I have discovered a blog by another nurse who specializes in children with emotional and behavioral issues. Sometimes kids with these problems are often misunderstood, and I found it refreshing to see someone with knowledge offering parents some advice.
- The symptoms and behaviors of children with ADHD, depression, and other mental illnesses cause the same stress as a child with cancer or special need. The answers for parents are even more difficult to find and often support for parents and kids dealing with these issues is absent.
Check out the blog of Lori Kloc RN for posts on chicken pox, ADHD, and medications. Several of the posts I read were very helpful in understanding some of the medications and side-effects. The blog can be reached at http://parentinganursesobservation.blogspot.com Read her past posts for some great information or to make a comment. Let me know what you think.
