Your Child's Health: A Pediatric Guide for Parents

Your Child's Health: A Pediatric Guide for Parents This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract Pediatricians know that being a parent is a hard job. Parents get plenty of well-meaning advice along the way, but sifting through it all and knowing whom to believe may leave them feeling confused and beleaguered. Your Child's Health, by Barton Schmitt, is a book that parents will really find helpful. Dr Schmitt has brought his considerable experience in general pediatrics to the writing of a text that is clear and well organized and that emphasizes both preventive care and common sense. The book is divided into five major sections that cover emergencies, trauma, newborn care, behavioral problems, and common illnesses. There is also a brief glossary of medical conditions that require physician input for diagnosis and/or treatment. These are mentioned by medical name (eg, amblyopia and epiglottitis), and then explained in clear terms that can be understood easily by parents. Dr Schmitt has carefully avoided using complex medical terminology http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png American Journal of Diseases of Children American Medical Association
