I would like to see refreshers on basic CPR and life saving skills. Those are always important to brush up on!

Tami Madsen said...

I would love to see something about how to teach my kids good internet safety. It seems that they can navigate better than I can, and it makes me worried! How can I teach a 5,7, and 11 year old?

The Perry's said...

I would love to see something on healthy habits for toddlers.

Barnes said...

I second the CPR refreshers.

Michelle Fogg said...

I love everything you post so this is a hard question, but I think something on how to foster high self esteem in your children and tips on how to take care of ourselves as parents too so we can be good caregivers!

Marcy said...

I have really enjoyed the posts. I would love to see helpful tips for toddler stuff like tantrums, lack of eating, dealing with siblings, how to not let your toddler run the house, etc. I often feel like I am doing something wrong and I'm almost always not. I also never know when to worry and when to not with all the above.
Also, I find myself doing (or not doing) things with my second child but went overboard with the first child. Some first parent tips and ah ha moments would be good. Maybe even ah ha moments from other parents as part of the posts vs just comments.
All the above comments are good too.

My oldest didn't give up her binky, bottle or potty train by the time others had told me she should. Yet, she is incredibly bright. My youngest didn't stop breastfeeding when everyone thought that he should. Dr. Memmott always been so good at reassuring me that my children are perfectly normal and will do things when they are ready, not when everyone else thinks they should be ready.
An article on something like this may be encouraging to parents of toddlers.
Also, I've never noticed anything in the office that says you are on Facebook. You should advertise that!

Boo said...

I would love to see information on the appropriate amount of tylenol/motrin you should give to your child depending on their age/weight, and info on fevers. I feel like I can never remember what is dangerous and when we should come in. :)

Stacey said...

I would like to see things about current events. Like the Health headlines and maybe talk about if they are true or not.

applesngiggles said...

I love the tips on talking to your children about disasters or other things going on in our world. Keep those coming. I would like to see more info on allergies and tips on handling those. Maybe some links to recipes.

Julie said...

I would like more information on how to feed picky toddlers to make sure they're getting proper nutrition.
Thanks,
Julie

Everytime I am in to see Dr. Jopling we talk about a new study he has read on different behaivors. It would be good to see some links to articles. Also if there are good home remedies to do for the little ones to help with differrent sicknesses it would be good. I am sure like any other parent I would do anything to make them comfortable when they are sick that is safe.

Cindy said...

I have thought a lot about the article about keeping active with your kids. WE all know how important it is. But sometimes we just feel too tired after the rush of pick up , homework, and dinner. But positive articles about adults who remember the precious time spent together just doing basic activiites of swimming, biking, and the conversations and memories are just fun to hear. I would like hearing more about remembering that these are "the good old days."

Janelle said...

I would like healthy kid friendly recipes. I would also like to see what sicknesses you are seeing in the office at a particular time so that if there is an influx of strep throat I would take my kid to the doctor faster so that if he does test positive we could get on antibiotics faster.

Miles Romney said...

I would like to see first aid tips, safety tips, some stories from Doctors, ways to help make the doctors jobs easier. Also, info on which sicknesses are most common at certain times of year. With our new baby, we want to learn everything we can!

Amber said...

I would like to see a refresher on seatbelt and car seat safety. It seems like the rules are always changing. :)

Kelsey said...

I would love to see some tips on building kids self esteem/confidence :)
Maybe some fun games/activites to do with your kids!

{Brittany} said...

I would love to see more of the same! Blog is informative and useful. Thanks!

Shannon said...

There are so many great suggestions! I would also like to see something about booster seat safety, specifically, the difference between the legal requirements and the AAP recommendations. Thanks!

Byrom Family said...

I would love to get info on how to cure children of sucking on thumbs or fingers. I have 2 that are doing this and I would love to have help to cure it!

Miranda said...

Spotlights on the staff's favorite children's books would be fun.

Alicia said...

I would also like to see refreshers on CPR.

Sam and Jess said...

I would like to hear from the Dr's. Maybe a favorite things list (favorite products, etc). Also any helpful tips advice.
