    How to make money from home.

Parenting isn’t easy.  It throws us many challenges.  One of these challenges includes selecting a pediatrician with which you and your children feel comfortable.  While a pediatrician should obviously be well educated and qualified, their are other things that also deserve consideration.

A pediatrician should have an excellent, child-friendly “bedside manner.”  If he or she is too cold and clinical, your child won’t feel comfortable.  He or she should be friendly, attentive, and engaging toward you, but also toward your child. 

A good pediatrician should take time to answer your questions to your satisfaction.  The doctor should also explain illnesses, treatments, and medications to your child in simple terms, so your child knows what to expect. 

You should be able to find good references for the doctor.  Ask friends, neighbors, other parents at school, and the local chamber of commerce about the pediatrician, to learn how long he or she has practiced in the area and to see if he or she has a good reputation in the community. 

You should also find out if the doctor is always overbooked, or if you will be able to get an appointment in a timely manner when necessary.  Also, it’s good to know if you will be able to reach the doctor after hours or in case of an emergency. 

Choosing a doctor for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make.  Don’t be embarrassed about researching him or her and asking lots of questions.  You have a right to know before you let someone treat your child.
