What is a Child Life Specialist. By CHOA on March 5, 2013. in Hospital Staff, Mental Emotional Wellbeing, Our Caregivers, Teens Young Adults. By Kara Klein, Child Life Specialist, Child Protection Center. As a high school student, I knew I wanted to be a child life specialist. That decision took me from Canada to Auburn, Ala., and eventually to my workday home here at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. As one of more than 40 staff members on our child life team, my job is to help children cope with the stress and uncertainty of illness, hospitalization and potentially traumatic events. My child life role is a little different than that of my colleagues–mainly because my daily toolkit includes Bella, my four-legged best friend and therapy dog. In the spirit of Child Life Month, here’s what a work day for me looks like:. 8 a.m. – Day starts as I huddle with co-workers at the Children’s Center for Safe and Healthy Children, ...

We don’t need cows to survive but their milk sure does provide us with a convenient source of calcium. The amount of milk our children need varies with age. I outline needs in the video but know this, as your child ages from a preschooler to a school-age child to a teenager, their calcium needs increase. Of course, if your child doesn’t like milk or is allergic to milk products, you have plenty of ways to get them the calcium they need from other foods rich in calcium to fortified juices to calcium supplements and calcium-fortified bars. Getting The Calcium Our Children Need:. Lowfat milk is an easy and affordable source of calcium, but it certainly isn’t the only one. Other calcium rich foods include soybeans edamame, tofu, broccoli, spinach, and almonds. Calcium needs increase by age. If you’re not into counting milligrams of calcium, think of calcium needs by the ...

Cole sat down this week with the Post-Dispatch for questions related to the economic impact of children’s health issues. The importance of child health, therefore, is very high and should represent not only a major health care priority but also a major community and economic priority for this region. I would maintain that infant mortality, which is a big cost to society, could be reduced if we as a nation decided to assign a high priority of importance to pregnancy… Investment ...

Parents of children in Mommy and Me playgroups, classrooms or local parks department programs who have developmental delays, communication issues, chronic health conditions or other special needs have been concerned about age appropriate social skills, friendship and mutual support for decades. Encouraging friendships between classmates who represent the true diversity of our communities helps build relationship skills among children with developmental disabilities as well as their mainstream peers.

(1/6) Crimes and misdemeanours: the case of child abandonment.

In 2002, a child was abandoned in a Burger King restaurant in Amsterdam by a Chinese woman, who hoped that the baby would be picked up by someone able to give the child a better life. She was convicted for child abandonment and imprisoned. Whereas some forms of child abandonment are criminalised, others are socially accepted and not even on the ethics agenda. This paper is an invitation to reflect on the inconsistency in the ways in which we prosecute, punish or try to correct some forms of child abandonment and yet make allowances for others.  (+info)

(2/6) Misclassification bias and the estimated effect of parental involvement laws on adolescents' reproductive outcomes.

(3/6) Home and parenting resources available to siblings depending on their birth intention status.

 (+info)

(4/6) Perinatal characteristics of newborns relinquished at birth.

Demographic, perinatal, and newborn characteristics of single mothers relinquishing their newborns for adoption (N = 111) were compared with randomly selected and matched groups of mothers keeping their infants. Relinquishing mothers were younger, more apt to be Caucasian, Catholic, primiparous, and economically independent of government assistance, less likely to plan their pregnancies, and later starting prenatal care. In general, their pregnancies and infants were at no higher neonatal risk than those of other single mothers.  (+info)

(5/6) Differentials in the planning status of most recent live births to Mexican Americans and Anglos.

Data from personal interviews with 705 Mexican American and 363 Anglo women during the 1979 U.S. Mexico Border Survey were analyzed to answer the question, To what extent do Mexican Americans and Anglos differ in having the number of children they want, when they want them? Mexican Americans had a significantly higher percentage of unwanted births than did Anglos. Much of this difference is related to the fact that Mexican Americans, when compared with Anglos, have completed fewer years of schooling and have incomes closer to the poverty threshold than do Anglos. Both Mexican Americans and Anglos had relatively moderate levels of planned births; thus, neither group is in full control of the number and timing of their births. Our results suggest that there is a substantial need for family planning services for Mexican Americans and Anglos in the Southwest.  (+info)

(6/6) Consequences for children of their birth planning status.

