Welcome to KidsHealth!
Good health is about more than just the muscles and bones in a kids body – it’s also about how they feel and how they act. At KidsHealth, you can read about things that affect your childs emotions and behavior as well as all of the things that affect them physically. We explain how the body works from before birth through the teen years in ways that are easy to understand and fun to use!
KidsHealth is some of the most-visited health information on the Web. Pediatricians and other medical experts frequently and carefully review all of the information in the Kids Health articles, animations, and games to make sure they are accurate and up-to-date. While KidsHealth can never replace a personal visit with a doctor who can examine you and answer questions, we can help you and your child learn about and develop healthy habits that last a lifetime.
Parents can play a crucial role in helping teens succeed in school by lending a little help, support, and guidance, and by knowing what problems demand their involvement and which ones require them to hang back.
