When our children have a fever it can be a very scary and nervous time, especially if you are a new parent. To make matters worse, if parents panic, it can increase the possibility that the child will get anxious as they observe the behavior of a frantic parent.
There are many sources online that provide readers with all the information they will ever need to become an expert on fevers. One of the more useful websites with straight forward information covering everything you need to know about fevers is www.babycenter.com. They cover everything from fever detection, fever management, and understanding the causes.
