Infant Safety Classes
Unfortunately, babies do not come with directions! It is our job as parents to keep them safe. The Children’s Clinic would like to see how many parents would be interested in a child safety class that include topics such as: CPR, sleeping positions, SIDS, and car seat safety.
If interested, please fill out the form below. You will be contact should we decide to offer a class like this.

Are you having trouble getting your children to do their chores? You should an the ChoreMonster app that was recommended by one of our parents. ChoreMonster is a app available online, or for your iPhone or Windows phone.
How does it work?
For parents, you can quickly schedule chores to be done with point values. When your child says they are done, you approve and then they get their points. Add rewards that your kids can “purchase” from their point collection. A reward can be anything from a fun activity, money, gift, or camping trip.
For kids, they sign into the ChoreMonster mobile or web app that is easy to navigate for kids. They will see their chores for the day. Once they have completed the chore, they mark it with a “thumbs up”. They can save up their points for a reward. After each chore they also get to spin the wheel that gives new monsters for them to collect.
Visit them online for more information. You can also see the screen shots below to see inside the app.
Question: If you were allergic to Penicillin as a child, can you outgrow it?
Answer: Yes, children usually do outgrow it. It’s important to note, however, that most children who are thought to have the allergy by their parents actually do not (when tested by an allergist). An even higher percentage – perhaps 80 to 90 percent – of adults who think they are allergic to Penicillin are incorrect. As a result, instead of tried and true Penicillin, they usually end up with a broad-spectrum antibiotic that’s not only more expensive but may have more side effects and be less effective. If you think you are allergic to Penicillin, you can be tested by an allergist to confirm it.

Doctors Walk for MS
The Children’s Clinic recently participated in the Walk MS – Northeast Arkansas on team Docs Fight MS Walk on April 26, 2014 at Jonesboro High School. Docs fight MS raised 11,340.00 for the cause.
The walk is a fundraiser for finding the cure for Multiple sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling, disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Millions of people are affected by MS and the challenges of living with its unpredictable symptoms, which range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.
