For more than forty years, Taking Care of Your Child has been the go-to resource for parents and caregivers. It offers the most recent information on critical childcare issues, from what to do in the event of a minor injury to everyday issues such as common allergies and ailments. Covering everything from birth to infancy and toddlerhood, to first concerns, growth and development, and the most common injuries and concerns through adolescence, Taking Care of Your Child is easy to use, even in a crisis: you can simply look up a symptom to find a complete explanation of probable causes, how to treat the problem at home, and when to see a doctor. With the very latest on ADHD, autism, breast-feeding, childhood depression and obesity, discipline, immunizations, and more, the book also features sections on youth sports and head trauma, genetic screening, and minimizing risks of medical procedures.
