Up to 35 million kids between the ages of 5-18 are playing organized sports and the trend continues towards kids beginning at even earlier ages.
More than 3.5 million children under age 14 receive medical treatment for sports injuries annually and according to the Centre of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) more than half of all sports injuries are preventable.
Kids are not always receiving proper training or coaching. Only one of every five coaches, with teams under age 14, say they have been trained in motivational techniques. Just one of every three are trained in skills related to the primary sport they coach.
The National Youth Sports Health & Safety Institute is becoming the recognized leadership and advocacy group with the latest research and evidence-based education, recommendations and policies to enhance the experience, development, health and safety for youth in sports.

President Barack Obama pressured Congress on Wednesday to move quickly to address the massive influx of children at the border, and he aimed to deflect mounting criticism over his administration’s attention to the issue.
He hailed the efforts of Dallas County officials and religious groups to help care for up to 2,000 children.
And he called pointedly on Texas Republicans to help Congress move quickly on the White House’s request for an emergency $3.7 billion.
“The problem here is not a major disagreement around the actions that could be helpful in dealing with the problem,” “The only question at this point is why wouldn’t the Texas delegation or any of the other Republicans who are concerned about this not want to put this on a fast track?”
Obama’s call for action came as children continue to flood into Texas from Central America. More than 50,000 unaccompanied immigrants or families have been caught entering the U.S. illegally from Mexico in the last nine months, most from Honduras, Guatemala or El Salvador. The White House has said most will ultimately be deported.Dallas Morning News

In this "Brains in Toyland" segment of Kids A to Z, I have a brief review a study regarding how dancing relates to developing interpersonal relationships.
This is a great example of how the different areas of development influence one another.
Here we see dancing, a physical activity, and it's impact on social-emotional, intellectual development, and one might argue, even moral development.
I discovered the article through a blog a subscribe to called NeuroNet Learning. They regularly send summaries of scientific articles about child development. Their summaries are family friendly and I really like the topics they cover.
Most importantly, the articles the NeuroNet Blog shares are from peer reviewed journals. That means experts on the subject, unrelated to the study at hand, determine its worthiness for publication.
The link to their blog with the original summary is below if you are interested.
Thanks for tuning in.
Best, Dr. Teresa
Ah, the Good Old Summertime! Many of us, especially in the north, look forward to this short, delightful season all year long because it is such a fun time. And yet it can be dangerous too. We want to protect ourselves from sun overexposure, without using unhealthy chemical sun blocks. We want to protect ourselves from bugs, without using bug sprays that are almost as poisonous to us as they are to the bugs! We want to go on picnics and beach parties and make sure our food is safe to eat, and we don’t load up with sugar. Hikers, joggers and bicyclists want to avoid ticks that cause Lyme disease. We want to enjoy all the festivities while avoiding heat exhaustion or dehydration. And we need to make sure our children and pets are comfortable and safe, especially around water, and when we are traveling.
Join our Health Guru, Beverly Nadler, today as she discusses the many safe and sane ways to really enjoy the good old summertime.

Last year, legions of fans, friends and peers were saddened to learn of the death of writer Tom Clancy. Arguably one of the finest writers and storytellers of his generation, Clancy was justifiably credited with the creation of the "Techno-Thriller" genre of writing, and its creation of an entire segment of the publishing industry. So it is this week, with more than a little anticipation, that fans of his work are about to be rewarded with the first book of a treasured Tom Clancy spinoff series, Op Center. Published by St. Martin's Press (@StMartinsPress), Out Of The Ashes, is the first new book of the series in over a decade, and features many of the qualities that Clancy fans have come to hope for and desire. A new Op Center, with a new location, new characters, and a new focus on how to deal with the evolving challenges of terrorism and international threats in the 21st century. Already a bestseller over this past weekend, this is a book that is going to make an impression.
To learn more about this exciting new book, the Op Center series and the people behind it, join military historian, Tom Clancy co-author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is St. Martin's Press author George Galdorisi (@GeorgeGaldorisi), who along with legendary special operations writer Dick Couch (@DickCouch), created Out of the Ashes. Together they will explain to listeners the details of restarting this popular book franchise, and give some insight into details of the plot line. For Tom Clancy and techno-thriller fans, this a rare chance to learn about the "inside" details of one of the bestselling books today. So please feel free to call in with questions and comments, and enjoy!
