Episode 122 of 184 episodes

You never want your child to experience pain but we also need to realize it's part of life.. from the ordinary tumbles and scrapes of childhood, scheduled immunisations, trips to the dentist, to the more terrifying accidents and emergencies one way or another our children will need to learn to deal with pain. How children cope with pain has a lot to do with our role as parents and there is a huge contribution we can make to helping alleviate not just the physical experience but the anxiety and stress that can certainly increase pain for children.
