Have a Hazard-Free Halloween
Oct. 13, 2014 - When we think of Halloween, we picture children laughing in colorful costumes, jack-o'-lanterns glowing in house windows, and buckets brimming with candy and treats. Experts warn, however, that this fun-filled night can pose safety hazards.
An alternative is to throw a Halloween party and invite kids, rather than have them out on the street. If your kids will be going door-to-door trick or treating, however, some precautions can make the evening safe and enjoyable for everyone.
Guidelines for Raising Smoke-Free Kids
Oct. 6, 2014 - Every day more than 4,000 U.S. teenagers try smoking, and nearly a third of them will become regular smokers. Parents can take practical steps to keep their children smoke-free. Initially, young people begin smoking to look cool without understanding the addictive nature of tobacco. But a person who starts smoking when young is more likely to continue the habit into adulthood. And quitting smoking later in life is a difficult task to overcome.
Child Health Emergencies
Sept. 29, 2014 - Having a very sick or severely injured child is a parent's worst nightmare. If it happened to your child, would you know the best way to go about getting treatment? Knowing when to call an ambulance is important.
Avoid Soccer Injuries in Your Kids
Sept. 22, 2014 - The school team. The town team. The travel team. If your young soccer player is on the field for several games or practices a week, it may be too much. Most injuries occur in the 10- to 14-year-old age group. Younger players are more susceptible to injury because they're still growing. Many soccer-related injuries are treated by health care professionals.
Give Young Athletes Plenty of Fluids
Sept. 15, 2014 - Odds are you wouldn't let your daughter play catcher in a baseball game without a facemask. You wouldn't send your son onto a football field without a helmet, either. But here's a sports precaution you may overlook -- getting kids to drink water and other healthy fluids.
Our bodies are about 60 percent water. During hot weather, if young athletes don't get enough water to replace what is lost through perspiration, they face the risk of dehydration. Dehydration means not having enough fluids in the body to function normally and can lead to serious heat-related illness.
Five Tips for Handling a Bad Report Card
Sept. 8, 2014 - By third grade, your child's warm and fuzzy progress report will likely give way to the cold, hard, letter-grade report card. A disappointing grade can become an emotional tripwire for parent and child alike.
The best advice? Don't react with disappointment. A poor grade is often a red flag for a potential problem area, not a measure of your child's worth or your parenting skills. Collect your thoughts and respond in a calm, clear way:
All Family Time Is Quality Time
Sept. 2, 2014 - Don't feel guilty about the amount of "quality time" you spend with your family. Some experts are beginning to shun the quality time movement for something much more basic.
Healthy Diets Overview
Aug. 25, 2014 - Eating healthy is an important part of a healthy lifestyle and is something that should be taught to children at a young age. The following are some general guidelines for helping your child eat healthy. It is important to discuss your child's diet with your child's health care provider before making any dietary changes or placing your child on a diet:
