Photo: Minding Your Child's Health: A Passport to Your Child's Well Being; A Ticket to Your Peace of Mind

PLAINVIEW, N.Y., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Few things are as important to remember than the details of your child's health records, yet when a family's overly scheduled world collides with a son or daughter's illness, vital information about the ailment can be forgotten during a visit to the pediatrician.

To view the Multimedia News Release, go to:

Born of a need experienced by a parent with a sick child, Minding Your Child's Health, a diary-formatted book, allows you to keep a comprehensive record of all of your child's milestones, including growth, immunizations, as well as complete details of current symptoms and past illnesses.

"With only 10-15 minutes allotted for each child's one-on-one with the doctor, having immediate access to your notes regarding the problem could well save a return trip to the office, and might even provide an early life-saving diagnosis," says Debra Hecht, President of Perfect Helpers, who created Minding Your Child's Health,

The precise tracking this handy tool provides takes on added significance when attempting to diagnose conditions that tend to be manifested by a wide array of often-vague symptoms. "A retracing of steps could well offer a much-needed clue to a current medical concern," Hecht says.

Also included are sections for organizing specific questions and/or concerns for your child's doctor visit, space to make notes during and following the exam, and an area in which to chronicle family medical history.

"Indeed, the importance of taking such a matter into our own hands cannot be overstated; and now we can -- quite literally," Hecht says.

Hecht will soon release another book, Minding Your Health, a symptom and health diary designed for elder patients and their adult children overseeing their care.

"With life expectancy increasing and chronic medical conditions on the rise, being prepared and organized and having all the facts at your fingertips is crucial when speaking with the doctor," Hecht says.
