Taking Care of Your Child offers the most recent information on obesity, behavioral issues, and other critical health concerns, along with updated immunization schedules and new material on complementary and alternative medicine.

Taking Care of Your Child is easy to use, even in a crisis. Parents can look up a symptom to find a complete explanation of probable causes, how serious they are, and how to relieve the problem at home. Easy-to-follow decision charts show exactly when to take a child to see a doctor. Covering more than 100 common complaints—like injuries, allergies, and childhood diseases—and with especially clear advice on handling emergencies, it is the indispensable guide for parents.
