Parents need to be educated on how to control their child’s asthma

Parents need to be educated in what steps to take to help alleviate their children’s asthmatic symptoms claims researchers. For example, smoking is often a trigger so every effort should be made to eliminate smoking near or around an asthmatic child. Also, buying special mattress covers doesn’t help a child whose asthma is triggered by pollen. Shutting windows and doors would be more effective in this case. Parents need to find out what triggers their child’s asthma and then minimize the presence of these triggers.
