What parents think of fever. (1/5222)

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to assess knowledge, perception and management of fever by parents. METHODS: We conducted a questionnaire survey among 392 parents of children attending locally a paediatric clinic at The Royal Oldham Hospital. The main outcome measures were answers to questions covering a variety of aspects of the knowledge, perception and management of fever by parents. RESULTS: Almost half the parents used a liquid crystal forehead thermometer. Most could not use a glass thermometer. Thirty per cent did not know normal body temperature and would have treated children with a temperature below 38 degrees C. Sixty-four per cent treated fever with both paracetamol and tepid sponging. Most parents awakened children at night for antipyretics. Eighty-one per cent thought that untreated fever was most likely to cause fits or brain damage and 7% thought it could cause death. CONCLUSION: Parents perceive fever as being dangerous. They have a poor knowledge and measure it inaccurately. Needless consultations and hospital admissions could be avoided by a change in perception.  (+info)

B cell lymphoproliferative disorders following hematopoietic stem cell transplantation: risk factors, treatment and outcome. (2/5222)

Twenty-six cases of B cell lymphoproliferative disorder (BLPD) were identified among 2395 patients following hematopoietic stem cell transplants (HSCT) for which an overall incidence of BLPD was 1.2%. The true incidence was probably higher, since 9/26 of the diagnoses were made at autopsy. No BLPD was observed following autologous HSCT, so risk factor analyses were confined to the 1542 allogeneic HSCT. Factors assessed were HLA-mismatching (> or = 1 antigen), T cell depletion (TCD), presence of acute GvHD (grades II-IV), donor type (related vs unrelated), age of recipient and donor, and underlying disease. Factors found to be statistically significant included patients transplanted for immune deficiency and CML, donor age > or = 18 years, TCD, and HLA-mismatching, with recipients of combined TCD and HLA-mismatched grafts having the highest incidence. Factors found to be statistically significant in a multiple regression analysis were TCD, donor age and immune deficiency, although 7/8 of the patients with immunodeficiencies and BLPD received a TCD graft from a haploidentical parent. The overall mortality was 92% (24/26). One patient had a spontaneous remission, but subsequently died >1 year later of chronic GVHD. Thirteen patients received therapy for BLPD. Three patients received lymphocyte infusions without response. The only patients with responses and longterm survival received alpha interferon (alphaIFN). Of seven patients treated with alphaIFN there were four responses (one partial and three complete). These data demonstrate that alphaIFN can be an effective agent against BLPD following HSCT, if a timely diagnosis is made.  (+info)

Genetic linkage of IgA deficiency to the major histocompatibility complex: evidence for allele segregation distortion, parent-of-origin penetrance differences, and the role of anti-IgA antibodies in disease predisposition. (3/5222)

Immunoglobulin A (IgA) deficiency (IgAD) is characterized by a defect of terminal lymphocyte differentiation, leading to a lack of IgA in serum and mucosal secretions. Familial clustering, variable population prevalence in different ethnic groups, and a predominant inheritance pattern suggest a strong genetic predisposition to IgAD. The genetic susceptibility to IgAD is shared with a less prevalent, but more profound, defect called "common variable immunodeficiency" (CVID). Here we show an increased allele sharing at 6p21 in affected members of 83 multiplex IgAD/CVID pedigrees and demonstrate, using transmission/diseqilibrium tests, family-based associations indicating the presence of a predisposing locus, designated "IGAD1," in the proximal part of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC). The recurrence risk of IgAD was found to depend on the sex of parents transmitting the defect: affected mothers were more likely to produce offspring with IgAD than were affected fathers. Carrier mothers but not carrier fathers transmitted IGAD1 alleles more frequently to the affected offspring than would be expected under random segregation. The differential parent-of-origin penetrance is proposed to reflect a maternal effect mediated by the production of anti-IgA antibodies tentatively linked to IGAD1. This is supported by higher frequency of anti-IgA-positive females transmitting the disorder to children, in comparison with female IgAD nontransmitters, and by linkage data in the former group. Such pathogenic mechanisms may be shared by other MHC-linked complex traits associated with the production of specific autoantibodies, parental effects, and a particular MHC haplotype.  (+info)

Allowing for missing parents in genetic studies of case-parent triads. (4/5222)

