Summary "Covering more than 175 health care problems and symptoms, it offers the most recent information on critical childcare issues--from what to do in the event of a minor injury to everyday issues such as common allergies and ailments. Taking Care of Your Child is easy to use, even in a crisis: you can simply look up a symptom to find a complete explanation of probable causes, how to treat the problem at home, and when to see a doctor. With the very latest on ADHD, autism, breast-feeding, childhood depression and obesity, discipline, immunizations, and more, this new edition also features new sections on youth sports and head trauma, genetic screening, and minimizing risks of medical procedures"-- provided by publisher.
