Sportsmanship - If you have children active in sports, you've probably experienced some shocking behavior. No, not from the children, but from the parents in the stands! In an effort to make parents aware of how their actions affect the children, we have published "A Child's Plea." We encourage you to print this one and share it with your friends.

RSV - RSV occurs in epidemic almost every winter. Whereas infants with RSV develop bronchiolitis, children over 2 years and adults just develop a cold. RSV can become quite serious if left untreated. For symptoms and more information,

Rotavirus - Rotavirus commonly causes seasonal diarrhea in infants and young children, and sometimes is called "winter diarrhea." In children ages three months to two years, rotavirus is one of the most common causes of gastroenteritis, and it often causes outbreaks of diarrhea in day-care centers and children's hospitals. Rotavirus infections cause approximately 50,000 hospitalizations a year in the United States for diarrhea and dehydration. Learn more about rotavirus and how to prevent this illness.

Croup - Croup is a viral infection of the vocal cords. It usually accompanies a cold. If you've ever heard the distinctive cough, you understand the fear that first time parents experience. Croup is very common in the winter months. While croup sounds scary, most remedies are quite simple and can be done from home. Check out for more information.

Chores - The Right Job for the Right Age - Giving children chores help build their self-esteem. While we feel most parents understand the concept, we've some suggestions to help carry out the principal. It all starts with choosing an age appropriate job.
