Parents can take an active role in preventing the risk of breathing disorders in children by reducing the family's exposure to smoke filled environments.
We all want to give our children every advantage in order to make their lives healthy and successful. We enroll them in the best schools and programs to give them the best start we can. Yet, as a family doctor, I often face parents who either refuse or delay vaccinating their children, claiming they are acting in the best interests of the children.
As a father, it breaks my heart to see children who are adversely affected by crime and misfortune. While no child should be touched by such tragedies, the reality is that some are. That’s why I am proud of the effort our community is making to support and comfort these children.
