As a parent, when you have little ones you always have some sort of worry when they get sick or hurt, especially when a ‘first time’ happens. A lot of us run to the computer and Google or run to the phone and call some one we know, or the doctor on call. Most of the time it’s nothing, and we freak ourselves out, especially when it’s late at night and we have no one to turn to, Google can be your friend and enemy at the same time when trying to look up symptoms.
The Big Book of Symptoms is available to help parents in those times of need, you can quickly grab the book out of your bookshelf and instead of seeing the worst of the worst from Google, you get a clear image of symptoms and what might be going on, as well as what action you can take.
