With the holidays fast approaching, many families will choose to vaccinate their children for the flu or Covid. Certified Instructor Amy Speidel joins us for a special Real Talk to help adults create a positive experience for children undergoing medical procedures like vaccines this season. The way we approach children’s medical procedures establishes a mental and emotional blueprint children will utilize for the rest of their lives. In order to help create healthy blueprints, we must replace “get a treat if you’re good” and “surprise” approaches with emotionally-sound strategies that promote safety and connection. Discover the importance of managing your own feelings surrounding medical procedures, and then learn how to 1. Prepare (plan and practice), 2. Put your plan into action, 3. Soothe in the moment and 4. Manage loopholes utilizing reliable strategies from Conscious Discipline. Essential Takeaways • Medical procedures can be scary for children and adults alike. • Calm yourself first and redefine a “successful” experience as the best possible outcome considering the circumstances. • Prepare with planning and practice, put your plan into action, soothe in the moment and manage any loopholes assertively.
