Emotional Wellness
June 2011 • #15
A Note from the Medical Editor
It can be simple to know when your child is physically healthy—she eats well, sleeps well, and plays or studies well, and there is no sign of fever or illness. A child’s emotional wellness, however, can be a little trickier. All kids have good days and bad, happy times and grumpy, and there are things parents can do to deal with mood swings. So keep alert for signs of emotional stress, overload, or anxiety. The following information may help as well. Of course if you need extra help, talk with your pediatrician.
