  • Does your child have obsessive compulsive disorder?
    Would you know if your child has OCD? Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a type of anxiety disorder that causes children to behave in particular ways repeatedly due to constant worrying. It’s normal for children to worry, but when a child is unable to stop worrying or excessively worries, and those worries are followed by urges to perform an action repeatedly, OCD could be the cause.
  • Plano mom throws a pink polka dot Minnie Mouse party
    The day after her third birthday, Sophia Ramirez began asking her mother Hilda when she’d turn 4. After receiving a Minnie Mouse toy as a gift, Sophia had her mind set on a theme for next year. “She specifically asked for pink Minnie,” Hilda laughs. “And every day we would have a conversation about it. For literally a year it’s been Minnie-this and Minnie-that.”

But in 2013 Texas saw 82 child drowning deaths — in and out of the water — according to the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. While successfully avoiding all drowning situations is ideal, if a near-drowning occurs, your child could be at risk of swimming-induced pulmonary edema.
