CHILDRENS HEALTH CHAT ROOM - Arkansas PEER SUPPORT
Health & Help Chat has committed this portion of the web site to parent-to-parent support dealing with all aspects of children's health. On this children's health web page, you can join the Children's Health Chat Room, children's health forums, and children's health social network.
Parenting is the most rewarding but stressful job out there. Having healthy kids who can be wrapped up in the safety of their own beds each night is a parents dream. Therefore, Health & Help Chat decided it was important to connect parents to each other, to chat about their children's health issues, nutrition, and general well-being. Here at Health & Help Chat, you will find an online community filled with parents, just like you, who want to know how to make it easier and safer for their little one when sending their child with a peanut allergy to school for the first time, how to help their teenager with their acne, what the best way to treat an infant with colic is, or even how to support a child suffering from something more serious, such as seizures.
The first thing many parents think about when they are about to have a child is - please let he or she be healthy. Then, once this perfect baby is placed in your arms, you count their fingers and toes, and watch their perfect mouth form a yawn as they close their blessed little eyes to rest. A silent prayer is said... "Please keep my child healthy."
Although, according to statistics the, "Percent of school-aged children 5-11 years of age who are in excellent or very good health: 82%,"1 there are many seemingly minor illnesses that can strike a child and worry any parent. For example the, "Percent of school-aged children 5-11 years of age who missed 11 or more days of school in the past 12 months because of illness or injury: 5.1%"1 From the major children's illnesses, like childhood diabetes, to the minor illnesses, such as, a cold, a fever, allergies, or a simple fall, can strike fear into the hearts of many parents. This portion of Health & Help Chat has been established so that you can lean on other mom's and dad's, both give and gain advice and even give one another tips on parenting from infancy, through early childhood, onward to adolescence and the teenage years. Seek advice on potty-training that little boy or girl who does not seem to have any interest in anything but their diaper; or find out how another parent was able to get rid of that pacifier or thumb sucking for good.
