This week on MD for Moms, I interview Dr. Alberto Escallon about children’s mental health, how to identify if your child has focus, attention or anxiety issues and how to help. Could your child’s acting out be a cry for help? Learn the signs of ADHD, childhood anxiety and more so you can be their greatest ally rather than their sparring partner.
