Parental depression, substance abuse, family violence, or marital discord can all have profound effects on children’s health and development.
You place an age-appropriate book on the examination table, indicating to the child that the book is for her. You begin your interview with the mother and try not to look at the girl. Out of the corner of your eye, you see that her crying is easing a bit and she has begun to examine the book you had placed on the table. Questions 1. How does children’s age influence their understanding of health and illness? 2. Should physicians speak directly with children about their illnesses? 3. At what age can children begin to communicate with physicians about their illnesses?

Pediatricians should take a few minutes to enjoy children; this not only gives children a chance to evaluate their physicians but also allows clinicians to begin assessing areas of development. A general principle of the pediatric examination is to begin with the least invasive portions of the examination (eg, heart, lungs, abdomen) and save the most invasive for last (eg, oropharynx, ears).
