in the loop children’s health

Frequent school-nurse visits might be a sign of bullying School bullying harms both victims and perpetrators, sometimes even ending with tragic results, as we’ve all seen too often on the news. In recent years, anti-bullying efforts have sprung up around the U.S. as policymakers try to tamp down the problem. But because bullying often occurs below the radar of parents and teachers, better ways to identify bullying must be found. New research headed by Eric Vernberg, a professor of clinical child psychology and director of the Child and Family Services Clinic at the University of Kansas, has shed light on a new method for detecting school peer aggression — repeated visits to the school nurse. His results recently were published in the journal Pediatrics. “In this study, there is a connection between how often kids self-report being the target or victims of aggression and how often they visit the school nurse over the course of the year,” Vernberg says. The researchers found that it is not only victims of bullying who make more visits to the nurse — it is aggressors as well. In the study, Vernberg and his co-authors compared school nurses’ logs with voluntary questionnaires completed by 590 children in grades 3 through 5. Students were

asked to “nominate” classmates who displayed hostile behavior toward others. (The students all were participants in a larger study of school violence.) “We also found this to be true in terms of how often a kid was nominated as being aggressive with their peers,” says Vernberg. “The more they were nominated, the more likely they were to have a higher number of visits to the school nurse.” What prompts such visits to the school nurse? For both the aggressors and their targets, Vernberg says that stressful interactions could bring on symptoms such as tension headaches, muscle and joint pain and chronic fatigue. Repeated involvement in bullying as the aggressor or target also causes stress that may weaken a child’s immune system, leaving

him or her vulnerable to illness. Injuries that may or may not be related to peer aggression were a third reason for visits to the school nurse. “We also look for an imbalance of power between the two people, so that the person who is the target of bullying isn’t able to effectively stand up for themselves or fight back,” Vernberg says. “The third thing we look for is an ongoing relationship between people, so it’s something that happens over time and is repeated.” Such interactions drive negative feelings that often linger with the aggressor and the target long after an antagonistic interaction. “It’s upsetting for the person involved in that kind of encounter,” says Vernberg. “It’s probably going to have some residual feelings such as, ‘This was unpleasant. I got in trouble for this. I have a problem with this person that may come up again in the future.’ It involves negative emotions.” The study concludes that school nurses and pediatric healthcare providers should prioritize prevention, early identification and treatment of aggressor-victim problems and mental and physical health problems that can happen as a result. Further, educators and parents might consider bullying to be a possible reason for a child making frequent school-nurse visits.

Enjoy the outdoors this month — and skip the asthma and allergy misery

A

UGUST MEANS outdoor fun at weddings, festivals and picnics. But uninvited guests ranging from stinging insects to grass pollen can ruin the fun if you have allergies and asthma. So think about your health needs before these events occur. “By planning ahead, people with allergies can still enjoy outdoor events,” says Myron Zitt, M.D., past president of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI). The ACAAI suggests following a few simple tips to make summer outdoor events more enjoyable:

Treat before you go. Take allergy medication before walking out the door. If you wait until symptoms kick in, the medication won’t be nearly as effective. Go undercover. Big, wrap-around sunglasses help keep pollen from getting into your eyes. (You’ll look cool, too.) Avoid bees. If you’re allergic to bees or other stinging insects, avoidance is your best bet. Keep your distance from uncovered food, be cautious of open soft-drink cans and resist wearing bright clothing or perfume, all of which attract bees. If someone near you gets stung, move

away. Some bees give off a chemical after they sting that can attract other stinging insects.

Be cautious at the food table.

Avoid foods in which nuts, dairy and other common allergens can be lurking, such as mixed salads, barbecue sauces and salad dressings. Stick to the middle. Poison ivy can lurk in bushes and other foliage, so stay in open areas where you’re less likely to brush up against it.

Pay attention to ozone alerts.

High temperatures mixed with pollution can pose a problem for people with asthma. Carry a quick-relief inhaler.

Reading rewards If your little one doesn’t think growing his brain with a good story is reward enough, try some bribery in the form of a story-related toy, like this Captain America. $14.99 at Local Heroes, 1905 Colonial Ave., Norfolk.

C

APTAIN AMERICA is in theaters

now, reminding us that it’s possible to overcome the odds - even if those odds

are getting your child to read: Some say

no to cracking a traditional book, but it’s the rare kid who can’t get engrossed in a comic book. Celebrate the colorful stories this month.

A play va-cay If you’ve caught the comic book craze in a big way, feed it with a trip to Virginia Commonwealth University’s comic collection, where they have over 42,000 comic books and 150,000 comic-book related items. Richmond, call (804) 828-0100.