In earlier work, my colleagues and I described a log-linear model for genetic data from triads composed of affected probands and their parents. This model allows detection of and discrimination between effects of an inherited haplotype versus effects of the maternal haplotype, which presumably would be mediated by prenatal factors. Like the transmission disequilibrium test (TDT), the likelihood-ratio test (LRT) based on this model is not sensitive to associations that are due to genetic admixture. When used as a method for testing for linkage disequilibrium, the LRT can be regarded as an alternative to the TDT. When one or both parents are missing, the resulting incomplete triad must be discarded to ensure validity of the TDT, thereby sacrificing information. By contrast, when the problem is set in a likelihood framework, the expectation-maximization algorithm allows the incomplete triads to contribute their information to the LRT without invalidation of the analysis. Simulations demonstrate that much of the lost statistical power can be recaptured by means of this missing-data technique. In fact, power is reasonably good even when no triad is complete-for example, when a study is designed to include only mothers of cases. Information from siblings also can be incorporated to further improve the statistical power when genetic data from parents or probands are missing.  (+info)

Psychosocial and economic problems of parents of children with epilepsy. (5/5222)

The parents of children with epilepsy (PCE) face multiple psychosocial and economic problems that are often neglected. We undertook this study to ascertain these problems among the patients attending a tertiary referral center for epilepsy in India. A structured questionnaire was administrated to parents of 50 children aged between 5-10 years and having epilepsy for more than 1 year's duration. Some 52% of the children had partial epilepsy whilst the remaining had generalized epilepsy. The median seizure frequency was one per 6 months. The majority of the patients (86%) were living in villages. The family income was less than 1000 Rs per month (1 USD = 42 INR) for 66% of the patients. A decline in social activities, after the onset of epilepsy in their children, was reported by 80% of the parents. Daily routines were significantly affected in over 75% of the parents. Parents had been experiencing frustration (52%) and hopelessness (76%), whilst 60% were in financial difficulties. The most important item of expenditure was cost of drugs or cost of travel to hospital for 54% and 36% parents respectively. Impaired emotional status and poor social adaptation were co-related with the severity of epilepsy (frequent seizures/generalized seizures/attention disorder) and low economic status of the parents. These observations need to be borne in mind while organizing rehabilitation programs for epilepsy.  (+info)

Health effects of passive smoking-10: Summary of effects of parental smoking on the respiratory health of children and implications for research. (6/5222)

BACKGROUND: Two recent reviews have assessed the effect of parental smoking on respiratory disease in children. METHODS: The results of the systematic quantitative review published as a series in Thorax are summarised and brought up to date by considering papers appearing on Embase or Medline up to June 1998. The findings are compared with those of the review published recently by the Californian Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Areas requiring further research are identified. RESULTS: Overall there is a very consistent picture with odds ratios for respiratory illnesses and symptoms and middle ear disease of between 1.2 and 1.6 for either parent smoking, the odds usually being higher in pre-school than in school aged children. For sudden infant death syndrome the odds ratio for maternal smoking is about 2. Significant effects from paternal smoking suggest a role for postnatal exposure to environmental tobacco smoke. Recent publications do not lead us to alter the conclusions of our earlier reviews. While essentially narrative rather than systematic and quantitative, the findings of the Californian EPA review are broadly similar. In addition they have reviewed studies of the effects of environmental tobacco smoke on children with cystic fibrosis and conclude from the limited evidence that there is a strong case for a relationship between parental smoking and admissions to hospital. They also review data from adults of the effects of acute exposure to environmental tobacco smoke under laboratory conditions which suggest acute effects on spirometric parameters rather than on bronchial hyperresponsiveness. It seems likely that such effects are also present in children. CONCLUSIONS: Substantial benefits to children would arise if parents stopped smoking after birth, even if the mother smoked during pregnancy. Policies need to be developed which reduce smoking amongst parents and protect infants and young children from exposure to environmental tobacco smoke. The weight of evidence is such that new prevalence studies are no longer justified. What are needed are studies which allow comparison of the effects of critical periods of exposure to cigarette smoke, particularly in utero, early infancy, and later childhood. Where longitudinal studies are carried out they should be analysed to look at the way in which changes in exposure are related to changes in outcome. Better still would be studies demonstrating reversibility of adverse effects, especially in asthmatic subjects or children with cystic fibrosis.  (+info)

