Soccer is a sport that relies entirely on your feet, and if one of your big toes gets sprained during a game, you are in trouble. Understanding the nature of toe sprains, how they will affect your game, and how to recover during games can help you get back on track as soon as possible.

As we age, our eyes do as well. One of the most common side effects of aging eyes is the development of cataracts. This is the clouding or darkening of the eye's lens. Since this lens is normally clear, you don't notice the lens during your daily activities. While cataracts are almost always associated with aging, it's important to note that cataracts can form at any age because of a variety of different factors.
If your child is interested in playing sports for the school or for a local league, there is a good chance that he or she is required to have a sports physical done. Even if this isn't a requirement for the league, it is a smart thing to do to ensure that your child is healthy enough to play sports. Regardless, you will need to bring a few things along when your child has his or her physical done, so make sure that you have these things with you when you go.
Having a child on the autism spectrum poses all kinds of unique challenges that can sometimes be very difficult. The sensory issues that often accompany spectrum disorders can mean that even everyday things like taking vitamins may be a serious struggle. For my son, it's both texture and taste that pose challenges for him, which made finding a vitamin supplement very difficult. After experimenting with many different brands, styles, and flavors, I have found what does and doesn't work for various sensory issues that he has. I've created this site to share our experiences in the hopes that it might help other parents with kids on the spectrum to find a vitamin their child will take.
