The last thing you want to do is wait until you hear your child start wheezing because at that time your child is in a full blown asthma attack and that could be deadly. Once you notice your child is tight and is having a hard time breathing you must act ASAP and get some medications on board. Children are the worst when it comes to pulmonary problems especially asthma. They can go from being OK to being in serious condition in minutes and don't wait for the wheezing to start because that may be the last thing you hear..
