TIPS FOR PARENTS

How to prepare children for testing.
Your help is extremely important.

Explain them what to expect, always according to the child’s age.
This talk should happen within 24 hours prior to testing.
Tell them who is requesting the tests, and why it is important to have them.

Tell them that it is mild puncture and that it won’t take long.
Explain the importance of their collaboration for a quick and safe procedure, and to reduce any discomforts.

  • Discussing the subject if your child shows no interest.
  • Deceiving the child to get their collaboration.
  • Telling your negative personal experiences –either through gestures, silence or by taking their feelings for granted.
