9780061127755: Good Kids, Bad Habits: The RealAge Guide to Raising Healthy Children

When kids start going on TV binges or devouring fistfuls of cookies, it's easy to say, "They'll grow out of it." More likely, they're acquiring bad habits that could lead to childhood obesity and chronic adult diseases, from diabetes and depression to heart trouble and osteoporosis.

But by making simple changes now, you can help your children avoid these problems later. Good Kids, Bad Habits supplies the tools you need, starting with the unique RealAge® Healthy Kids Test. Based on the proven RealAge Test, which measures biological—not calendar—age, the Healthy Kids Test reveals where children are doing fine and where they're headed for health trouble.

Regardless of the problem—from sleeplessness to video-game addiction—Dr. Jen has seen and solved it all, working with parents and kids together. Her insightful tips, preventive steps, and kid smarts, learned from working with thousands of children, make this book invaluable. It will help your kids grow into the healthiest adults they can be—while still allowing them to be kids.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Good Kids, Bad Habits: The RealAge Guide to Raising Healthy Children, Jennifer Trachtenberg, Do bad childhood habits develop into unhealthy adult conditions? Pediatrician and author Jennifer Trachtenberg says they do. The fact of the matter is that unhealthy lifestyle habits that plague us later in life develop from an early age. The good news is that these potentially debilitating conditions and precursors to adult diseases can be prevented or lessened by making some very simple lifestyle adjustments. "Good Kids, Bad Habits" provides kids and parents with the means to make a personalised program using the "BehaviorRater" test. Once a basic personalised program is created readers can use the RealAge metric to understand how certain healthy habits will benefit the child in later years. The rest of the book is organised by subject so parents can also jump right to the topic that interests them most, whether it's nutrition or the effects of sleep deprivation.
