A series, by Ellen Abbott, on the issue of concussions in CNY.

This week: winter head injuries, and positive parenting

Protecting yourself from head injury during the winter goes beyond wearing a helmet while skiing and skating, according to concussion expert Brian Rieger, PhD.

"Behavior is as important as safety equipment," Rieger says.

More about traumatic brain injury prevention and why helmets may not protect against concussion.

Also this week: the principles of discipline and new research on parenting. Plus, a place for hospitalized children to keep up with schoolwork, within Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital.
