What to expect
When your child is having any kind of procedure or surgery that requires anesthesia, it's understandable to be a little uneasy. You probably have plenty of questions about everything — from how the anesthesia is given, to what your child will experience, to where you're allowed to be.
Listening and praise
No matter how old your children are, your praise and encouragement will help them feel good about themselves. This boosts their self-esteem and confidence. Sometimes rewards can be useful too, especially if you want to encourage good behaviour.
Allow their independence
Children learn and grow best by doing. Let them try and explore things that interest them, as long as you are there to keep things safe and secure.
