How do you keep your kids active indoors?
Outdoor winter activities are enjoyable, but it is always good to be prepared with a list of indoor physical activities for when it is too cold or too rainy to play outside.

Visits to the doctor may seem unnecessary when your child is well, but well-child checks help keep them healthy. http://bit.ly/1Hsqqya

American Family Insurance Children's Hospital provides children with an atmosphere that is different than the average hospital. There are activities and themed rooms where children can play, watch movies, explore and just be kids.

God bless this hospital and its entire staff. If you are a parent, you know the fear of having a sick child hospitalized. It takes a lot to feel comfort in such situations. But the doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, kitchen staff, clerical, volunteers, everyone there goes out if their way to bring comfort to both patient and child. They allowed both my husband and me to sleep in the room with our child during the entire week long stay. They included us in the decisions with every step of treatment. We were treated with respect, compassion and most importantly good care. I feel they saved our Childs life and for that we will always be eternally grateful!

We have been here several times with both of our children to see specialists in two different departments: ENT and Urology. Our family has nothing but good things to say about the providers, the facility and the services provided at American Family Children's Hospital.
