with), food coloring, water and a few vases.
Fill the vases up about a quarter of the way with water. Add about 10 to 20 drops of food coloring and stir it into the water. Cut off about an inch from the bottom of the stem of the carnation and place it in the vase. Now we wait. You can fill several different vases with different coloring if you’d like.
Every few hours, check back on the carnation to see if anything has changed. You might want to have your child keep a small notebook of observations.
