"...chock-full of images that accompany verbal pictures or stories that are designed to help the reader remember the most important bottom-line concepts...uses acronyms, mnemonics, and other memory tools."
Check out these kids and they will help you remember milestones for these ages. Developmental task is TRUST versus MISTRUST (Erikson).
0-3 months-Recliner is in the RECLINING position. His head lags. At two months lifts head and chest off bed. Totally dependent. Provide safe, allergy-proofed toys which are soft, cuddly and colorful.
3-6 months-SITTER-Starts rolling over. Six months of age can SIT for short periods of time leaning forward on hands. Birth weight may double at 6 months.
6-9 months-BOUNCER OR CRAWLER -Can pull self to a sitting position. They start bouncing so much that they bounce out and start crawling by 8-9 months. Everything goes in the mouth. Safety precautions!
9-12 months-CRUISER OR WALKER-Walks with help. This age loves to cruise around furniture. The birth weight may triple and length increased by 50% (12 months). Shows stranger anxiety; clings to mother. Continues in solitary play and can entertain self for short periods of time.
These children are "Into everything," have temper tantrums, and are called the "Terrible Two's". The typical words used with the toddler are "NO NO". Let's think of the opposite and consider PRAISING positive behavior. Refer to image for this explanation.
Notice in the image the child has a PUSH-PULL toy which is a favorite. Anything that will make them mobile so they can be AUTONOMOUS. These children like playing side by side (PARALLEL PLAY), but forget sharing!
The R is for the eyes because at bed time if certain RITUALS AND ROUTINES are not continued they will not close their eyes and go to sleep. Moral of that story is consistency! RE-GRESSION may occur during hospitalization. PRAISE appropriate behavior and ignore the rest. (Easier said than done!)
The A is for the body because toddlers are into AUTONOMY. They like to help dress and undress self. ACCIDENTS are a leading cause of death. They may have bruises on extremities from climbing and EXPLORING (E for feet). Keep poisons out of reach.
The I is for the arms, so they can be comforted by their parents. Allow parents to stay with child to decrease those S's (tears) from SEPARATION ANXIETY.
ELIMINATION (toilet training) is one of the major mile-stones for the toddler.
Tommy Toxin has crawled into trouble and ingested some substance that is toxic to his body. Mom should have Syrup of Ipecac around the house that will make Tommy throw up the material he has ingested. Once he has vomited, Activated Charcoal will act as an absorbent of the poison. If he has by chance swallowed any caustic or petroleum material (i.e., kerosene, gasoline), Ipecac will be contraindicated!
Calcium EDTA a chelating agent will probably be the most effective if Tommy ate paint or has lead poisoning. Our initial focus for Tommy would be ABC's (airway, breathing, and circulation). "POISON" will assist you with Tommy's plan of care.
PREVENT further absorption. Decreasing absorption may be enhanced by syrup of IPECAC-in some facilities, gastric lavage has replaced Ipecac as the initial treatment. Activated charcoal may be given after gastric lavage or 30-60 minutes after induced emesis. Dialysis may be required if all else fails.
OFF - Shower or wash OFF substance if it is radioactive. If
IIDENTIFY the toxic agent - Do an accurate history and identify any available poison.
SSUPPORT the client both physically and psychologically. Parents may feel guilty in regards to their parenting role. SUPPORT is important!
OONGOING Safety education regarding poison control!
NNOTIFY local poison control center, emergency facility, or physician for immediate care and advice regarding treatment.
Remember-The best solution to poisons is to keep them under lock and key!
