A note for Pediatricians: The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), in the October issue of Pediatrics, issued guidelines on preventing child maltreatment by strengthening families and enhancing child development. The Guidelines suggest that “pediatricians are well poised to play a vital role in preventing child maltreatment.” Guideline 3 says, “Clinicians should ask parents about their perception of their infant’s crying, how they are coping with it, and which strategies they use to cope. The pediatrician should help explain the infant’s behavior to parents and counsel them regarding alternative responses.”
