Is Child Obesity Child Abuse?

A South Carolina woman was charged with criminal neglect when her 14 year old son reached a shocking 555 pounds. I am sure that many of you can understand the charge because the example is so egregious. But how do we know this is really the mother’s fault? And if we do decide to charge parents of obese kids with child abuse, where do we draw the line?



As a Pediatrician and Child Obesity Expert, I see a wide range of overweight children. Some patients are simply ten pounds overweight… Continue

Is Your Child Vitamin D Deficient?

We were starting to think that Vitamin D deficiency was a thing of the past. I mean, when was the last time you met someone with rickets? But a recent study in Pediatrics showed that over six million children in the United States do not get enough Vitamin D. That is one out of every five kids! It seems that Vitamin D deficiency is more common than we thought.



Vitamin D is an important vitamin! New studies are proving that vitamin D can help prevent many diseases such as cancer,… Continue

Whole Milk Is Not Appropriate For Kids: So Why Are Schools Still Serving It?

Recently, America’s school lunch menus have been under fire and parents are becoming increasingly concerned about the state of their children’s health and well-being. Federal law, under the School Lunch Act, provides nutritional guidelines and criteria to which schools must adhere. These guidelines include the amount and type of foods the cafeteria must offer, in addition to placing limits on nutrients like saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium. Specifically, school lunches must provide 1/3 of… Continue

What's Up With Your Eggs?

What are your plans for Easter weekend?

Last year we had all 5 of the kids and I took them to a local egg hunt. My hubby worked 7 days a week then (at his last job) and couldn’t go with me, but I was able to talk my mom into going to help out with the kids. It wouldn’t have been too difficult by myself, but since my son was just a year and a half he needed most of the attention. They split the area up into sections for different age groups and have games and little booths for…

Why Child Development and Parenting Research is Important

In response to some posts in the past, some readers have made comments along the lines of, "Duh, why do we need research to figure that out." I personally do not take offense at such comments because I'm not the one doing the research, I'm just reporting it. Besides that, I have at times felt… Continue

Letting Go

“Letting go doesn’t mean giving up, but rather accepting that there are things that cannot be.” ~Anon





There are many things I envision doing in the two hours I normally have for myself, after my children go to bed. Fixing items is definitely not one of them.





After dinner, my daughter decided she was going to measure every piece of furniture in the living room, every knick-knack on tables and cabinets, and even her dad, who was lying oblivious on the couch… Continue

Backseat Driver: The Car Seat Conundrum

(excerpted by the author)



Nobody ever knows what to get for a car seat. There are a surprising number of options from mainstream and specialty manufacturers. The car has become, after all, an extension of our homes, and the infant car seat in particular, an extension of baby’s crib, in itself an extension of mother’s womb.…

Puppy Loving Pigeons

So, I can read, big deal right. It was pointed out to me recently that with the death of J.D. Salinger all my favorite authors are dead. Just in case you wanted to know the others include Douglas Adams and a bunch of long gone philosophers. I don’t make nearly enough time for my own reading pleasure anymore and no where has that been more…

It's Not Fair

mso-ansi-language:EN-US;mso-fareast-language:EN-US"">When we first adopted our

daughter Bunny from Guatemala, I was in law school and rather than adopt her,

take her from the only home she knew and throw her into daycare…we opted for a

don't blink they grow up so quickly...

Just a "few" years ago I had my first little girl, Lauren. It seems like yesterday I was peeling her off my leg as she went off to her first day of preschool. So how can it be that we spent the last year planning her wedding? Mommies, don't blink soon you too will be sending off college applications via the internet and then planning color palettes and setting

wedding dates. All that to say I want to share this short 4 min wedding video…
