Explaining Allergies To Children
While the best approach to manage your child’s risk to development of allergies is to control the environment and appropriately treat the signs and symptoms. but explaining a child about this may be difficult, but essential.
Talk The Way They Listen
Use language appropriate for your child’s age to describe when their allergy flares up. try to avoid medical terminology and details that will confuse a young child.
Stick To Basics At First
Make your child aware of what triggers symptoms and giving very basic understanding of what happens to cause the symptoms. you can even visit sites for story books, games and puzzles that explain in terms your child can understand.
Talk To Teachers, Coaches And Parents of Friends
This will help everyone around your child recognise their symptoms and know how to respond. give caregivers a copy of your child’s management plan to reference in case of an emergency.
