Check out some tips from our Dr. Mom Squad and Kohl's A Minute for Kids on how to ensure your kids get enough shut eye! - See more at: http://blog.childrensdayton.org/making-time-for-some-shut-eye/#sthash.s6Edf9Fl.dpuf
Kids need plenty of sleep to rest their growing bodies and minds. When kids don’t get enough they can be at increased risk for obesity, poor school performance, behavioral problems and substance abuse.
It has been an amazing #GivingTuesday so far today! To all those who have given, one of our amazing cancer fighters Mariah has a special message for you!
I am so, so, SO grateful for Dayton Children’s and anyone who supports them. They have made my experience with cancer so easy and smooth. If you are supporting Dayton Children’s you are literally making the life of so many children just that much easier. I don’t think I could have gotten a better experience with another hospital than Dayton Children’s. I hope people will support #GivingTuesday so that other children that are just like me can have the same, if not better experience like I had. It’s such a great and worthy cause, and you seriously don’t want to miss out on this. - See more at: http://blog.childrensdayton.org/the-best-day-of-my-life/#sthash.KCWlRd0b.dpuf
