how-to-make-hospitals-less-scary-for-kidsBringing your child to the hospital can be a stressful time for you and your family. Depending on their age, children may experience difficulties while being hospitalized due to separation from family, change in routine, unfamiliar faces, misunderstandings about their treatment, fear of upcoming procedures and an overall loss of control.

Leslie Dempsey, Senior Certified Child Life Specialist, discusses how to make hospitals less scary for kids and how to prepare your children for hospitalization so they know what to expect. Eliminating the fear of the unknown is crucial in helping kids cope with their medical experiences.
