Don’t Freak Over a Fever

p_101681513As a parent myself I understand the shock we get when our children cry out and they are sweating puddles from the fever they just started. You immediately freak. You start to wonder what happen, how did it happen, why did it happen, what do I do now, should I call the doctor…etc. The questions keep on going. I get it. But truthfully the worst thing you can do is freak out in front of your child. It can be very traumatizing actually. Be aware of yourself and how you carry yourself because your children are watching your every move and will be looking to you when they get scared. If you are just as scared as them they will feel hopeless. Be their anchor and keep them grounded. Assure them always that they are okay. Even if you are questioning it yourself. Keeping them calm and telling them that they are okay and well, will actually make them feel better, so keep doing it! (more…)
