HELPING KIDS EXPRESS THEIR FEELINGS - For toddler or preschool age children, it is important for parents to encourage expression of feeling and listen to what they say. Children this age benefit from regular opportunities to socialize and play with other children in a school home, or child care setting. Praise good behavior, and talk to your child’s doctor or other early childhood professional about appropriate ways to use consistent discipline when it is needed. Every child deserves to be safe and healthy. Another way to stay healthy is to get a Child & Teen Checkup.
CHILD AND TEEN CHECKUPS (C&TC) are preventive health care benefits for children ages birth through 20 who have Minnesota Care or Medical Assistance that provides preventive health visits with the child’s doctor or primary clinic. Help with finding a doctor or dentist, scheduling appointments, finding transportation, or arranging for an interpreter is available by calling St. Louis County Public Health & Human Services: Duluth (218) 725-5210, Virginia (218) 471-0600, Hibbing (218) 262-6000, Ely (218) 365-8220 or 1-800-450-9777.
