As a mother of three active children, I know how often accidents happen while playing sports or just simply playing in the backyard. Not a summer goes by without my kids experiencing some sort of minor trauma. Children can be particularly susceptible to sports injuries, especially children under the age of eight who tend to be less coordinated and have a slower reaction time than older children.

Sleep. The recommended amount of sleep within a 24-hour period (including naptime) is 12 – 14 hours for toddlers, 11 – 13 hours for pre-schoolers, and 10 – 11 hours for school-aged kids. Most American children are not getting the recommended amount of sleep, which, in turn, affects their daytime behavior and school performance.
Allergies rank as the fifth leading chronic disease in the United States.
Over-the-counter (OTC) medications may include a pain and fever reducer, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, antihistamines, decongestants and/or cough suppressants.
The immediate reaction to a stress, or the alarm phase, is usually short-lived, but, eventually, continued stress can lead to diabetes, heart disease and hypertension, and ongoing stress can weaken the heart, blood vessels, adrenal glands and immune system. In other words, it is important to manage stress!
The recommended amount of sleep within a 24-hour period is 14 – 15 hours for infants; 12 – 14 hours for toddlers; 11 – 13 hours for pre-schoolers and 10 – 11 hours for school-aged kids. Most American children are not obtaining the recommended amount of sleep, which, in turn, is affecting their daytime behavior including school performance.
