Dr. Larimore says, "I’ve written this book for moms and dads who want to raise highly healthy children." This volume contains advice, interesting stories, and experiences of many physicians and patients. It also contains pertinent research, a health assessment for parents to take to determine how they are doing with their children and health-related principles from Scripture.

As with his book geared toward adults, the doctor shares a list of ten essentials for raising highly healthy children. On the list are: being proactive in preventing physical disease, ensuring proper nutrition, providing adequate protection for your children, nurturing family relationships, instilling a balanced self-concept, et al.

There is so much packed into this book for parents, and it probably covers most of the questions you have about the health of your child—from a physical, mental, relational and spiritual perspective. A wonderful resource to have on hand.
