Does your child have difficulty falling asleep? Wake in the middle of the night? Suffer sleep terrors, sleepwalking, or nighttime fears? Have difficulty waking for school or staying awake in class? Snore, wet the bed, or head bang?

We recommend Dr. Richard Ferber's book, Solve Your Child's Sleep Problems.

A food allergy occurs when the body's immune system sees a certain food as harmful and reacts by causing one or more symptoms. This is known as an allergic reaction. Foods that cause allergic reactions are called allergens. Even a tiny amount of an allergen can cause a reaction. Allergic reactions usually occur after your child eats a food that she or he is allergic to.

To treat childhood cancer in the best way possible, we need to create specialized treatments just for kids.

As any expert will tell you, storms trigger fear and anxiety—and for good reason. Many storms are dangerous and cause millions of dollars of damage as streets flood, trees fall, power lines break, schools close, and businesses suffer.
