Health Hints

School children in Texas will be taking a series of standardized tests over the coming weeks, but it's important not to stress over tests. Parents should help their kids keep a positive attitude by reminding them to do their best and not reinforcing any anxiety. They should also make sure their kids get plenty of sleep and eat a healthy breakfast.