Diabetic nephropathy is associated with an increased familial risk of stroke. (7/5222)

OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that genetic susceptibility to diabetic nephropathy is associated with an increased familial risk of vascular disease, we have examined the causes and rates of death of parents of individuals with type 1 diabetes complicated by diabetic nephropathy compared with the causes and rates of death of parents of control subjects with diabetes uncomplicated by nephropathy. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Individuals with at least a 14-year duration of type 1 diabetes complicated by diabetic nephropathy were identified and matched for age, sex, and duration of diabetes to control subjects. A total of 118 patients and 118 matched control subjects were identified and approached to obtain information on parental age and cause of death. For parents who had died, the cause of death was ascertained from the death certificate. RESULTS: Kaplan-Meier curves showed that parents of subjects with nephropathy (PN) had reduced survival compared with parents of diabetic subjects without nephropathy (PC) (log rank test P < 0.05). There was an excess of all vascular deaths and, in particular, strokes in the parents of subjects with nephropathy (PN: 20 of 103 deaths, 19% vs. PC: 3 of 66 deaths, 4%; Fisher's exact test P < 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: Parents of diabetic patients with nephropathy have reduced survival. This seems to be largely explained by an increase in vascular deaths and, in particular, a four-fold increase in the number of strokes. This supports the hypothesis that a common hereditary risk factor predisposes to both vascular death and diabetic renal disease.  (+info)

Urinary cotinine and exposure to parental smoking in a population of children with asthma. (8/5222)

BACKGROUND: Studies of the effects of tobacco smoke often rely on reported exposure to cigarette smoke, a measure that is subject to bias. We describe here the relationship between parental smoking exposure as assessed by urinary cotinine excretion and lung function in children with asthma. METHODS: We studied 90 children 4-14 years of age, who reported a confirmed diagnosis or symptoms of asthma. In each child, we assessed baseline pulmonary function (spirometry) and bronchial responsiveness to carbachol stimulation. Urinary cotinine was measured by HPLC with ultraviolet detection. RESULTS: Urinary cotinine concentrations in the children were significantly correlated (P <0.001) with the number of cigarettes the parents, especially the mothers, smoked. Bronchial responsiveness to carbachol (but not spirometry test results) was correlated (P <0.03) with urinary cotinine in the children. CONCLUSION: Passive smoke exposure increases the bronchial responsiveness to carbachol in asthmatic children.  (+info)

