Some More Tips For Examining The Young Child

Let the child see and touch the tools you will be using during the examination.

Use a reassuring voice throughout the examination.

Avoid asking permission to examine a body part because you will do the examination anyway. Instead, ask the child which ear or which part of the body he or she would like you to examine "first."

Examine an apprehensive child in the parent's lap, and let the parent undress the child.

If unable to console the child, complete the examination expediently or give the child a short break.

Make a game out of the examination! For example, "Let's see how big your tongue is!" or "Is Barney in your ear? Let's see!"
