Pediatrics for Parents emphasizes an informed, commonsense approach to childhood health care. We stress preventative action, accident prevention, when to call the doctor. We seek articles that describe general, medical and pediatric problems, advances, new treatments, etc. All articles must be medically accurate, contain resource citations when applicable, and be useful to parents of children from prenatal to early teens. Pediatrics for Parents is not a general parenting magazine and will not consider such material.

Professional Submissions by Medical and Dental Authorities
We will consider articles previously published in professional journals if rewritten for our lay audience. All articles must be in an active voice and avoid medical jargon while adhering to our strict standards of factual accuracy. Explanatory articles on body functions, disease processes and treatment approaches would be on target. We are also looking for articles on wellness, prevention, and modes of interaction between children, parents and medical and dental professionals.

Submissions by Non-Medical and Dental Authorities
We are interested in original, well researched, factual, and informative articles on topics described above. Articles must be authoritative and specific with reference citations accompanying each article. We are not particularly interested in “personal account” or “human interest” stories unless they medically-based and contain a large amount of useful information for our readers.