AU - Wissow, Lawrence S.. PY - 2011/8. Y1 - 2011/8. N2 - Objective: To identify family, provider, and healthcare setting characteristics associated with African-American parents perceptions of partnership with their childs primary care provider. Study design: Data were collected via a telephone survey of 425 African-American parents of 0- to 5-year-old children who had presented for a health visit 1 to 2 weeks earlier at participating pediatric primary care practices in Washington, DC. Parents perceptions of the level of partnership building by their childs provider were assessed using the Street Provider Communication Style instrument. Results: Multivariate logistic regression models indicated that, after adjusting for other family and provider/setting characteristics, parents seen in community health centers ...
Objectives To evaluate parental perceptions of and concern about childs body weight and general health in children in a European cohort. Design Cross-sectional multi-centre study in eight European countries. Participants 16220 children, ages 29 years. Methods Parents completed a questionnaire regarding childrens health and weight and concern about overweight and underweight. Objective childrens weight categories from the International Obesity Task Force were used. Logistic regression models were utilized to identify predictors of accurate weight perception. Results Parental weight perception corresponded overall to childrens mean body mass index (BMI) z-scores, with important exceptions. About one-third of the total indicated concern about underweight, paradoxically most often parents of children in the overweight or obesity categories. In 63%, parents of children in the overweight category marked proper weight. The strongest predictor for accurate parental weight perception for children ...
TY - CPAPER AB - A Survey to Assess Parents Perception of and Familiarity with EngineeringThe efforts of promoting engineering in K-12 education usually focus on students and teachers.However, parents can be important agents in infusing engineering in childrens learning, asresearch has provided evidence for parents impact on childrens attitudes towards learning asubject. Therefore, it is important to understand possible parental influence on childrensengineering learning. The purpose of the study is to provide validity evidence for a Lickert-scalesurvey exploring parents familiarity with engineering and their perceptions of engineering.For our theoretical foundation, we adopted the Knowledge, Attitudes, and Behavior (KAB)Framework, which recognizes the interactive relationships between the three dimensions. In thisstudy, we constructed a 13-item survey to probe parents self-rated knowledge of engineering andattitudes towards engineering. Of the 13 items, 10 were adopted from a survey ...
This study showed that, apart from individual factors such as parental education level, certain modifiable characteristics in the neighborhood environment (as measured by neighborhood observations) were associated with outdoor play among boys and girls of different age groups in The Netherlands. The finding that parental education level was negatively associated with outdoor play, might be explained by the fact that higher educated parents have more financial resources for organized sports activities, and that this substitutes time spent on outdoor play [30]. Moreover, as lower educated parents might live in smaller houses, this makes it more likely for children to play outdoors. Another explanation might be found in the finding that parents living in more socioeconomic deprived areas are more likely to allow their children to take part in outdoor activities independently [31]. Veitch et al. recently have shown that the correlation between parental education level and the time spent on outdoor ...
Screen capture of video showing work between a parent and child. In the multi-site study, 180 children (age 3 to 7 years) with ASD and serious behavioral problems were randomly assigned to either 24 weeks of parent training or 24 weeks of parent education. Parent Training consisted of 11 core treatment sessions, two optional sessions, two telephone boosters, and two home visits. Parent Education included 12 core sessions and one home visit. Parents in both treatments attended over 90 percent of treatment sessions, suggesting that parents were highly engaged in the study treatments. After 24 weeks of treatment, children in the parent-training group showed a 48 percent improvement on parent ratings of disruptive behavior compared to a 32 percent decline for parent education. Overall progress was rated by a clinician who was blind to treatment assignment. At week 24, 70 percent of children in the parent-training group showed a positive response, compared to 40 percent for parent education. This is ...
The knowledge, attitudes and practices of the respondents were found to be generally good and positive about pneumonia disease burden and immunisations/EPI vaccines. However, only 19% of the parents/guardians were aware of the availability of the PCV. Most parents/guardians were of the opinion that increased sensitisation/mass vaccination campaigns would remain essential for the PCV to reach every child. Logistic modelling identified associations between; - educational level and parental knowledge on the consequences/seriousness of pneumonia infections, income and parental knowledge on pneumonia causes/risk factors, occupational level and parental knowledge on pneumonia prevention beside that of region of origin and parental knowledge on the availability of the PCV. Also, a friendly attitude from health personnel was thought to motivate parents/guardians to respect vaccination schedules ...

Parents play a critical role in their childrens introduction to alcohol. A range of parenting factors have been associated with the progression to risky drinking among adolescents, and have recently formed the basis of the Australian Parenting Guidelines for Adolescent Alcohol Use designed to help parents delay or reduce their adolescents alcohol use. This study aimed to explore the experiences and attitudes of parents of adolescents to gain insight into: (1) the extent to which the behaviours of parents follow the recommendations made in the guidelines; and (2) approaches to reduce hazardous drinking among adolescents. Thirty-two telephone and face-to-face interviews were conducted with parents, and the content of discussions was examined using thematic analysis. Parents used approaches they thought would minimise harm and promote healthy development in their children. The guidelines address key areas of concern for parents but their adherence to these approaches is low in certain areas. Many
This study has shown that the majority of parents, whose childrens backpacks weigh 10% or more of their body weights, do not know the backpack weights or contents. Paradoxically, many of the published reports on backpack safety have focused on older children, adult use in the work place or for recreational hiking, and military personnel.3-5 Few reports have focused on young children.6 It is easy to underestimate the large supply demands required of children in our modern educational system. Carrying a days worth of books, supplies, gym clothes, and the myriad of items treasured by children for many hours is a difficult task.. Definitely, an experimental trial is what is needed to assess the influence of parental knowledge on backpack loads or related symptoms. Our findings are also limited by the small number of public elementary schools used and the fact that data on items carried in the backpacks and parental knowledge were based on self reports. Nonetheless, we believe that there is a need ...

