[…] Phoenix pediatrician Kristin Struble said she thinks giving kids the opportunity to be outside and to be social (with distancing) is important for mental health. “Not having routine really impacts kids, and as we come into the holidays, trick-or-treating and participating in Halloween activities can help kids with their minds,” she said.
[…] “For older babies and children, you can use fever reducers,” Struble said, explaining that the purpose of fever reducers isn’t actually to treat the fever, but rather to help your child feel better. “If your child is acting fine with a fever, happy and playful, not whiny, eating and drinking okay, you don’t necessarily have to give them anything but love.”
“As a father of two young children, I believe that her simple suggestions and fun approach will help children become more “in tune” with what their bodies are trying to tell them. Training children to pay attention to these subtle signs will teach them to “listen” to their body and not only improve their health now, but for years to come.”R.

“As a practicing gastroenterologist, Dr. Struble’s book is a breath of fresh air. The clever cartoon illustrations are just what children need to have fun while learning something profoundly important.”Kristy Ingebo, MD – Pediatric Gastroenterologist, Phoenix Children’s Hospital
