When kids wake up feeling ill, parents often have to make a quick judgment call about whether or not they’re well enough to go to school. This month’s Mott Poll report highlighted the struggle parents face when deciding what to do with their sick child.
Traveling during the holiday season can be hectic – and for parents traveling with toddlers, there is even more to juggle and manage. Packing extra snacks and activities to keep kids entertained during the trip aren’t the only things parents need to consider when leaving home.
Teens are known for trying new things - from the clothes they wear to the foods they eat. This month’s Mott Poll report focused on the subject of teens’ special diets and how they impact their families.
