Hi everyone, yet another question for me. How do you handle taking your toddlers for shots/taking blood? My DS gets absolutely hysterical and I have to physically restrain his arms and legs to let the doctor give him shots. It is heartbreaking for both of us and I hate imposing my force and will on him when I avoid that at all costs in all of our other interactions. No amount of singing during or role-playing beforehand helps the situation. He now hates our doctor so much that he gets hysterical even when she tries to listen to his chest with a stethoscope. Any tips on how to handle this situation in a loving way? Thank you.
