Review: "Kids Health"- A site with health information

"Kids Health" is one of the FREE resource which provides FREE information about kids health, which every parent should know. And as the site provides interactive and very interesting way of kids and teen's health information, it is attractive for kids and teens as well. So parents can provide the site links to their kids or teens.

Kids Health is the largest and most-visited site on the Web providing doctor-approved health information about children from before birth through adolescence.

KidsHealth provides families with accurate, up-to-date, and jargon-free health information they can use. It covers wide array of topics about medical, emotional and developmental issues of children and their families.

Created in 1995 by The Nemours Foundation's Center for Children's Health Media, has been accessed by about half a billion visitors. On a typical weekday, more than 500,000 visitors access KidsHealth's reliable information.

Physicians and other health experts review all content before it's published on KidsHealth. All content is re-reviewed on a regular basis (about every 1 to 3 years, or more frequently if needed). The content on KidsHealth is the equivalent of an 80-volume encyclopedia — and it's growing every week.

Why learning about health is important?

- Learning about health isn't just about medical diseases and conditions. It's also learning about the amazing ways the body works — and how to keep it working in the best way possible.
- It's about normal physical development and stages — and how they can differ from person to person. It's about the emotions and worries almost everyone faces — and how to keep things balanced.
- It's about stress that can interfere with daily life — and what to do to get some help.
- It's about thinking ahead so you can do the things you need to stay healthy — and how to prevent the things that can cause serious problems later on.
- It's about how families function in the good times — and in the bad.
- It's about the joys and challenges of parenting — and what families can do to help their kids and teens travel along the path that's best for them.
- It's about knowing you're not alone. It's about understanding yourself, your friends and family, and the world around you.
