Therapist Lisa Lieberman stresses that it is impor-
tant to make the information available to kids at
a developmentally appropriate level. Particularly
at first, you may want to talk to each child individ-
ually if they have different information needs. A
six-year-old may just need to be told that a part of
mommy’s brain isn’t working like it should, and
that makes her move funny, but she’s going to be
okay. An adolescent may need more specific infor-
mation about the disease.

Under GHI, the U.S. is striving to coordinate all of its health programming, but integration is not being pursued for
the sake of integration alone. We are working towards “smart integration,” which means selecting those opportunities
for integration that make sense technically, economically, and in the context in which they are to be implemented.
As someone who is currently planning to start trying to get pregnant within the next year, I spent a good deal of time browsing Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other sources for books that focus on pre-pregnancy planning. Unfortunately, there are not many good resources out there but I've outlined a few here that focus on planning for pregnancy, maximizing fertility, and dealing with infertility problems.
I had the privilege of being IACAPAP’s delegate to this meeting but almost
could not make it due to demonstrations and a nationwide strike in my country,
Nigeria, in the period leading right up to the dates scheduled for the meeting.
Fortunately, I arrived in the afternoon of day one of the crucial meeting just a few
minutes before the item on the “global burden of mental disorders” came up.
Bệnh thuỷ đậu, bà con ta quen gọi là bệnh phỏng rạ (ở miền Bắc), bệnh trái rạ (ở miền Nam). Thủ phạm gây bệnh là virut Varicella zoster. Nguồn lây duy nhất là người bệnh. Tỷ lệ mắc bệnh thường cao ở các đô thị, nơi đông dân, nhất là lúc giao mùa. Tuổi mắc nhiều nhất là 2-7 tuổi, phần lớn là trẻ chưa được tiêm phòng thủy đậu; ít khi gặp ở trẻ dưới 6 tháng. Người lớn cũng mắc. Sau một thời gian ủ bệnh chừng 14-15 ngày thì bệnh phát.
When I discuss children and development with my students they often
ask me how long have psychologists known about certain aspects and
why don’t they know such valuable information. I tell them that
I believe psychologists and educators need to get their research into
the general public’s hands more often. Our science has so much to
offer parents and teachers in practical terms.
A student magazine asserts that a key action towards sustainability is ‘don’t
have kids’ (Anon. 2008: 29). Another ‘green’ magazine for parents points out
that ‘in the US, even having just one child creates a carbon legacy almost six
times greater than each parent’s own lifetime carbon emissions’ (McAleer
2009). Sustainability and birthing human children are figured as mutually
exclusive. So how do we get an edited collection of essays in a book with both
the words ‘sustainability’ and ‘birth’ in the title?...
We all know that keeping a positive attitude can
affect our mental and physical health. So main-
taining a certain amount of calm and acceptance
about your circumstances can set the tone for your
family interactions. If the parent with PD is con-
stantly complaining or embarrassed, kids will pick
up on that and act the same way.
Of course, that’s not to say that you have to keep
everyone’s spirits up all the time. You need to
experience your own emotions and give them
validation. The key is to not get caught up in your
emotions and let them drag you down.
That idea gets a firm nod from therapist Lisa
Lieberman. “It’s important not to parentify kids,”
she says. They may learn more responsibility, but
they need permission to be kids, have friends and
be normal in that respect. “They are not there to be
in charge of everything. They need to have some of
the carefree spirit of being a kid.” There is a fine
line between developing an appropriate sense of
responsibility — not pretending that things aren’t
any different — and putting too much onto their
We will also use weight for height, weight for age, and leg length for age as health measures. Weight for
Height provides a measure of short run changes in nutritional status. Wasting, or low weight relative to
kids of the same age and sex of the reference population, might be due to starvation and severe disease
(in particular diarrhea). Lack of evidence of wasting in a population does not imply the absence of long
run nutritional status reflected in low height for age. The relation between weight and age is a
composite measure of height for age and weight for...
We recognize that the creative, effective solutions that positively transform societies and
their health ultimately grow from processes that take place within those societies. In both child
health and maternal health there are powerful stories of true success, which tell us that change
is possible, that the MDGs need not be pie-in-the-sky, and that leaders of change speak many
languages. At the same time, we are keenly aware that global forces both constrain and
facilitate the ability of local and national actors to think and act boldly.
In order to secure child’s healthy
development, having a healthy nutrition and
maintaining a desirable level of physical
exercise are not enough only by themselves.
Following rules of hygiene is also required, so
that the likelihood of kids getting sick is
limited. It has been proven that frequent
hand-washing is an effective way to protect
children from infectious diseases, since
spreading of diseases at school becomes
limited in this way.

Why can some athletes seemingly play through
injuries but succumb to incredible pain
immediately after the competition ends? The
explanation is thought to be related to the
intense motivational states that may interfere
with the perception of pain. The effects of
emotional states may also explain why individuals
with clinical depression report more pain than
their counterparts without depression, and why
anxiety increases pain perception.
