The article presents the author's views on pediatrics and childcare. The author comments on decline in death rate and enhancement in life expectancy in the United States. The author says that health care of children not only goes on in immediate childhood situations, but the increased life expectancy shapes pediatrics towards "longitudinal- section" that includes adult years. The author also reveals that the top age at which pediatricians elect to serve children has progressively risen through the century, with age 21 frequently mentioned as the current cut-off level.