Of 1,327 children younger than two in 1986 whose mothers were participants in the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, 61% were wanted, 34% were mistimed and 5% were unwanted. Planning status is associated with the level of developmental resources the child receives at home: At ages one and older, mistimed and unwanted children score significantly lower on a scale measuring opportunity for skill development and on a scale measuring nonauthoritarian parenting style than their wanted peers; by preschool age, they also have significantly less-positive relationships with their mothers. Measures of the direct effects of planning status on development also indicate that mistimed and unwanted children are at a disadvantage: Those younger than two have higher mean scores for fearfulness than wanted infants and lower scores for positive affect; unintended preschoolers score lower on a measure of receptive vocabulary.  (+info)

My husband and I have been discussing adopting a baby?


  • My husband and I have been married for almost four years (in Oct.) and for the last few month we have been discussing adopting a baby or a child - whichever. We already have three kids. A daughter who is three and twin boys who are two. Our biggest concern is that our children won't "take" to our adopted child - especially if he or she is older then them. And while we teach understanding, and acceptance to our children, we sometimes fear that if the child we adopt had a disability in any way that the children would automatically have questions or comments and make the adopted child feel unwanted or uncomfortable in their own home. I was wondering what suggestions you would have to someone who would like to adopt, and who feels myself and my husband are ready, but are not 100% if our children will be as comfortable with it as we are. Thank you!
  • I think it's good that you are asking questions. You have found a very informative source (Y!A Adoption), so stick around a while and read the questions and answers others post. You will probably learn a lot! In my opinion, your children are too young and you should focus on them. Why do you want to adopt when you are able to have biological children? Not all children in foster care (which is where I recommend you start looking should you choose to adopt) are disabled or were abused/neglected, but some are/were. If your concerns really are that your children won't accept the adopted child, then don't adopt. Either wait until your bio kids are older and can understand or don't do it at all. No one -- particularly a person who has lost his or her mother, family, home, etc. -- wants to be made to feel like a second-class citizen. Clearly you have some concerns and I applaud you for bringing them to light rather than just pretending they're not there. Now listen to your heart AND your head. Now isn't the time. Focus on the family you already have and if there is a time in the future when you want to adopt, do some research, call DCFS, and take the classes.


What are your personal beliefs on child adoption?


  • I think it is a wonderful thing... The only problem I have with it, is that I want that bond between mother and child. It breaks my heart thinking about telling my kid(s) they are adopted. I really would love to adopt a poor unwanted child, but the bond wouldn't be there. For me, that is. I don't want to sound bitter! Sorry! I am hoping for two twin girls in the future. And I know, I could adopt two twin girls, but like I said, I just really, really want to have that bond between us.
  • I am adopted, and I can say with out a doubt in my mind you are right there is a bond there that was missing, maybe it was because my brother and I were adopted when we were 5 and 6 respectively, but being a mother now myself I now know that something was missing from my childhood. Maybe had I been adopted when I was a baby there would be that bond, but that is neither here nor there. Please don't get me wrong, I love my mom and dad who adopted me and my brother very much, and am so grateful everyday for the wonderful life I was able to have. If you can't have kids PLEASE adopt! It is a beautiful thing and God has a special place in His heart for people who adopt!! But if you do adopt please adopt an American child!! There are so many children here who need loving homes!!


What is the oldest child you have seen with a pacifier?


  • I think the child I saw today was around 4 years old. The child took the pacifier out of her mouth to speak (very plainly) to her father. BQ - if your child used a pacifier - when did you get rid of it? Was it a tough process? My son never took one. I suppose I am lucky. It must be so hard to break if 4 yr olds run around with them.
  • I think the child was like 5/6 years old. It was at the supermarket... ugh it looked so wrong! My children never used a dummy/pacifier. They had a special teddy or 'blanky' and learned to self soothe. I know a lot of people will be angry with me for saying it but I think pacifiers are a bit lazy and create children who don't know how to be peaceful and happy when they have 'nothing' to do... no offence!


