Social support as a protective factor for the well-being of parents of children with autism in Saudi Arabia
Parents of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) experience higher levels of stress and impaired life satisfaction as a result of their children's behavior.

Schools need universal nursing coverage
In August, as the New York City School District prepared to re-open, mayor Bill DeBlasio guaranteed that every public school building would have a school nurse. Universal nursing coverage is undoubtedly needed to ensure a safe return to school amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, but it is also long overdue. A registered nurse should have already been present daily in every school to optimize student wellness, promote safety, and foster a healthy learning environment. Universal nursing coverage in schools is needed to combat an epidemic that will persist long after COVID-19 is a memory. (Source: Journal of Pediatric Nursing)

Intrathecal pain pump for pediatric perverse oncological pain
Uncontrolled cancer pain poses a discouraging and depressing obstacle for teens and their families in a hospice or palliative care environment. The majority of cancer pain is thought to be more neuropathic and often does not respond well to enteral opioids (Bengali, Huang,& Gular, 2014). Chronic pain in children can impact their social and psychological development. Managing intractable pain in pediatric cancer patient despite advances in treatment and understanding biological, psychological, and sociocultural processes is a challenge (Kim, Gamble, Schwartz,& Cucchiaro, 2018).

Human coronaviruses SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV, and SARS-CoV-2 in children
The novel coronavirus, known as 2019-nCoV or severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has caused an epidemic with high mortality and morbidity since December 2019, in Wuhan, China. The infection has now been transmitted to more than 210 countries worldwide and caused more than 200,000 deaths. Similar to other coronaviruses such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV), SARS-CoV-2 appears to less commonly affect pediatrics and to cause less severe disease along with fewer symptoms compared to adults.

Psychometric properties of the Turkish version of the epilepsy-related fears in parents questionnaire
Epilepsy affects both children and their parents, as it is a chronic disease with recurrent seizures. Parents play a key role in acceptance of the diagnosis of epilepsy by the child and compliance of the child with its treatment. Therefore, the perceptions and experiences of parents about this process are critical. The Epilepsy-Related Fears in Parents Questionnaire is one such instrument, and it has been used to measure the epilepsy-related fear experienced by parents who had children with epilepsy in Germany.

Translational research – Promoting quality of life and reducing health disparities among children with chronic conditions and their families
Promoting quality of life among children with chronic conditions and their families is a key focus of pediatric nursing. The linkage between quality of life and health disparities cannot be minimized. Indeed, health disparities intensify the demands of chronic conditions on children and their families with respect to access to care and treatment. As children and families balance the demands of chronic conditions, parenting and caregiving become more complex in managing chronic conditions, while meeting the health and developmental needs of their children (Christian, 2010, 2016).

Telehealth and impact on pediatric obesity
Pediatric obesity is a growing public health concern in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that the obesity rate for children is about 18.5%, which represents 13.7 million children (CDC, 2019). A quick review of the data reminds us that the long-term implications of pediatric obesity are varied and significant. For example, one systematic review and meta-analysis completed by Reilly and Kelly (2010) showed that children who are obese have a long-term increase risk of premature mortality from cardiometabolic causes.
