Your Child's Visits - Four Year Visit

Diet:

Teach your child moderation- fill up on healthy foods, but allow small, occasional portions of treats that you find acceptable (i.e. Friday night fun dessert.)

Safety:

Your child may be able to transition to a booster seat in the car- be sure that the seat belt lies on her lap (not over belly) and the shoulder strap does not cut into her neck.
Never leave your preschooler unattended by water, even if he knows how to swim.
Reinforce the importance of using helmets with any riding toy/bike/skates.
Continue to teach stranger safety.
Start teaching your child their home address and phone number.
