Although the majority of children with febrile seizures do not need medication, children especially prone to febrile seizures may be treated with medication, such as diazepam, when they have a fever. This medication may lower the risk of having another febrile seizure. It is usually well tolerated, although it occasionally can cause drowsiness, a lack of coordination, or hyperactivity. Children vary widely in their susceptibility to such side effects.
I only had one director in mind when thinking about this book, and I was shocked to know that she’d only directed two films. Shainee Gabel directed the fantastic documentary Anthem and went on to write the adaptation for and direct A Love Song For Bobby Long which is a careful handling of difficult family issues. Content-wise, the films have nothing to do with “A Child Called It,” but there’s something thematically there that stuck her in my mind. The more I thought about it, the more it made sense.
In the heart breaking story "A Child Called It by Dave Pelzer" a young boy tries to survive child abuse. I for one believe that this story is trying to tell you to be grateful for what you have. I believe this because trough out the story the protagonist (Dave) was experiencing abuse by his own mom. The story starts out by telling you about the boy's live before child abuse. It all seems like if the boy's live will be perfect, but it isn't. As the story goes on the marriage between the mom and the dad start's to get rough. The mother believed that it was Dave's fault so she start's punishing him. The mom start's off punishing him by making him do chores and stuff like that, but then it gets serious when the mom starts taking food away from the boy forcing him to steal. The mother tries many killing attempts but none of them work. The mother tried burning, choking, and starving the boy. In the story the dad tries to help the kid but he can't do much. His brothers also turned to the mom's side and started mistreating Dave. The story end's when child abuse police came in and taken away the boy from the mom's hand's. This heart breaking book I recommend to anyone who will like to learn a sad story about a little boy. Trough his entire problem's somehow he managed to survive his harsh live with his mom.
We adults don’t read children’s minds, but we often imagine that we can. So we usually think we’re aware of what’s too much tickling and when to stop. But it is possible to trap our children without knowing it.
