Show Notes

In our lives we will at some point have to receive vaccines, a medical procedure, or do something that is out of our comfort zone. For some children, getting a vaccine or medical procedure can be tough. I invited Katie Taylor who is a certified child life specialist, CEO of Child Life on Call, And the host of The Child Life on Call Podcast to discuss how we can approach vaccines and medical procedures with our child.

We discuss:

  • How to prepare our children for vaccines and other medical procedures
  • What NOT to say 
  • Focusing on development to aid in approach
