Many parents have a “gut feeling” when something is not right with their children. Sometimes it is just being paranoid, but many times parents really do have a “sixth sense” when it comes to their child’s health.
I wanted to share this article, because it does stress the important of trusting your instincts when it comes to your child. It gives a few great examples of mothers who knew something was not right and they were persistent until they found a doctor who would listen.
I have had times when I woke up and felt something was not right — like last week when I woke up with this feeling of something not being right and minutes later I heard the weather siren go off. I turned on the TV and there were tornado warnings for our area.
While there is no need to go overboard, do trust your parenting instincts! You know your child’s habits and behavior better than anyone.
