Perhaps the greatest gift you can give your child, not to mention yourself, is a feeling of control over this condition. Like Superman or Wonder Woman, your child can be the boss of eczema with a good plan. Sit down with your little itchy scratcher and together make a plan for how your Super Team will vanquish the worst parts of eczema. I'm providing a sample, but if your child feels that every doctor's visit should be followed by a trip to the ice cream store, make sure you write that down, too!
Vicki Iovine began her writing career after the birth of her fourth child in six years with the publication of The Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy. This book struck a chord among women who found maternity an altered state, and Vicki soon became a regular contributor on such shows as "The Today Show," "Oprah," and "The View." She has since published The Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy Daily Diary; The Girlfriends' Guide to Surviving the First Year of Motherhood; The Girlfriends' Guide to Toddlers; and The Girlfriends' Guide to Getting Your Groove Back. Vicki has also been an advice columnist for Child magazine for five years. And with nearly 20 years of marriage under her belt, she regularly contributes articles to Redbook as the "Marriage Advisor" on the mysteries of the man/woman thing. Most recently, Vicki has sold a feature film screenplay to Twentieth Century Fox.
