    Weekly Topic Inspiration: Children's Health

    Whether you have children or not, writing about children’s health is a great thing to do. We were, after all, all children at some point, and most certainly we have some children in our lives, so take this week’s theme as an opportunity to write about things like children’s nutrition, common kids’ injuries, pediatricians, infant health, child allergies, and the like! Stop by the WTI forum thread for community support and search-friendly titles to use: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/90630

    I agree that children's health issues are very important.  This is a great topic.  A child may not appear to be seriously ill, but then before you know it you may be in the emergency room facing life a threatening situation.  We can all contribute something of value by writing on this subject.

    One good way to stimulate a child's mind is to encourage them to read more. I'm talking about all children, including ones who need extra help. First,ask your child what they like to read about.You can get your child to read more when there's a lot of what they like available. Spend some time with them and  see what a difference it makes! Your child is most likely enjoying the extra attention you're giving them.  Try to Introduce new ideas to keep things from getting boring. Some games for your child's age group would be nice to reinforce what they've already learned. It gets even better when you have a computer to play those games on! You could invite a friend or two to play the games or read with your child.  The friends might like the books and want to read them too. When your child can show his friends how to play the games he gets a boost in his self esteem. What you don't want to do, however, is push too hard to get your child to read. It's okay to take a break for a day. There's  no need to rush this at all. Learning to read should be compared to a flower.  When it  slowly blooms in the springtime should be how fast you take to get good results.

    Tips for Raising a Child with Special Needs

    This is a children's health topic I wish I'd have had access when my younger son was born having suffered a stroke in utero.  Even though I have an uncle with Down Syndrome and am familiar with the challenge of caring for someone with special needs, I never understood it from a parent's perspective until then.  There are a number of ways to approach this topic, from how to interact with medical professionals to seeking out support groups.  Good topic here.

    Greeting to all, I am happy to say that I have a kid and I do care for him the most. Basically, I am a 35-years old woman and I have one child and his age is 4 years. So in my opinion between 1 to 10 years, we need to take care of the child the most because at this age the child is unable to think properly. Also, the child is not able to understand what correct of him or her. In Moreover, you need to get the child check up every week and if possible then give him or her only healthy diet. It really helps your child to become more energetic and powerful.  Also at this age, it is very common to get some medical issues such as allergy, fever, pain problem etc. so that time you need to protect your child against this issue by providing the healthy diet. Basically, we are a parent and we need to pay attention to what our children eat and to teach them proper nutrition. Hence, this is common things that help you to protect your child against unwanted issues and get more healthy and happy.
