 what do I need to do to protect my child’s skin?

 what do I need to do to protect my child’s skin?

Sunscreen: I will assume you are referring to protection against the sun. A quality, un-expired, SPF 30 sunscreen applied every hour to sun exposed skin will help protect the skin. Better yet, long sleeve clothing, hat and an umbrella would be ideal. One only needs to burn twice in their life to be at increased risk for skin cancer. Help your kids develop this good habit. ...Read more

Are there any kids with rickets in the U.S. nowadays?

Are there any kids with rickets in the U.S. nowadays?

Hard to find: Rickets requires a deficiency of vitamin D to extremely low levels. The usual RDA of 400 u per is designed to totally prevent this condition and vit D is usually added to milk. I imagine there are a few kids somewhere in the USA with extreme diets (enforced by well meaning parents) or with severe malabsorption problems who might have the condition.

Constantly anxious (pan. Attacks) about "breaking rules". I think I make up most of these rules. What are possible reasons? S/abused as a child...

Good insight: You have good insight about your own possibly making up rules, perhaps well-practiced from a young age with your family. This is very common in people with histories of abuse. Working with your own therapist can help you discover more about this, and help you recover. Trying to do it all by yourself is more lonely than you need to be, and can leave you spinning your wheels. Good luck to you. ...Read more
