On September 17, President Donald J. Trump’s oldest daughter took to Twitter to share an update regarding one of the president’s grandchildren.

In her tweet, mom of three Ivanka Trump revealed that her oldest daughter, Arabella, took a tumble and hit her head hard.

Ivanka wrote:

Yesterday Arabella slipped playing Gaga and hit her head hard (thankfully, she is fine).

Gaga ball is a variation of the game of dodgeball and is played in an octagon. According to North Jersey.com, “the game is thought to have started in Israel — gaga means “touch touch” in Hebrew — and was played in Jewish summer camps beginning in the 1970s.”

After revealing that Arabella hit her head during a game of Gaga, she also shared a link to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As Ivanka explained, the link “is an excellent resource for concussions- or TBI – that is worth reading and passing along.”

The link explained what a concussion is and how to spot the signs that a child may have a concussion. Observed signs or symptoms can be:

  • Appears dazed or stunned
  • Forgets an instruction, is confused about an assignment or position, or is unsure of the game, score, or opponent
  • Moves clumsily
  • Answers questions slowly
  • Loses consciousness (even briefly)
  • Shows mood, behavior, or personality changes
  • Can’t recall events prior to or after a hit or fall

Other symptoms that a child can feel are:

  • Headache or “pressure” in head
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Balance problems or dizziness, or double or blurry vision
  • Bothered by light or noise
  • Feeling sluggish, hazy, foggy, or groggy
  • Confusion, or concentration or memory problems
  • Just not “feeling right” or “feeling down”

The CDC also states that it is essential for parents to talk with children about concussions and the importance of reporting their symptoms after a head injury to them right away.
