Concerns Unique To Kids
There's nothing more contagious than the laughter of young children; it doesn't
even have to matter what they're laughing about.”
Little kids,with their cute faces and runny noses,their innocent smiles and funny
poses,they can mealt the toughest heart and bring back a smile on the saddest face.This
is the age group which is probably toughest to handle as a parent..starting from
the 'Terrible Twos".This is the time the child begins to form its identity in relation
it its surroundings and people.Good and Bad habits are most easily picked up in
this age group .Hence Parents have to be extra alert.
This is also the time for teething,believed to be a nightmare by most parents,a
time when child learns to walk,falls,and walks again,a time to be visiting playschool
and learning to speak and sing.All these important FIRSTS happen in this age group.
When a baby tooth is lost too early, the permanent teeth can drift into the empty
space and make it difficult for other adult teeth to find room when they come in.
This can make teeth crooked or crowded.
That’s why starting infants off with good oral care can help protect their teeth
for decades to come. The IDA recommends that parents take children to a dentist
no later than their first birthday and then at intervals recommended by their dentist.
