According to WHO data, from 2000 to 2015 the vaccine against measles has saved 20 million lives. But parents all the same are afraid of inoculations and quite often refuse them. But with pleasure buy to children polyvitamins, allow them to spend the whole day with gadgets and force to eat up everything from a plate even if those don't want to eat any more. And it at all not because parents bad. On the contrary, they loving and careful. But parental care shouldn't lead to wrong moves. If you doubt whether correctly you arrive, look for support not at other doubting parents, and in scientific research and at competent doctors.
We have collected recommendations for parents who want that their children have grown up healthy and strong.
Vaccines are safe, and serious complications from them are extremely rare and incomparable to risk from diseases. For example, measles, a rubella, a mumps — serious diseases which can lead to pneumonia, encephalitis, a blindness and even death. And if the risk to die of the vaccine against measles — 1 on 1 million, then the risk to die from measles — 1 on 1 000. Statements that inoculations cause autism, are scientifically disproved, and preservative tiomersat which contains mercury, can't do harm to health because of scanty quantity as a part of vaccine.
It is necessary to impart children according to the national calendar of inoculations. Consider that he has included only those vaccines which the state is able to afford to do free of charge. If you want to secure completely the child, then it is in addition possible to do vaccination from:
The general blood test and urine before inoculations doesn't need to be done, and snivels and a red throat aren't a contraindication for inoculations.
Vaccination will help not only to, but also after contact with a virus or a bacterium. So, it is possible to take root from hepatitis A (better in the first 2 days after contact with the infected person, at most — 2 weeks), hepatitis B (in the first 24 hours, at most — 1 week), chicken poxes (within 72 hours), measles (within 72 hours), rage and tetanus.
If you doubt whether to do to the child of an inoculation, don't give in to emotions, and look for scientifically confirmed information on them. In more detail about inoculations it is possible to read here and here.
In 6–7 years at the child the first radical chewing teeth grow. On their surface there are deep grooves — fissures from which it is difficult to clean food. In new teeth calcium therefore enamel on them is subject to the increased risk of development of caries still doesn't suffice. Closing (sealing) of fissures reduces this risk by 90%.
Sealing is a covering of grooves in healthy teeth special polymer which smoothes roughnesses of tooth and emits the fluorine strengthening tooth enamel. Such covering on teeth of half a year and longer keeps.
After emergence of the first radical chewing teeth surely consult with the stomatologist: he will look at correctness of formation of a bite, will estimate dental health and gums of the child and will teach him to brush teeth correctly.
For healthy children to have a SARS or flu of 6-8 times a year — it is normal, diseases form immunity. Don't preserve the child against drafts and cold. If the kid had had typical symptoms of a viral infection (snivels, cough, a red throat), will enough meet the following conditions:
Against a SARS there are no drugs and folk remedies with the proved efficiency.
If the child normally feels and is able to play or study, he can be sent to a garden or school. Teach him to cough, sneeze and blow nose correctly. It is impossible to sneeze and cough in a palm, so the child shares viruses with people around, it is better to use a paper scarf or as a last resort an elbow. Hands during a disease need to be washed regularly and carefully.
All parents know that gadgets aren't really useful to children, but still nobody has avoided temptation to include to the child an animated cartoon on the tablet and half an hour to sit in silence. However researches show that use of mobile devices leads to problems with development of the speech, attention, memory and skills of communication.
When the child runs and jumps, his motive system is formed, heart and lungs grow, and vessels adapt to the changing physical activity. If he not movably sits in front of the screen, such training of an organism doesn't take place, and among side effects — the wrong formation of muscles of hands and fingers and a problem with cervical department of a backbone.
Yes, mobile devices — an integral part of life, but it is necessary to use them by rules. The American academy of pediatrics recommends not to give to children mobile devices up to 2 years, and to children is more senior not to allow to spend with them more than 2 hours. Also you watch that the child slept enough, I walked and actively not less than an hour a day moved.
Concerns many parents that the child eats a little and prefers chips and sparkling water to healthy and healthy food. But doctor Komarovsky considers that it is necessary to feed the child on appetite. If he is healthy, active and at the same time doesn't want to eat, so has spent not enough energy — go with him for a walk, let runs and jumps, and eventually he to ask to feed him.
Don't arrange the house infinite abundance which forces the child to touch whimsically that he wants and what isn't present. Exclude a possibility of having a snack "tasty" between meals, and in few weeks the child will eat both porridges, and meat, and dairy products. Because will get hungry!
According to researches, 67% of parents give to the children polyvitamins. However such medicines not only don't bring any benefit, but also can do harm. Vitamins share on water-soluble and fat-soluble (including A, E, K and D), and the second at excess consumption can collect in fatty tissue and cause poisoning.
The organism can receive all necessary substances from food. Control the child's food, every day he has to eat something from 5 groups of products: dairy, meat, vegetables, fruit and grain. And for completion it is necessary to be in an organism of vitamin D under sunshine at least 15 minutes a day.
Be careful with chewing vitamins: they are similar to candies and children can eat secretly from you more, than it is necessary. At overdose of vitamins serious consequences, for example a renal failure and problems with sight. If you consider that vitamin supplements are necessary for your child (for example, he prefers "junk food" or a vegetarian diet), consult with the doctor.
Troubles happen suddenly: the child just cheerfully played, but has already fallen and was wounded. In some situations every second is expensive. That know what to do in such cases, it is better to pass a training where you learn to render emergency aid. If there is no such opportunity, watch the training videos. Here, for example, the instruction from doctor Komarovsky about what to do if the child has choked.
