BATTLING BALDNESS

Some men look in the mirror and regard a receding hairline with distress, wondering if there is a cure for baldness. Currently, the only truly effective medically proven way to arrest hair loss is to lower dihydrotestosterone (DHT) levels. DHT is a form of testosterone that regulates beard growth and hair loss.

A love of learning and reading will serve your child a lifetime. Reading is one of the essential school components that helps your child reach his or her full potential. Reading encompasses the essences of writing, vocabulary, learning and understanding. That is why it is so important for your child to enjoy reading. Libraries are a great way for children to discover reading.


Most towns and communities have a local library. Many times the library is known as a main resource center. Children will enjoy getting familiar with the library and the services it has to offer. It’s great to get started as soon as possible. Library membership can start at a very young age as well. Here are a few steps to help you and your child have an enjoyable summer full of reading and learning:


•  Read to Your Child Regularly. Introduce your child to the world of reading at a young age. Try to make reading part of your daily routine. Bedtime stories are always a great start for younger children, and incorporating books during the day as your child learns to read on her own is important as well. Find out your child’s interests and get a variety of books about them.


•  Visit Your Local Library. Take a visit to the local library. Talk to the children’s librarian about the programs that are offered there during the summer. Get the library’s summer calendar so you can stay up to date on all the upcoming events.

•  Get Your Child His Own Library Card. When your child is at the appropriate age, sign him up for his own library card. Having a library card teaches your children responsibility. They’ll have to keep up with the due dates and be responsible for their books.


•  Let Your Child Select Her Own Books. It is important to give your child the independence to select her own books. She will pick something that fits her own interests or perhaps something she may be curious about. If a book she selects is not in her usual reading category, let her check it out anyway as long as it is age appropriate. This is part of the learning process.


Make the library visit a regular outing for your children. It will enrich their learning and make certain areas of schoolwork more enjoyable since they have already been introduced to reading. Reading is an inexpensive activity that has endless rewards. As Dr. Seuss said, “The more you read, the more things you know. The more you learn, the more places you go.”
