Ask the Pediatrician:
By: Kristie E. N. Clarke, MD, MSCR, FAAP
1017_SDM_family_Doc.jpgIn a new report, the AAP reminds parents that children, when cognitively able, should be involved in decisions about their own care. It's not just for the big decisions, either. Smaller decisions can have a big impact over time and can help in their understanding of their condition and treatments, reduce fear, and enhance self-confidence. 
The AAP and are teaming up for an Ask the Pediatrician Facebook Live event on Mon Oct 23 at 1:00pm ET. Ask questions and get answers about developmental and behavioral issues that can impact your child’s learning and academic success.
