Health + Safety

From diet to exercise, the health + safety of our families is a top priority. Use the health + safety category to find articles and resources written by other mamas and local professionals to help you feel your best.

Collin County Moms publishes original, personal stories and advice from local moms, as well as relevant and fun information for those of us in the trenches of parenthood.

Every article published via Collin County Moms — whether someone from our in-house team, a guest writer, or a sponsored writer — uses their words to reflect their own opinions, experiences, and beliefs. No singular article or collection of articles represents the opinions, beliefs, or agenda of Collin County Moms.

This season, if you've got a sick kiddo on the weekend or a holiday, here's what you need to know:
Kids develop differently both mentally and physically, but research and attentive parenting can help us make informed decisions that can lead to successful sports experiences.
There are many factors that go into choosing between school, recreation, or club teams, including price, availability of your family, location, friends, the athletic level of your child, and other variables.
Collin County Moms has compiled a guide for extracurricular activities for kids in Collin County, offering a range of options from sports and music to arts and academics.
There are more rules we parents need to know -- ones we didn't necessarily grow up with.
People with ADHD have so many wonderful qualities. Trying to suppress, or mask, them can be exhausting.
It is to be expected that it will take time to grieve those we have lost and process all that has transpired. Do not be ashamed for feeling deeply.
Recreation centers are especially great for families, as they host a variety of age-appropriate activities year-round.