Parents of pediatric cancer patients use multiple sources, with varying levels of veracity, to generate an understanding of their childs prognosis. While some degree of optimism is beneficial, unreasonably optimistic beliefs can be detrimental to the patient and family experience. The accuracy of a parents understanding compared with that of their childs physician depends on numerous factors, yet few studies have analyzed the impact of these individual sources on parents perception of their childs prognosis. Researchers in this study used questionnaires to evaluate which sources of information parents valued the most and how reliance on different sources affected their prognostic accuracy. Sources analyzed included explicit medical conversations with providers, implicit senses of child wellbeing, social interactions with loved ones, spiritual encounters, and various forms of literature. Results showed that only about 25% of parents reported a prognostic estimate which matched that reported ...

Parents can be more sensitive to this issue by paying close attention to how their children are feeling, says Andersonn. Asking, conversing with, observing, and listening to their children can accomplish this.. Andersonn feels that the main problem is that some parents are unaware of many of their own feelings and psychological issues. In fact, this inspired him to write about athletic children. I want to help parents see how easy it is to become numb in a society that does not value feelings, particularly in sports, and help them see how vital it is to become more sensitive.. What if your son loses his next Little League game? What can you do to help him deal with his feelings of disappointment? Young athletes will lose sometimes in sports. Parents can reassure them that losing at anything does not make him a loser as a person. It [only] means that he has lost in that [particular] situation, Andersonn explains.. Parents need to be patient and emotionally present when their children lose, ...

Our educational tutorial was very successful in improving pediatric and family practice residents general knowledge and knowledge of adverse events regarding childhood immunizations. Although some residents were well informed about the historical and ideological origins of parents resistance to vaccination, most were not. The majority was unfamiliar with resources for accurate information, the nature of the reporting system for adverse events, physician involvement in the antivaccine movement, and the status of philosophical objections to immunization. A large portion of residents likewise had inaccurate beliefs about many of the clinical features that are (or are not) associated with routine childhood immunizations.. On all but 3 of the clinical measures, posttest knowledge improved significantly. For the 2 of 3 that did not (fever and seizures), it was subsequently noted that the wording and layout of the items in question lent themselves to misinterpretation. In the case of Fever ,102°F ...
Abstract: Parental responses to childrens pain are related to how children and adolescents cope with and manage chronic pain.

Implications for future research and chronic pain management interventions are ...
A parent is a caregiver of the offspring in their own species. In humans, a parent is the caretaker of a child (where child refers to offspring, not necessarily age). A biological parent is a person whose gamete resulted in a child, a male through the sperm, and a female through the ovum. Parents are first-degree relatives and have 50% genetic meet. A female can also become a parent through surrogacy. Some parents may be adoptive parents, who nurture and raise an offspring, but are not actually biologically related to the child. Orphans without adoptive parents can be raised by their grandparents or other family members. A parent can also be elaborated as an ancestor removed one generation. With recent medical advances, it is possible to have more than two biological parents. Examples of third biological parents include instances involving surrogacy or a third person who has provided DNA samples during an assisted reproductive procedure that has altered the recipients genetic material. The ...

In this study, we have assessed parents understanding of their childs congenital heart disease in different domains, which differs from most of the previous studies that focused on particular aspects.3-6 Despite recent advances in medical and surgical management of paediatric cardiac patients, the findings of the present study suggest that parents have important knowledge gaps. While the majority of parents could name the cardiac lesion, either in part or completely, and were knowledgeable concerning previous surgical or transcatheter interventions, their knowledge of the aetiology and symptoms of congenital heart disease were limited. Furthermore, only slightly more than half were aware of the impact of their childs heart disease on exercise capacity. Disappointingly, their knowledge about infective endocarditis and side effects of cardiac medications appear to be quite deficient.. In the present study 59% of parents named their childs heart defect correctly, which is comparable with the ...

The children were presented with a number of questions about child participation in their communities.. Question: Why is it important to hear the voices of children?. One child underlined one key impact of giving a platform to childrens voices. [If] elders hear our voices…this will increase our trust for ourselves. However, a child from Pakistan pointed out the importance of adopting a gender sensitive lens when promoting child participation, noting that in her community boys voices were often given greater weight than girls.. Question: How does your community make spaces for child participation?. The children shared some examples of how their community supported or encouraged child participation, but also their concerns on where they felt support for child participation was lacking..

