1. REMEMBER THE GENES ARE ALL POWERFUL; in habitus, size, and often in drug reactions.

2. ALWAYS BE CONSIDERATE OF THE PARENTS; they are upset out of proportion to the magnitude of the problem.

3. NEVER USE THE WORD HURT; it creates more apprehension and fear.

4. PLEASE HOLD THE CHILD SECURELY; when necessary, it is much more considerate than to have to repeatedly restrain.

5. BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL ABOUT ADVICE FROM FRIENDS, RELATIVES OR NEIGHBORS.

6. NO ONE LIKES A SPOILED CHILD; what may be considered cute in a toddler usually becomes flip and nasty with age.

7. IT IS DANGEROUS TO HAVE CHEWING GUM AND CANDY IN THE MOUTH OF DISTURBED CHILDREN; please don't bring crackers, cookies or soda to the office.

8. PLEASE WATCH INFANTS AT ALL TIMES WHILE ON THE EXAMINING TABLE; no climbing on furniture, it is embarrassing and painful to sustain an injury.

9. KEEP APPOINTMENTS ON TIME; in consideration of others and the doctor.

10. DON'T ABUSE THE TELEPHONE; your doctor is available at all times, however, he appreciates receiving routine calls during office hours.
