Summary:"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.
