Abstract: Pediatrics stands at the threshold of phenomenal growth and discovery. It is well known that most adult non-communicable diseases have their origins in childhood and even infancy. This is also true for pain and stress responses. Using a lifespan perspective, we will explore the long-term impact of exposures to pain, stress and adversity during early childhood, bringing science to William Wordsworth’s line in 1888, “The Child is father of the Man”. By treating the child we can cure the adult.
