While today’s technology has opened up a whole new world of possibilities, it has also made bullying a constant concern.


A child’s mental health is just as important as their physical health, and sometimes a little understanding can be the best band-aid.


Food like juice and cookies need to be thought of as what they are, a treat. Otherwise, what may seem like a harmless snack can end up having long-term consequences.


As a parent or caregiver, protecting your child or the child you care for is about keeping your emotions in check.


Being able to recognize the early signs of depression—even in a young child—and teaching them how they can deal with those feelings is one of the best tools you can give them.


As a parent or caregiver, there can be so many things to be focused on as your child grows that sometimes you can overlook the early signs of autism.


Back Burner
Kids might not be able to avoid hot water as easily as a flame, so it’s always good be mindful of hot liquids throughout your home.


Whether it is preventing access to a relative’s medication or being mindful about the kinds of medicine our child is prescribed, it is important to always be aware of what our children are consuming.
