Tips For Parents To Help Kids Deal With Injections

In general, kids with diabetes are most often forced to face blood tests and insulin shots, but this can be the challenge for their parents as well. Of course, the diabetes health care team of your child will help you both learn and manage the health problem and in minimizing the pain and anxiety that surrounds blood tests and injections. Even, the health care team will educate you about the testing technologies and medicines available to provide the least discomfort and most convenience. You can sit with the team to find the comfortable solution for your kid and for yourself.

Dealing with feelings:

When children are very young, making them prepared for blood tests and shots can be the real challenge. Parents will have to enforce an effective diabetes management system that can bring together regular testing and giving shots to a child, who gets angry, resists and cries out of pain and fear for shots. When your child gets upset about blood tests and shots, make him understand that this frustration is normal and it is fine to get upset. This will help you in describing the need for getting shots and blood tests at regular intervals and you can also explain the kid that these are done to keep him/her active and to make him/her feel good all through the day. Also, explain him/her that not getting them will lead them to stay in home because of illness, rather than spending time with peers at school and at playtime.

Treating as daily routine:

Create an impression in the mind of your child that getting shots is a part of the daily routine like other daily activities. Many children like to have a sense of ownership, rather than turning out to be victims of shots and blood tests.

Create an impression in the mind of your child that getting shots is a part of the daily routine like other daily activities. Many children like to have a sense of ownership, rather than turning out to be victims of shots and blood tests. Slowly get your child engaged in the process of preparing the needle for himself/herself. For instance, you can teach him to read the glucose meter and can make him fill up the syringe and also you can give him the choice to choose the spot for the shot and can also make him press the plunger on the syringe. Eventually, kids will learn to handle the blood test and shots on their own, of course, your supervision should be there.

Do not skip:

If your child cries or argues not to get the shot, you might be tempted to skip it for once. But, remember that you should never negotiate shots or blood tests as they are necessary and not optional. Sometimes, you will have to do it even when your child cries or stays uncooperative. After giving the shot, you can talk to him and can bring him to playful mode. But, if your child is continuously fearful and non-cooperative, it is better to take the help of a mental health professional to talk to your child to get him out of the fear for shots.

Finally, keep the things ready to inject and this can be done out of your child’s site to make the process quicker and you can reward the child for being cooperative.
