Overcoming Injection Fears: Teaching Kids to be Brave

Many children have a fear of injections.  Those fears arise from not knowing what to expect and common misconceptions about how much it will hurt or how big the needle will be.  To alleviate fears and to set your child up for a successful injection, it is important to educate your child about the injection process.  Be honest and explain that it will hurt some, but that it will be over quickly.  Teach them to be brave with education and peer modeling.  Seeing other children bravely receiving shots can boost understanding and self confidence!  YouTube has a wealth of videos to choose from.  The following is a good video of a 6 year-old receiving an injection of Humira.
