Every fall, many children develop a runny nose, itchy, puffy eyes, and attacks of sneezing. Could they be suffering from fall allergies?Every fall, many children develop a runny nose, itchy, puffy eyes, and attacks of sneezing. Allergies and asthma often start in childhood and continue throughout life. Although neither can be cured, with proper care they can usually be kept under control. Allergies are caused by the body's reaction to substances called allergens, which trigger the immune system to react to harmless substances as though they were attacking the body. So, how do you know if your symptoms represent an allergy or just a simple cold? Some allergies are easy to identify by the pattern of symptoms that follows exposure to a particular substance. But others are subtler, and may masquerade as other conditions. Special guest, Dr. David Hill and Melanie Cole, MS, discuss fall allergies and some common clues that could lead you to suspect your child may have an allergy.
Bullying Happens. Is your child being bullied? Or are they the bully?Bullying happens. It might occur at school... in the halls, at lunch, or in the bathroom, when teachers are not there to see what is going on. When adults are not watching... going to and from school, on the playground, or in the neighborhood. Through e-mail or instant messaging... rumors are spread or nasty notes are sent. Regardless of the venue, bullying is when one child picks on another child again and again. Usually children who are being bullied are either weaker or smaller, are shy, and generally feel helpless. Both girls and boys can be bullies. Generally, bullies target children who cry, get mad, or easily give in to them. There are 3 types of bullying. Physical—hitting, kicking, pushing, choking, punching. Verbal—threatening, taunting, teasing, hate speech. Social—excluding victims from activities or starting rumors about them. Bullying is different from fighting or teasing. In this segment of Healthy Children, Dr David Hill, MD, and Melanie Cole, MS, discuss how to talk with your child about bullying. Even if you don't think your child is bullied, a bully, or a bystander, you will be helping to protect your child by tuning into this show and opening the dialog with your child.
Do you spend enough time reading with your kids? It could be the most productive time you spend together.Your days are busy, to say the least. They get so hectic, that you sometimes forget to spend that quality time with your kids. What better way to do that to than to read to and with them? When they're babies, reading to them helps them to learn speech, and it is also very soothing. When they are toddlers, reading to them helps them to learn words and feel cuddled by mommy or daddy. You may soon realize as a parent that reading time becomes soothing for you as well. It's a time to forget everything on the to-do list, and listen to a good story. Special guest, Dr. Shelly Flais, MD, joins Melanie Cole, MS, to share all the reasons why reading to your kids is truly one of life's greatest pleasures.
How do you keep twins on a schedule? Dr. Shelly Flais has important information that only a pediatrician with twins herself can offer.Even with years of experience working as a pediatrician, Shelly Vaziri Flais, MD, FAAP, was nervous about what lay ahead when she was told she was pregnant with twins. Now, several years into parenting her twin boys, Dr. Flais is sharing her wisdom and experience as a mom and her expertise as a doctor to help other parents prepare for and raise multiples with confidence. With insightful stories from her own experiences, coupled with important information only a pediatrician can offer, Raising Twins can help you deal with your little ones. For instance, you should care for your healthy multiples just like any other infant. But, from the very beginning, it is important that you recognize your babies are separate individuals. If they are identical, it is easy to treat them as a "package deal," providing them with the same clothing, toys, and quality of attention. As similar as they may appear physically, emotionally they are different. And in order to grow up happy and secure as individuals, they need you to support those differences. As one twin explained, "We're not twins. We're just brothers who have the same birthday!" If you're a parent to multiples, or parents who are expecting multiples, you do not want to miss this informative segment.
You just found out you're having twins! What do you do now?You just found out you're having twins! What do you do now? Having twins (or other multiples, such as triplets) means much more than simply having two babies at once. This challenge goes beyond having two or three times the work or pleasure. Twins and other multiples are often born early and therefore tend to be smaller than the average newborn; so you may need to consult your pediatrician even more frequently than you would with a single baby. Feeding twins, whether by breast or bottle, also requires some special strategies. Your doctor can provide advice and support in regards to this. There may be added financial pressures upon the family as well, spending a lot more money on diapers, clothing, food, car seats, and dozens of other items–and perhaps needing a larger family car or even a larger home. Special guest, Dr. Shelly Flais, MD, joins Melanie Cole, MS, to discuss all the concerns surrounding having twins and how you can navigate the seemingly complicated situation that is going to be so much greater than you can imagine.
Which matters more: diet or exercise? Maybe its both.Many people follow a special diet in an effort to lose weight, treat a medical condition, feel healthier or simply to follow a trend. In fact, a study from earlier this year showed that 20 percent of Americans reported they were dieting to lose weight. No doubt many more have changed what they eat for other health-related reasons. This is smart, since nutrition plays an important role in body weight and other health indicators such as blood glucose and cholesterol. But if you only change your diet, you are missing important benefits of another health behavior – regular physical activity. Join Dr. Brian Parr, PhD, and Melanie Cole, MS, as they breakdown the diet/exercise conundrum to help you get in shape AND lose weight.
BMI has been a long-time measure of weight, but could it also serve as a measure of overall health?BMI is the most commonly used measure of body fat, and has widely been thought of as a very valid indicator of obesity. But could BMI also serve as a measure of your overall health? BMI is so widely used because it is simple to measure – it only requires knowing height and weight – and because it is a good indicator of body weight and health risks. That said, it's not perfect. One of the biggest criticisms of BMI is that it can't distinguish between fat and non-fat tissue; meaning that a person could have a high BMI but not be overly fat. The elevated BMI could be due to excess muscle, as is common in athletes. BMI does not differentiate between muscle and fat. However, in most cases, people who have a high BMI do have a high percentage of fat on their body. So how can that factor in to how healthy you are overall? Special guest, Dr. Brian Parr, PhD, and Melanie Cole, MS, discuss BMI as a measure of health and how it can help you to get fit and well.