Many different relationships may be developed between the birth mother and the adoptive family. In confidential (closed) adoptions, the birth mother chooses to have little or no information whatsoever about the adoptive parents and the adoptive parents receive little or no information about the birth mother. In closed adoptions, the adoption professional usually selects the adoptive parents and there is very little, if any, contact between the birth mother and the adoptive parents. In an open adoption, which is much more common today, the birth mother and adoptive family exchange comprehensive personal information. The birth mother receives a background profile and photographs of the adoptive family as well as non-identifying information about the familys life. Likewise, the adoptive family receives the birth mothers complete biographical and medical background information along with photographs depicting her family members and, if available, pictures of the birth mother as a child. ...

Washington, DC - The nations emergency physicians are issuing a strong warning to parents about the dangers of prescription drug abuse, which are now the second most abused drugs, after marijuana. Nearly three-quarters of a million people (741,425) needed emergency care in 2006 because of prescription drug abuse.. Often when you hear that someone has overdosed on drugs you think of illegal substances, such as cocaine or heroin, said Dr. Angela Gardner, president of the American College of Emergency Physicians. But parents need to know that many young people are taking prescription drugs from the medicine cabinets. Many of the kids wrongly believe the drugs are not addictive, and they dont realize they can be lethal.. The types of prescription drugs most commonly abused are painkillers, such as OxyContin, and Vicodin. Also, central nervous system depressants (or barbiturates), such as Valium and Xanax, are common. Twelve- to 14-year old girls are more likely than boys to have abused ...

The purpose of this study was to understand the experiences and perceptions of parents having a child diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Interviews with 12 parents were audio-recorded and subsequently analyzed to reveal the following themes: (a) Diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder was not confirmed until years and/or several doctor visits after parents identified concerns. (b) Because they were given little guidance by medical professionals, parents took the initiative to educate themselves about their child s disorder and optional therapies. (c) Lack of daycare options and the cost of interventions were stressors for these families. (d) Parents were torn between their child with an ASD and other family members and friends. (e) Anxiety about the future was prevalent. (f) Parents felt judged by others when with their child in public. (g) Many parents felt that vaccinations may have played a role in their child s ASD ...
(BPT) - Parents of young athletes know that along with the many benefits of participating in sports, there comes a certain amount of injury risk. And while most would agree that the benefits of being active and involved in athletics outweigh those risks, it’s important to make sure your child gets proper treatment if an injury occurs. As more evidence surfaces about long-term health challenges related to concussions, it’s especially crucial that parents bring themselves up to speed on the proper procedures for caring for an athlete who experiences a concussion.The most important thing parents need to know about concussions is that if an athlete exhibits any signs or experiences any symptoms of a concussion, he or she should be immediately removed from play. While this recommendation is nothing new, the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) is again emphasizing its importance with the release of its updated 2013 sports concussion evidence-based guidelines.“Among the most important
This is the first in-depth study of initial experiences of parents of their very preterm baby and NICU. Results show that parents have difficulty remembering aspects of the birth and experience a rollercoaster of emotions during this time. Individual differences in emotions were most apparent between the birth and seeing their baby in NICU when parents were either nervous and fearful, or eager and excited. NICU was initially overpowering for parents, especially those who had not visited it previously or who saw their baby for the very first time there. However, being able to touch and hold the baby in NICU was important in triggering or strengthening the bond between parents and their baby. Parents who are anxious and avoidant of initial contact with the NICU or their baby are at risk of poor attachment and mental health26 therefore parents need help to overcome this. Interestingly, a few first-time parents appeared to be protected by their inexperience of a normal birth and reported ...
Introduction: the infantile autism is a developmental disorder that affects social interaction, language, cognition and quality of life. Objective: describing the parents perception about daily care for autistic children. Methods: it was a descriptive and qualitative study performed with parents of autistic children attending a reference health center in a Brazilian city. A semi-structured interview was used to collect data. The participants gave information about their socioeconomic status, daily care activities, hope and social interaction. Results: based on the speeches of the participants, the following categories were described: negative feelings about the disorder; the (in)dependent autistic children and future perspectives for them; family acceptance of autism, which required appropriated changes in the family environment.

