"Designed to meet parents' informational and record-keeping needs, The Practical Pediatrician provides a special fold-out guide for the ongoing process of child-proofing the home; the flip side of this chart has a checklist for recording your child's immunizations. A special section in the back of the book offers charts listing what to expect at well-child visits, with pertinent questions to ask your doctor, as well as growth and head-circumference measurement charts to track your child's progress."--BOOK JACKET. "Written with modern parents in mind, Drs. Markel and Oski discuss newly important topics such as health issues related to TV, video games, and the Internet; obesity; choosing and evaluating day care; passive smoking; disposable vs. cloth diapers; negotiating with your child; AIDS; saying "No" to drugs; handling disagreements between parents; and talking with your child about divorce and death. Throughout, the authors deal with issues of particular interest to both single parents and two-career households."--BOOK JACKET. "The wealth of information conveyed with reassuring advice, humor, and the invaluable expertise of Howard Markel and Frank Oski, makes The Practical Pediatrician a perfect guide through the questions and rewards of parenthood."--BOOK JACKET.