What will happen if you have child protective services involved and you sign over custody to a grandparent?


  • I have child protective services involved for about a year and they can't find anything but still won't leave me and my child alone. My parent wants me to sign over custody to them. What will happen when i do this? Will they close the case and leave my child alone or what? Also my parent lives in another state. Thanks for your time and knowlege. Please no negative comments.
  • They don't stay involved for a year and have nothing----otherwise the court would have returned your child to you. It is not up to child protective services as to if or when your child comes home. It is up to you and the court!!! If you don't sign over the child to your parent the agency is about ready to Proceed to the termination point of your rights and then the child goes where they decide. IF the child goes to your parent she is NOT Allowed to return the child to you without the permission of DHS And the Court!


What is the process for transferring a child from a foster home to a family member?


  • The child was not removed due to abuse or neglect, but because the (single) parent was in the hospital and unable to care for her. Now the parent's died, how is guardianship transferred? What kind of forms must be filled out? When the relative comes to pick up the child, does the case worker need to be present? The relative lives in a different country, so would the child require citizenship in the new country, or is she still a citizen of her home country? Any and all info appreciated. Thanks!
  • You need to apply for guardianship for the child. Find out who their caseworker is, and speak with them. Especially if they are traveling to a different country, it will be necessary to go through a long difficult process. The forms are going to be different, based on where the child lives and where they will be moved too. Is there any other relative that lives in the area? They will require citizenship in the new country. Does the relative have a relationship with the child? If not, they should start making a relationship for the child, and schedule visits to create or maintain the relationship. I know that it has been difficult getting a child out of foster care to live with grandparents in another state, so another country will likely also be difficult. The most important thing is to create and maintain a relationship with the child. Even if the relative lives for a time in the country of the child, that might be easiest. Then once the transference is complete, they can leave and apply for citizenship of the child.


When can a child start to sleep with regular bedding?


  • When can a child start to sleep with a pillow and top sheets/blankets tucked in at the bottom?
  • A child is ready for a toddler bed when they are climbing out of their crib all the time. Its not safe for them to do that. A toddler bed is so cute and practical for them. Thats when they need to have the little toddler sheets and a pillow. There is no set age because every child develops differently. When they are climbing out of that crib, they are ready.


What could a child later suffer from whose parent has been emotionally abusive?


  • Their parent would try to get attention from their young child by attempting to commit suicide, write good-bye letters and much more. Just picture a woman who would try to hurt her child as much as she could emotionally, until the child somehow breaks down and picture that over years to come. What problems could that child later suffer from?
  • if a parent is emotionally abusive the child can grow up with a lot emotional problems just like the mother. When a child is neglected and abused while growing up i wouldn't say they would be syco killers but I will say most of the time that child will will grow up to be very insecure about himself and things around him, he would hold a lot of resentment against his mother or just people in general. things in life would be much harder. Relationships would be difficult holding a job even harder. A child hood like this will need a lot of professional help. Some people make out they grow up to be successful and very content surpassing all there expectations and learn from there parents mistakes.


How does parents that abandoned a child affect the Childs mental health into adult hood?


  • How does this child deal with stressful situations and how do they behave in general? I know no two people are the same but im guessing that certain behaviours in these cases would be very similar.

Research shows that children who are exposed to a number of stressful events as children are more at risk of mental health difficulties than children who are not. Some of these stressful events include things like being abandoned by a parent, parental divorce, death of a parent, death of a close relative, low family income, low maternal education, low paternal education, incarcarated parent any many more. However, the catch is that one of these variables alone is unlikely to result in mental health difficulties. Take for example a child who has experienced the divorce of their parents. This event itself is unlikely to result in mental health difficulties into adulthood. However, coupling this event, with say, low family income, low maternal education and the death of a sibling than it is likely that this child will have some mental health difficulties in the future. The list of variables I listed above is not exhaustive. Obviously there are many more stressful events that can occur in a child's life. The point I'm trying to make is that it is not one variable in a person's life that puts them at risk of difficulties. It is a combination of three or four stressful events in childhood that can set the stage.
