Professor Alf Nicholson, a consultant pediatrician in Temple Street Children's University Hospital, Dublin, believes we are over-treating our sick children. We need to go back to commonsense medicine, where knowledge of how to deal with everyday illnesses was passed from one generation to the next. Due to changes in the way we live our lives, parents don't always have an older neighbor or family member on hand when a child gets sick and can panic unnecessarily. Distressed parents often turn to the internet where the sheer amount of information can lead to further panic and confusion. Alf Nicholson and Grainne O'Malley want to empower parents to help their sick children. Parents can do more to help if they have reliable information at hand. Alf Nicholson knows, from over twenty years experience of working with children, that most ailments are minor and can often be treated at home. When Your Child is Sick catalogues the top twenty ailments your child will face as he/she grows. This handy reference book will help to identify what's wrong, how to treat the illness at home and how to know when you need to call the doctor. There are also sections focusing on the new illnesses of childhood that are often controversial: obesity, asthma, allergies, and ADHD. There is also a guide to what every home medicine chest should contain (besides a copy of this book!)
