School nurses help fight diabetes

Georgia school nurses are on the front line in providing essential care during school hours that allows children with diabetes to stay in class and learn. With obesity, a contributing cause of type 2 diabetes, rising at epidemic rates among adolescents, the school nurses also provide wellness education to children, teachers and staff about how to avoid developing this debilitating - but, in most cases, preventable - chronic disease year-round. This especially is important in November, which is American Diabetes Month.

Leadership key when disciplining kids

Q: Several years ago, I married a widower who never disciplined his children. They now are 9, 14 and 16, and he still has a very difficult time denying them anything. I love them very much and think of them as my own, but I often feel like the "bad guy." In this situation, should he be the main disciplinarian? He's given me the responsibility (he has a very demanding job, thus his at-home hours are not reliable) and sometimes I feel like I'm drowning!

You can break a 1-year-old's habits

Q: My 1-year-old has started slapping us. He also screams a lot, often for no reason, or at least we can't figure out the reason. He is a very busy little boy and won't sit still for longer than a few seconds. Is it too early to begin disciplining him?
