Getting the Best Results for Your Child

This is the most important chapter of this book. Everyone wants the best results for his or her child, but not everyone understands that you have to go out and get them. Reading this book means you are off to a good start.

There are three major determinants of the outcome of any project: your level of effort and knowledge, the effort and knowledge of the people who work with you, and luck. No one can control luck, so it is very important to maximize your efforts and choose the best possible people to work with. First and foremost, you need a primary care physician you trust. If you simply picked your doctor from a book or you go to a group where you get a different doctor every time, make sure someone is listening to your concerns. If you think something is wrong with your child, make sure the doctor listens and examines your child carefully.

Few pediatricians have any training in muscle, bone, and joint diseases. Many think they have never seen a case of arthritis in childhood. Do not be afraid to press your concerns or to seek another opinion. Sometimes you have to insist. This book will help you determine whether there is really something wrong, but it is not a replacement for a good doctor.
