are other adults ready and willing to help.
Up close and personal
Just as you take children to
work, you may want to consider
taking them along for hospital
or doctor visits. One mother
explained that her son’s “job”
was to hold her hand when
she went to see her MS doctor.
Another let her daughter help
reassemble her auto-injector
after she gave herself a shot. This
sort of exposure helps signifi-
cantly in demystifying what’s
happening. The child will have a
picture of where dad is going to
get help, or what mom is doing
when she takes her medication.
