Last time, we talked about violations in the intellectual and emotional development of the child and what prerequisites provoke these violations. Perhaps one of the most controversial cognitive disorders is childhood autism.
At an early age, it is quite difficult to determine whether the child is developing correctly: why at the age of one and a half years he still does not say, why he does not respond to his own name and does not play with his peers, why is he so violently capricious and does not want to eat on his own? Should these warning signs be signs of autism?
Can it be argued that autism is accompanied by a developmental delay? Of course. But can we say that autists are mentally disabled children who will remain so for life? Of course no. Delay in development is just one of the symptoms of autism, which is far from the most characteristic and dangerous for the child. Continue reading
More than 7.5 million children worldwide die each year before they reach the age of five. Most of them come from poor communities and live in the poorest countries. These children are more likely than others to suffer from malnutrition and from infectious diseases such as neonatal sepsis, measles, diarrhea, malaria and pneumonia.
Effective strategies for the prevention and treatment of sick children are available, but do not reach them. One reason for this is that medical services are often too far away or too expensive. Medical institutions in these conditions are often insufficiently equipped and do not have well-trained medical personnel. In addition, sick children can have several diseases at the same time, and this can cause difficulties for health workers in the diagnosis and treatment. Continue reading
According to statistics, children under 4 years old are often considered sick if they get sick more than 3-4 times a year. At the age of 4 to 7 years they need to be ill more than 3 times a year in order to fall into this category. If a child is sick less than 3 times, he can be considered an ordinary child.
Why do some children get sick more than others?
Poor nutrition and an unhealthy lifestyle are the first things you need to pay attention to if you want to strengthen the defenses of your child’s body. Everyone knows that a healthy diet, the absence of bad habits and hardening are the key to good health. It is important to remember that the most important thing in the diet of any person is vegetables. Two large plates of vegetables per day is the amount that will allow your child to stay healthy. What do children eat at school? Mostly sandwiches or buns. With such a “diet”, a child develops hypovitaminosis rather quickly, and the mineral content in the body decreases. And this is a direct road to diseases, especially to colds. Therefore, if you give your child a sandwich to school, be sure to give at least a carrot along with a sandwich.
What to do if the child does not like vegetables Continue reading
