Many Parents Who Think They Have Food Allergies Actually Don't
Huffington Post - 4 months
When kids have food allergies, the children’s parents may think they have food allergies too, but this is often not the case, a new study found. The study, which involved only parents of kids with food allergies, showed that many parents who reported also having food allergies didn’t actually have any. In fact, when the researchers conducted allergy tests on parents who thought they had these allergies, more than 70 percent of these parents tested negative. The study calls into question the reliability of people’s self-reports of allergies, the researchers said. The findings are also surprising, given that parents whose children have food allergies might be expected to have more knowledge than people in general about what counts as a food allergy, the researchers said. What’s more, the results suggest that a common practice may be a problem: Doctors often ask parents if they have food allergies as a way to determine whether their children will be at higher risk for develo ...

The More the Merrier: How Many Parents Can One Child Have?
Huffington Post - about 1 year
When we think of a family we think of a child or children and two parents. Historically, children did not have more than two parents under the law; the law originally contemplated a child have a mother and a father. In more recent times, a child could have two mothers and no father, or two fathers and no mother. In the present day, at least in California, a child could have three or more parents. This came to pass some time ago when the Second District Court of Appeal ruled on a case from dependency court known as In re M.C. 195 Cal. App. 4th 197. In M.C., two married women had a child who was conceived by one of the women with a man before the two married. One of the women is the biological mother, the other what we call the "presumed mother" because she was married to the biological mother at the time of birth and there is a legal presumption that a child born during marriage is the legal child of both parties. The sad facts of this case included a history of mental illness a ...

Many Parents of Autistic Kids Turning to Alternative Medicine
Psych Central - about 3 years
A new study finds  that families often turn to complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) for young children with autism and other developmental delays. Researchers at the University of California-Davis MIND Institute found that the most frequent users of alternative approaches were families with higher levels of parental education and income. “In our Northern California study population, it does not appear that families use complementary and alternative treatments due to the lack of availability of conventional services, as has been suggested by other research,” said Robin Hansen, M.D., chief of the Division of Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics in the UC Davis School of Medicine. “Rather, they use the treatments in addition to conventional approaches.” Alternative approaches include everything from mind-body medicine (meditation or prayer), homeopathic remedies, probiotics, and alternative diets to more invasive therapies such as vitamin B-12 injections, intravenous immuno ...

The Critical Custody Decision Many Parents Get Wrong
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Can joint custody inhibit an infant's attachment to his or her parents? According to a new study from researchers at the University of Virginia, infants who spent at least one night a week apart from their mothers formed less secure attachments to them, compared to babies who had fewer overnights away from home or stayed with their father only during the day. The researchers looked at data from the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study, a national longitudinal study of about 5,000 children born in large U.S. cities from 1998 to 2000. The data consisted of interviews with the children's parents at the time of birth and at ages 1 and 3. Samantha Tornello, the study’s lead author, said that the attachments that babies form during their first year of life serve as the foundation for healthy attachments and relationships into adulthood. Because increasing numbers of parents are living apart from one another due to separation, divorce and children being born out of we ...