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! They saw the movie, now they need to know more - and here’s how they can get all of their questions answered: The Captain America magazine. $7.99 (or try a Captain America comic book, $2.99-$3.99) Local Heroes, 1905 Colonial Ave., Norfolk.

What you need to do DOPRQGV Kids can combine cream cheese, sugar, orange zest and almond extract in a mixing bowl. Adults should cut a vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape the seeds into the cream cheese mixture. Adults should beat together the cream cheese mixture until light and fluffy. Kids can spoon cream cheese mixture into a pastry bag, or into a large plastic ziptop storage bag. Adults should cut a deep slit in each fig and spread apart. Kids can evenly fill each fig with the cream cheese mixture using the pastry bag, or using the plastic storage

bag after a corner has been cut off. Kids can top each fig with chopped, roasted almonds. Note: you can use vanilla extract or even a little milk or cream in place of the almond extract. You can use slivered almonds in place of chopped, roasted almonds. Note: to roast almonds, place whole, preheat oven to 350F. Place almonds on an ungreased cookie sheet and place in oven for about 10 minutes. Watch carefully; when they begin to turn golden and become fragrant, remove from the oven to cool; nuts continue to roast for a while even after they are

removed from the oven.

If you have a parenting question of your own, or if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to answer a question already asked, send your questions or responses to Jennifer Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell, editor, at jenny.odonnell@ pilotonline.com.

OK, there was one time on a long road trip when a CD of kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; songs somehow found its way into my carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stereo, but the pain in my ears was so tremendous that I pulled over and ran screaming into the woods. Fortunately, my wife caught me before I did anything really silly.

Our boys got enough exposure I believe - from hearing kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; songs in my wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car as well as at school and even in their bedrooms as they are slowly drifting off into little man dreamland. So I figured I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to suffer while we were driving around in my car and, at the same

time, I could expose them to much better music. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud to say that my children now ask to hear bands like Silversun Pickups and The Who when they get in my car and they would prefer to listen to Johnny Cash and even the blues when we are goofing around at home. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve exposed them to jazz, country, classical and just about every other musical genre. I love that my boys beg to sing along to Vampire Weekend and Mumford & Sons songs. I grin from ear to ear when they request R.E.M. I get even more excited when Kyle, the 3-year-old, tells me a song â&#x20AC;&#x153;doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rock enoughâ&#x20AC;? and that it â&#x20AC;&#x153;needs more guitars.â&#x20AC;?

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d already booked the campsite, rented the pop-up trailer and bought the bug spray when my spouse informed us of his latest schedule change and trip overseas. Impulsively, I decided that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d go anyway. I might not be able to handle towing a trailer, but I had been a Girl Scout, I could pitch a tent and build a fire.

Thank you for your service and sacrifice! 62 | A U G U S T 2 0 1 1 | www.MyTidewaterMoms.com

Right? So when the Camp Host wandered over to inspect my middle-of-a-rainstorm tent pitching skills and asked â&#x20AC;&#x153;uh, will a Mr. Galvez be along soon?â&#x20AC;? my reaction was to smile sweetly and think, â&#x20AC;&#x153;why, does it look like I need a man to go camping with my kids?â&#x20AC;? Ironically, when I told my friends


this story after our woodsy adventure, their first reaction was of one of alarm for my safety not my pride. In the weeks leading up to the camping trip, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been increasingly overwhelmed, overburdened and overstressed due to work, graduate school, my impressive summer schedule and single parenting. By the time the weekend was over, I was marveling at how refreshed, relaxed and recharged I was. Amazing and unexpected feeling given that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d spent three days trapped in a tent with my three children, most of it in the rain, without: any cell service (incredibly bad news for my teenage texter), our microwave, my make up and bug-free showers. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also because there were

no distractions. I even forgot to pack my book. But for the first time in a long time I was able to give my children my undivided attention and we all needed that. We hiked, mountain biked, swam, boated, cooked over an open fire, made sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;mores and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take a bath for two days, learned about local flora, fauna and animals and thoroughly enjoyed each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company. My kids got along amazingly well, caught fireflies, and discovered peace and quiet. The camp host whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d seriously underestimated me and I, who had started to have real doubts about my sanity and solo adventures, realized that a military spouse is quite capable of just about anything when faced with a challenge and an absent husband.

And by the way, admission to Virginia State Parks is free this summer for military members and their families through the end of the year. According to Gov. Bob McDonnell, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a small gesture of appreciation for the women and men who have given so much to defend our liberty and freedom. There are 327,000 active duty military personnel, and families, as well as 823,000 armed forces veterans, who make their homes here in Virginia. We hope many will take advantage of this opportunity.â&#x20AC;?
