Children's Health: Bones of obese children may be in trouble ♦ Child-pedestrian behaviors that lead to auto accidents '♦ Handle with care: Car seats and newborns

Handle with care: Car seats and newborns In 2013, car accidents resulted in approximately 8,500 infants requiring hospitalization or emergency department visits and 135 infant deaths. When used properly, car seats can reduce the risk of infant death and injury by 71 percent. Researchers found that most families with newborns made at least one serious error in the use and installation of their car safety seat.
Child-pedestrian behaviors that lead to auto accidents 'These results can serve as a tool to construct a hazard perception training intervention for youngsters,' Meir says. 'Moreover, the differences that emerged between the various children age groups reinforce that child pedestrians cannot be trained as a group, but rather the training needs to be adjusted to the level of experience the child has gained.'
Bones of obese children may be in trouble Obese children tend to have more muscle, but recent research on the muscle and bone relationship shows that excess body fat may compromise other functions in their bodies, such as bone growth.
Parent touch, play and support in childhood vital to well-being as an adult Did you receive affection, play freely and feel supported in childhood? Childhood experiences like these appear to have a lot to do with well-being and moral capacities in adulthood.
