A sky-high fever accompanied by a rash caused by a virus that generally affects children – these are the major symptoms of roseola. Fortunately, though, roseola is common and typically isn't life-threatening. Because it’s common among kids 6 months to 2 years old, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with it – especially if you have a child younger than age 6.
Everyone likes to win – who doesn’t? But for everyone that wins, there’s someone that loses, so teaching your child not to be a sore loser early on is important. Throwing tantrums if they lose, quitting when they’re behind, or losing their temper if you beat them are all pretty significant signs that you’ve got a sore loser on your hands. These issues that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. Not only that, but sore losing can also lead to things like cheating or being a boastful winner, and who would want to play with someone like that?
Potty-training theories are a dime a dozen, and even strangers don’t hesitate to offer free advice. But as each child is different, the real key to success is to pay close attention to your child and have lots of patience.
There might be nothing more frustrating than knowing your child is hurting, upset or having a difficult time and not being able to pinpoint exactly what’s causing it. This is often the case at first with parents whose children are lactose intolerant, especially if the child is a newborn and can’t voice what’s wrong. The good news is that knowing what symptoms to look for may make it easier to recognize the problem early on.
