It’s the saddest thing when kiddos are sick, but if they can express themselves when they are it makes it 10 times easier for us! Here are some go-to phrases to teach and model for your child.
“I don’t feel good” or “I feel sick”
“Tummy hurt” or any “Body part + hurt”
Comments such as “Yucky” or “Gross”
“I need sleep” or anything else they may need such as an ice pack or even a hug
“I want daddy”
Many will also ask “wh” questions like “why” and it’s a prefect opportunity to explain to them what is going on in their body! Hope the germs stay away and you all stay healthy! Summer is right around the corner ☺
