Childrens asthma attacks can be caused by a reaction to certain substances or airborne irritants. This can then irritate the airways causing excessive mucus to be produced by the body in an attempt to lubricate the dry airway. The build-up of this mucus can cause […]
Asthma in children is often caused by a specific stimulus in the forms of common asthma irritants. These irritants cause dryness in the airways, therefore it compensates by producing excessive amount of mucus as lubrication but it only adds up to an already distressed airway. As the airway gets narrowed, oxygen supply starts to deplete resulting to shortness of breath. The wheezing sound of the cough is resulted by mucus build up in the lungs.
The irritation created by a certain stimuli causes inflammation on the bronchi (passage airways) leading to a constricted airway. Asthma in children is usually triggered by exercise, allergy, irritants, infections, weather and even emotion. These triggering factors constitute a possible asthma attack. That is why proper child care of asthma in children should be given.
Every time your child has an asthma attack, even if it is just a mild shortness of breath, make a note of what they were doing at the time. This will help a great deal in identifying any stimuli or irritants that are causing the child’s asthma. Once you know what you are dealing with it makes it a great deal easier to try and avoid these circumstances in future and control your child’s asthma.
Caring for a Child With Asthma
To help you with the proper management of your child’s asthma you will need the assistance of health professionals. Your child’s physician would be the most suitable person to give advice regarding the best treatment plan for the present asthma condition of your child. You should find a physician whom you can trust and can easily communicate with.
In severe cases a strict asthma management plan may have to be followed to control your child’s asthma. It is vital in these cases to establish a good relationship with your child’s physician and be prepared to ask questions if there is anything you do not understand in the management plan. Don’t forget that you may have to explain your child’s asthma management to her carer or school teacher.
Proper child care of asthma in children involves compliance to the treatment; knowledge on the disease and support from the family. These are the 3 important steps that every parent should bear in mind in order to keep their child’s asthma always under control.
An asthma attack is definitely unpredictable but once you are prepared it can easily be stabilized. Being able to stabilize your child’s asthma condition will lessen the burden that asthma inflicts to your child. Certainly, your child’s asthma condition would generate improvements with appropriate asthma home management while consistently coordinating with health professionals.
Do not allow your concern for your child’s welfare to affect your relationship with your child. What she needs most is your reassurance that you can help her manage her asthma and your love is as important to her wellbeing as any medication.
It seems like asthma is becoming ever more prevalent these days. No doubt you’ve heard about it. But if you’ve never experienced an asthma attack, you probably don’t know what goes on during one. If you’ve just been diagnosed with the condition, here are some […]

Most people don’t think financial planning is for them. Some think they are not rich enough to worry about such things, others believe they are rich enough so do not need to bother with financial planning. But financial planning is for everyone no matter what your current financial status?
If you have no wealth then you need a plan for creating it, using ideas such as compounding growth combined with regular saving. If you already have wealth then you need to ensure it is protected, from areas such as tax, liabilities in business or relationships, or from financial failure of banks and market turmoil, whilst at the same time ensure you are receiving a good enough yield.
Why is Financial Planning so Important for your Family?
In reality we are all financial planners and most people have a financial plan on some level, whether they are trying to learn about managing debt, find the best interest rates, save for education, buy a house, save for retirement, almost everything we do requires some form of financial plan.
The most important aspect of financial planning is being prepared for the unexpected as well as the expected. On a basic level we are all expected to retire, so we must plan for that, if we have children we must plan for them areas such as school fees for example. But preparing for the future is simply essential and remember the unexpected can happen at any time.
Will you be prepared for the coming government debt crisis; it will most likely last a decade in Europe and the USA, and will cause a social security crisis? Competition from countries such as India and China’s new workforces will add to the unemployment of the west. The current economic crisis?
Do you have a plan for when you lose your job or for when stocks crash once again? Those are just a few examples of what you should be prepared for. It takes a lot of work, and a healthy dose of realism. No need to panic as that is what we at Parmafey are here for; we will help you build a financial plan that relates directly to your needs and your goals.
How do I get started?
There’s a lot of information on our website and we are adding to it on a daily basis. We will cover everything from retirement planning to bank deposits and tax. We will show you how to ensure that no matter what happens in the world at large your plan will be built on a solid platform; that will withstand all the things that are sure to happen between now and the day you retire.
For example if you have more than 15 years before you retire the odds are that there will be at least one more financial crisis. So what can you do to ensure your assets work hard enough during this time without placing them at undue risk?
None of us can foresee the future, although it is fairly easy to see trouble coming. Use your common sense, if every country in the west has high unemployment, with interest rates at almost zero and very little to no GDP growth. This should tell you that something is fundamentally wrong? Combine this with high levels of debt in almost all Western Countries and there is certainly something to worry about? The possibility of a recovery that will take a decade or longer is the most likely outcome and none of this can be good for equities surely?

Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon Stacks Deck in favor of Controversial Vaccination Bill SB277
In a rare act of outright rigging the results of a vote on SB277, President Pro Tem, Kevin de Leon, reconfigured the Senate Education Committee to stack deck in favor of passing SB277.
De Leon filled a position on the committee which has been vacant for months with Senator Bill Monning, who already voted for the bill in Health committee. Adding one vote in favor of the bill wasn’t enough. He also removed the Vice Chair of the committee, Sena-tor Huff, an ardent opponent of the bill, and replaced him with Senator Runner. It is unknown what her position is on the bill. Neither of the newly appointed senators heard any of the nearly three hour hearing on this measure last week.
“That bill should have died in committee last Wednesday. Instead of taking a vote and letting it die, the bill gets postponed for a week so the author can work on amendments. It’s currently scheduled as a “vote only item” Wednesday. That means no one in opposition will get to testify on whatever amendments the author proposes. How is that good government,” asked Sylvia Pimentel, State Director of the Canary Party, and member of the California Coalition for Family Health Choice (CCHC).
“This is yet another example of the lack of transparency and accountability in government. It should not be allowed,” said Pimentel.
CCHC is a grassroots umbrella organization that advocates for the preservation of parental rights regarding medical decisions for their children. CCHC represents thousands of parents, healthcare professionals and concerned citizens who oppose SB277.
Senator Richard Pan, Senator Ben Allen, and Assembly member Lorena Gonzalaz introduced Senate Bill 277 on February 19, 2015, to remove the personal belief exemption that currently allows parents to make healthy choices which vaccines are given to their children. This is a violation of […]
