MONDAY, July 22, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Sarah Clark was happy to get the call from her college teen, but couldn't believe what she was hearing. "My kid called from college and said, 'I'm sick, what should I do?'" Clark said. "I'm like, what do you mean what do you do? You have a drug store down the street. Go have at it." A new poll co-directed by Clark found that there are a lot of parents in the same boat. Most parents think they are doing enough to prepare their teens for adulthood, but they're wincing a bit as the time comes for their young to leave the nest, the survey reports. It turns out parents aren't especially confident that their kids are fully prepared to take care of their own money management and health care, said Clark.

MONDAY, July 22, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Plastic surgery is no longer the sole domain of women, and men now have even more incentive to try a little nip-and-tuck on their faces: New research suggests they look more attractive and trustworthy to others. The study included 24 men, average age 49 years, who had one or more of the following procedures: upper eyelid lift, reduction of lower eyelids, face-lift, brow-lift, neck-lift, nose reshaping, and/or a chin implant. More than 150 people were asked to look at photos of the men before and after their surgery and rate them on personality (aggressiveness, extroversion, likeability, risk-seeking, sociability, trustworthiness), attractiveness and masculinity. The photos of the men after their procedures scored significantly higher in...

MONDAY, July 22, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- The start of school is just around the corner, but a leading pediatricians' group warns that many kids entering kindergarten lack the skills they need to succeed in class. To help parents get their young ones ready to start school, the American Academy of Pediatrics has just released a report on what helps boost success as well as what factors may hinder kids' school experience. "We've kind of focused on the acquisition of pre-academic skills, but that's not what's most important," said report author Dr. P. Gail Williams. She's an executive committee member of the AAP's Council on Early Childhood. What is important, she said, is that parents "instill in children a love of learning, enjoyment of books, early literacy, appropriate play,...

Health Tip: Diarrhea in Kids

16 July 2019
(HealthDay News) -- Diarrhea typically is not a sign of a serious illness in children, says KidsHealth. But it's important to make sure that if your child has diarrhea, lost fluids and nutrients are replaced. Depending on the severity of diarrhea, KidsHealth suggests: Continue your child's regular diet and provide more liquids. Offer extra breast milk or formula to infants. Use an oral rehydration salt to replace lost fluids. Avoid sweet drinks. If your child vomits repeatedly, has bloody diarrhea or has severe belly pain, seek prompt medical care.
