What other weapon, besides sunscreen, you can use to protect your child this summer

Posted: Updated:

Warm weather brings more opportunity for outdoor fun.

Dr. Richard Lampe, Chairman of Pediatrics at Texas Tech, says remember helmets protect the brain in bike and scooter accidents, but he says something else is good for the brain, inside

 "You can't be active all the time. You need to take a rest. And one of the ways is to exercises the brain. So, books, reading, are very good break to take from outdoor activities. Our brains are still developing as children are growing and it helps not only their language skills, but just helps them with their overall knowledge."

Dr. Lampe suggests what he calls a very good website for parents to use as a helpful resource in child development. Just go to healthychildren.org.
