  • My son has ADHD. Is medication safe for him?

    To the Parent with a Concern: In my practice as a developmental pediatrician, I am MUCH more concerned about the cause of a child’s inattention and FIRST want a comprehensive evaluation of his/her learning and cognitive abilities including language. Then I become focused on what to do about those causes. Medication unless administered along with other – often multiple – interventions invites long-term complications that amount to a bandaid over the cause. Sincerely, Sharon McDonough-Means, MD READ MORE

  • My daughter is 7 years old and is a fussy eater. How can I supplement her nutrition?

    Dear Mom, The issue is not what to add, but what is the CAUSE of her fussy eating. That is needed before you can decide what else to give her. Sincerely, Sharon McDonough-Means, MD READ MORE