Aims: To (i) compare the views of general practitioners (GPs) and parents about the causes, consequences and management of childhood overweight/obesity; and (ii) explore the extent to which they can identify overweight/obesity in children. Methods: A questionnaire was mailed to all GPs in one Primary Care Trust and all parents in one primary school in southern England, 2008. Information was gathered on socio-demographic background, views about causes, consequences and management of childhood overweight/obesity; judgements about the weight status of 14 images of children (seven boys, seven girls) in the Childrens Body Image Scale (CBIS). Comparisons were made between GP and parents responses using unpaired bivariate tests. Results: The response rate was 33%. Differences exist between the views of GPs and parents about childhood weight management: 86.4% of parents felt GPs should be involved, compared to 73.3% of GPs (P , 0.001). Parents thought GPs should be more proactive than the GPs stated ...
3 (1) For the purposes of sections 6 (1) (b) and (2) (a) and 48 (2) (c) of the Act, a homestudy of the prospective adoptive parents respecting their ability to provide for the physical and emotional needs of a child must be prepared by a social worker and must consider and provide for all of the following:.

This current systematic literature review aims to examine what is known about foster parents needs, satisfaction and perceptions of foster parent training. A systematized search in relevant databases resulted in 13 publications, with mostly quantitative studies, originating from four countries. Research on foster parent training is scarce, and the satisfaction, needs and perceptions of foster parents were included as secondary outcomes in most of the reviewed studies. A synthesis of the results from the reviewed quantitative studies indicate high levels of user satisfaction, whereas qualitative findings indicate needs for more advanced training on parenting children with special needs, and more real life and flexible practice/training. In conclusion, more research is needed to increase the knowledge on prospective and current foster parents perceptions of, and satisfaction with foster parent training, and their needs for training ...

Of children living in households containing at least one daily smoker, more than half were reported to be exposed to environmental tobacco smoke in their own home. However, most parents reported having made efforts to change their smoking behaviour for the sake of their children.. Approximately eight out of 10 parents living in households where at least one of them smoked claimed to have introduced some rules in their home to limit smoking indoors (table 2), and four out of 10 households containing at least one daily smoker reported having eliminated indoor smoking in the home in the vicinity of their children (table 3). For children living in households where both parents smoked, or living with a single smoking parent, the situation was much worse. Even so, 30% of these parents stated that they did not expose their children to ETS indoors at home.. The data show that single parents and parents with lower socioeconomic status expose their children more to ETS (table 3) but are just as likely to ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Parent perceptions of dental care providers role in human papillomavirus prevention and vaccine advocacy. AU - Stull, Cynthia. AU - Freese, Rebecca. AU - Sarvas, Elise. PY - 2020/8. Y1 - 2020/8. N2 - Background: Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection and is responsible for most anogenital and oropharyngeal cancers. Dental care providers can be advocates for vaccine uptake, yet little is known about patients perceptions of the role of dental care providers in HPV education and prevention. Methods: Parents of adolescents aged 9 through 17 years were recruited from the Minnesota State Fair to survey their awareness and knowledge of the HPV vaccine. Parents were also surveyed about their attitudes toward and comfort in receiving HPV vaccination recommendations and counseling from oral health care providers. Results: The authors interviewed 208 parents, most of whom felt that dentists were qualified to counsel about HPV (66.4%) and its ...
More and more parents are just saying no to the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine, according to a new study by the Mayo Clinic. In fact, the researchers who conducted the study, which involved analyzing vaccination data for teens ages 13 to 17 in the 2008-10 National Immunization Survey of Teens, found that more than two in five parents surveyed believe the HPV vaccine is unnecessary and an increasing growing number of them express worry about potential side effects.. The findings, just published in the new issue of the journal Pediatrics, reveal that five years ago, 40 percent of parents surveyed said they wouldnt vaccinate their girls against HPV- despite the fact doctors are increasingly pushing these vaccinations. By 2009, that figure had increased a little - up to 41 percent. However, by 2010, a full 44 percent of parents said they would not have their daughters vaccinated against HPV.. Parents concern about the safety of the HPV vaccine rose from five percent in 2008 to 16 percent in ...

Children with a clinical diagnosis of calcaneal apophysitis reportedly experience impaired physical ability. Patient reported outcome assessments measure the level of conditional specific interference in everyday life. The aim of this study was to assess and compare the child and parent perceptions of health related quality of life (QOL) associated with calcaneal apophysitis. This is a longitudinal repeated measure study nested within a randomized comparative effectiveness trial. Children who had symptoms of calcaneal apophysitis were recruited from local advertising and from the caseload of podiatrists within the health setting (Australia). The Oxford Ankle Foot Questionnaire for Children (OxAFQ-C) was completed at baseline, 1, 2, 6 and 12 month time points by both child and parent. A total of 133 children were recruited and 124 participated in the study with 101 completing the OxAFQ-C at all five time points. The inter-rater reliability between the child and parent for the physical domain ranged
That will make the court process easier. The other parent can sign their consent for you to have sole physical and legal custody.

