The focus of this chapter is on special topics regarding young children (under age 10) and older adolescents (over age 14). The methods included in this chapter are intended to be implemented either now or as preparation for when the child grows older. For parents of young children, detailed instruction is provided on how to manage their child’s medications, teach young children to swallow pills, encourage positive coping skills, support physical activity, and set appropriate limits. For parents of older adolescents, instruction is provided in methods to help communicate more effectively with teens and support teens’ emerging independence, and how to talk to teens about risky health behaviors such as tobacco and alcohol use.
