I hear a *cough* *cough*. I note it, but don't say anything yet because it may be "just a simple cough".
An hour later, I hear *cough* *cough* as he is heading to his next sports activity. This time I say, "You know, I've heard you cough a few times. You need to remember that coughing is a symptom of asthma. You should make sure to pre-treat before exercise today."
13-year-old responds: "It's not an asthma cough. I can tell. I'm getting sick."
So now we're on the "sick plan". Anyone else dealing with the wintertime sicknesses and asthma?
