ADHD in Children

ADHD in Children

We hear of so many signs and signals from teachers, friends and family that go unnoticed in our children's behavior, or we make excuses before finally taking our child to the doctor to be tested and possibly diagnosed with ADHD.

Why Children Bite

Why Children Bite

Kids bite for a number of reasons—and most of them aren’t intentionally malicious.

They’re in pain. When babies bite, typically it’s because they’re teething.  They’re just doing it to relieve the pain of their swollen, tender gums.

They’re exploring their world.  Very young children use their mouths to explore, just as they use their hands.  Just about everything infants or toddlers pick up eventually winds up in their mouths.  Kids this age aren’t yet able to prevent themselves from biting the object of their interest.

Amoeba Awareness

Amoeba Awareness

When you see the three letters P.A.M, what is the first thing that springs to your mind?  It probably is'nt the words Primary Amoebic Meningoencephalitis. Primary Amoebic Meningoencephalitis, also known as P.A.M, is a disease people don’t understand, and have probably never heard of until someone they know contracts it. P.A.M. is caused by the amoeba Naegleria fowleri which can be found in warm fresh water around the world. Naegleria fowleri infections are rare and devastating. Since 2004, there have been 34 infections reported in the U.S. All but two were fatal.

Choosing The Right Childcare

Choosing The Right Childcare

As a parent, you know what's best for your child. When considering childcare for your child, don't just look at the group they will be entering the school in. You need to think about the future. While viewing the facility ask yourself....

(1) Will this school help to potty train my child?

(2) What is the main focus of the school, education or play?

(3) What will my child need to know for kindergarten and does the school prepare them for this?
