As the weather warms outside and cabin fever is on the rise, parents often become bombarded with advertisements to register for sports camps and summer camps. Newsletters, emails, and marketing brochures all suggest that “good” parents and “happy” children are signing up for a variety of extracurricular activities, but when is it appropriate for your child?

Nosebleeds are common in kids ages 3-10 years, but usually stop on their own and can be treated safely at home.

If your child has a nosebleed, stay calm and reassure the child that it isn't a big deal. Then have the child sit upright with the head tilted slightly forward. Squeeze the soft part of the nose gently (just below the bony ridge) with a tissue or clean washcloth. Continue to apply pressure to the nose for approximately 10 minutes.

It’s Cold Outside!
