Methods of calming the child

🧑 ⚕️ Visiting the doctor is an important part of a child's life, but for some kids it can be a scary or stressful time. Because of this, today we decided to share tips on how to make this process easier for children and parents.

👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 First of all, a trip to the doctor should not be a surprise for the child. We are all afraid of the unknown, so it is not surprising that a child can suddenly become frightened in an unfamiliar place. Therefore, it is important to simply and sincerely answer all the child's questions before visiting the clinic.

🤗 Secondly, support the child during the trip to the doctor. If for some reason the child becomes restless during the reception, it will help him to feel that he is not alone. Hugs, kisses and words of support can do wonders to calm a child. In addition, there are a number of calming exercises that you can learn with your child.

🍦 Third, reward. After a successful visit to the doctor, reward your child with something nice, such as ice cream or a new toy.
