I am glad she mentioned the street. Harassment on street and on public transportation is still a big problem and there seems to be no way to address it.

Why can't any drug company come up with and the FDA approve an injectable device for glucagon for the kind of severe hypoglycemia suffered by people on insulin? My child has type 1 diabetes and can d more »

This article is just plain silly.

For those with kids with preexisting conditions that are chronic, the Affordable Care Act is a godsend.
And I hope states that did not extend Medicaid change their minds at some point.

If Republican-led states had cooperated more with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, perhaps the polls numbers would be better. Of course the website disaster and enrollment challenges are more »

Those who report a family to DCF cannot be sued. Big problem.

Children's files a lot of 51A's with DCF. It is important to realize that this case was not unusual at the outset, but has become unusual as it evolves and in the amount of media attention it has rece more »

In "The Smartest Kids in the World", there is a description of a kind of pillow that South Korean students wear on their arms during daytime school, so they can sleep. Their real academic work happens more »

If only all doctors could experience this and other strange sensations, that some patients have, not for one night, but indefinitely. Many patients give up and don't go to the doctor at all after a fe more »

From the vantage point of a layperson and parent of grown children, I think giftedness is a more complicated phenomenon than this article would indicate. For instance, some gifted kids will take longe more »

I hope the mayor reads this and gets it.

Young females are often harassed on public transportation. This isn't covered in the media much, but it happens every day. And some harassers are dangerous rather than merely bothersome. As for using more »

These ideas ignore how children really learn. Children learn at different rates developmentally, in the younger grades,and the brain needs rest in order to consolidate learning- including time to play more »

These kids are growing up with a focus on getting in, and when they do get in, they can suffer depression. They are raised to be always thinking about a resume and some future achievement and don't kn more »

I didn't say she doesn't have mitochondrial disorder. People who are ill can have several things going on at once. Some of the symptoms, even apparently minor ones (red lines on skin) mentioned in the more »

I hope a reporter does a story on how many 51A's Children's files. It would seem that they use 51A's to transfer liability to DCF. It it not possible to sue them for inappropriate 51A's: no mandated r more »

Munchhausen by Proxy has been discredited and now parents are accused, instead, of "medical abuse.," which will also be demonstrated to be extremely rare after being wielded against parents for some y more »

Does the 59% or parents who take their kid(s) out to eat weekly include fast food? Local sub or pizza shops? I suspect so. One great strategy: wait a few years. The prices cited ($470 for two without more »
