Good Kids, Bad Habits: The RealAge Guide to Raising Healthy Children

Good Kids, Bad Habits: The RealAge Guide to Raising Healthy Children Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kids will be kids, which, among other things, means that they develop some unhealthy habits, like riding bicycles without a helmet, watching too much TV, or eating too many cookies. And for the most part, as they get older and become responsible adults, kids learn to shed those bad habits that lead to adult diseases like osteoporosis, high cholesterol, and obesity.

The fact of the matter is that unhealthy lifestyle habits that plague us later in life develop from an early age. The good news is that these potentially debilitating conditions and precursors to adult diseases can be prevented or lessened by making some very simple lifestyle adjustments. GOOD KIDS, BAD HABITS provides kids and parents with the means to make a personalized program that will help children grow into the healthiestadults they can be.

A comprehensive "BehaviorRater" test sets the stage for the book, and helps parents target which areas a child should focus on improving, whether it involves cutting down on sugar, getting more exercise, or making the right choices under the duress of peer pressure. Once a basic personalized program is created (which accounts for a child's age, temperament, and other unique factors), readers can use the RealAgeand#174; metric to understand how certain healthy habits will benefit the child in later years.

GOOD KIDS, BAD HABITS will help parents encourage their kids to enjoy exercise, eat right, manage stress, and develop healthy intellectual and emotional habit

Synopsis:

In this easy-to-understand guide, a pediatrician helps parents raise healthy kids. Dr. Trachtenberg promotes simple lifestyle adjustments to offset the biggest health risks today's children face.

Synopsis:

When kids start going on TV binges or devouring fistfuls of cookies, it's easy to say, "They'll grow out of it." More likely, they're acquiring bad habits that could lead to childhood obesity and chronic adult diseases, from diabetes and depression to heart trouble and osteoporosis.

But by making simple changes now, you can help your children avoid these problems later. Good Kids, Bad Habits supplies the tools you need, starting with the unique RealAge® Healthy Kids Test. Based on the proven RealAge Test, which measures biological—not calendar—age, the Healthy Kids Test reveals where children are doing fine and where they're headed for health trouble.

Regardless of the problem—from sleeplessness to video-game addiction—Dr. Jen has seen and solved it all, working with parents and kids together. Her insightful tips, preventive steps, and kid smarts, learned from working with thousands of children, make this book invaluable. It will help your kids grow into the healthiest adults they can be—while still allowing them to be kids.
