This includes a varied, healthy diet, a protective home, positive upbringing and, for young people, the opportunity to develop and pursue their own goals.
Home, school, friends, and the wider community are important to children. Parents have a crucial, responsible role in being role models for their children first, and later then to be their supporters, so that they can later become independent, responsible adults.
Your paediatrician has the task of providing advice, offering check-ups and, in the event of illness to offering evidence-based medicine that finds the best treatment together with the family.
