Dr. Gretchen Wasserstrom, a Pediatrician with Martha Jefferson Hospital, explains in more detail the challenges facing our students today and how best parents can help them. One way is to recognize these problems before they have a chance to start. Parents should be focused on their child’s sleep, eating habits, exercise and social interactions. This is called the Bottom Line in the medical field.
Kids should be getting enough sleep, they should be eating right, exercising and being socially interactive with things that bring them happiness. If you get these down the rest will be a bit easier. But at things get more stressful for children, parents have to step in and help guide their choices. Parents should motivate, out of love, their children to be active, to study, to work and to eat right. The best way is to do so right along side them.
