What feelings come to mind when you think about taking your child to the doctor? It is a big responsibility, especially in the early years when doctors recommend multiple visits in a short amount of time.

 

Visiting the doctor with your child is very important and can set the foundation for how your child seeks medical care in the future. For older children and toddlers, visiting the doctor may bring up a range of emotions. It is important to be mindful of these emotions before the visit (as well as during and after) so that you can help your child process these big feelings in a healthy way.
