CIMA Medical Center in Miami Springs shares some of their best tips on how to avoid panic when your little one breaks a bone for the first time.Β  It may sound unsettling for some since we would never want to imagine our child in a very unfortunate and painful situation but it’s always better to be prepared and to have these tips in mind when the situation arises.

 

CALM YOUR OWN PANIC
The most important thing you can do when your child breaks a bone is to remain calm.
Your child will look to you for how to react.
Take control of the situation by getting control over your anxiety and fears.

BE PREPARED
Probably the best way to keep your cool is to fight fear with knowledge. Gathering information ahead of time will come in handy when it eventually happens.

EASE THEIR PAIN AND ANXIETY
Helping your child feel better will help you overcome your anxiety as well. No matter your child’s age, never underestimate the power of a good hug. Physical contact calms the parasympathetic nervous system and releases the feel-good hormone oxytocin. You’ll both feel much better afterward and can move on to some deep breathing.
