Abstract

The family physician has the opportunity to aid families in attaining maximal health for their children. The developmental dynamics of children allows the physician to utilize his full armamentarium in providing prevention. acute and chronic illness care, as well as the social and behavioral needs of the child and family. Health practices developed by young families have the potential to be carried through generations. In addition the commitment to their children’s health is frequently an avenue to improve the health of parents and even the extended family.
