No one wants to experience their child being injured, but if that situation should ever occur, knowing how to react could make a big difference in the final outcome. If you make a plan in advance, you will be able to react correctly to ensure the well-being of your child, even when your emotions are trying to lead you in the wrong direction. Here are the most important things to remember if your child is injured.
Your child depends on you for guidance and strength and that is no different when they are injured. In fact, it is more true, since your child will likely be frightened themselves. In many situations, a child becoming more panicked can actually make the situation worse by increasing their heart rate and blood pressure. If they see you panicking, though, they will panic as well. That’s why it’s so important to not only stay calm throughout the situation but to stay strong, as well. Your child needs to see you taking initiative to provide for their care to truly know that “everything will be alright.” By doing this on their behalf, you help calm them down, thus aiding in their treatment.