Pediatricians and experts on child trauma are expressing deep concerns regarding the effects of separating migrant children from their parents at the United States borders and what this could bring about in the child as they grow.
In this national sample of pediatricians, we found that most were aware of situations in which parents have not sufficiently understood presented health information and were cognizant of how this can affect patient safety. Previous studies have reported that patients with limited health literacy skills have poorer health status than the remainder of the population.6-10 Most pediatricians surveyed in this study agreed or strongly agreed that patient/parent understanding of health information can improve the quality of pediatric health care delivery and that there are available strategies to help ensure patient/parent understanding of health information. However, pediatricians were more likely to report use of basic communication techniques than more enhanced methods recommended by health literacy experts, a finding consistent with previous studies.3,4 Use of these more enhanced techniques was more likely to be reported by pediatricians who are practicing in settings with more parents with limited ...
Adoption is complex. All of it. And sometimes we, as adoptees, dont fully understand how complex it is until we lose our adoptive parents. Because many times, our adoptive parents, good or bad, are the only people who moored us to existence.
TSC is a rare disease, but caregivers also describe it as a neglected disease not only because a target and a specific therapy for TSC are still missing in 2012, at the time of this study in Italy, but also because there is a lack of understanding of the feelings, difficulties and requests of patients and their families. To date, psychosocial studies that improve the past experiences of patients and caregivers coping with TSC are lacking. In particular, the voices of caregivers have been neglected, despite the fact that literature underscores the importance of family support for children with disabilities:28 families that are able to well adapt to the disease increase the chances of patients recovery and well-being.11 Furthermore, since TSC (in particular when SEGA manifestation are concerned) is strongly invalidating patients, often causing developmental retardation and cognitive impairments, to study caregivers/parents experiences and caring unmet needs appear the only way to cast light on ...

NASHVILLE - The Tennessee Department of Health invites parents and caregivers to take part in Lets Talk Month this October. This annual campaign empowers parents to take advantage of teachable moments every day to talk with their families about healthy relationships. ​. Its important for parents to talk with their children about relationships, sexuality and preventing teen pregnancy. Teens consistently say parents - not peers, not partners and not pop culture most influence their decisions about sex, said TDH Deputy Commissioner for Population Health Michael Warren, MD, MPH, FAAP. Lets Talk Month helps parents feel more confident when talking about these topics, and encourages youth to feel comfortable bringing up these subjects with their parents. Parents are the best sexuality educators for their children. Lets Talk Month recognizes parents want to be good educators, but not everyone is always comfortable or sure how to best approach these important conversations when the ...
Lack of sleep. How It May Make You Feel. Most parents have a difficult time saying goodbye to their child when staring at his tearful eyes and hearing his excessive pleas. Parents may experience guilt over having to leave their child in this emotional state. Many parents also feel stressed and overwhelmed by the amount of effort they have to put in to bringing their child to school each day. Parents should take comfort in knowing that this is a normal part of a childs development and it will pass in time. It can also be helpful to focus on the fact that your childs unwillingness to leave you is an indication of a healthy bond between parent and child.. What You Can Do To Help. Sometimes, no matter what a parent does to prevent separation anxiety, the child will still experience it. In most cases, the child will just have to go through this stage of development. There are, however, some strategies that parents can use to ease their childs anxiety and make the transition to school easier. These ...
The main aim of this thesis was to longitudinally investigate the potential occurrence of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) among parents of children on cancer treatment (Study I). Additional aims were to describe parents perceptions of emotional support and satisfaction with the childs care (II), perceptions of the childs symptom burden (III), and parents stories about having a child on cancer treatment (IV). The design was prospective, longitudinal, and data was collected at: one week, two months, and four months after the childs diagnosis and one week/six months after the end of successful treatment/transplantation. Parents (N=259) were consecutively included during the years 2002-2004 and answered questionnaires and open-ended questions over the telephone. Parenting a child with cancer is a very demanding, potentially traumatic, event. Approximately a fourth of the parents report symptoms corresponding to PTSD. The symptom level is related to being a mother, not working before the ...
