    Default What Makes Your Child's Ouchies Better?

    With toddlerhood, my kids became walking bumps, bruises, scrapes and scratches. Most of time a little magic in the form of a hug or kiss made them all better. For a couple of kids, a bandage was essential for even the tiniest of cuts. It let the world know that they were hurting and could you please throw a little sympathy their way? My oldest thought band-aids were evil. At age three, she accepted the injury calmly, but offering a band-aid sent the kid into a screaming fit. Honestly... So...

    What helps your child feel better?

    My kids like bandaids, until they are stuck to them. I guess the idea is fun, but the reality, not so much. lol. Kisses on the booboo works like a charm.

    Used to be bandaids, now an ice pack will do the trick every time!

    Hugs and kisses are the only thing right now because she won't let me touch real "owies." If she has a scab, she usually tells me about it then instructs me not to look at it.

    Well I have 5 kids and 5 different personalities so this one was hard for me. I think in general for a quick scrape or bump the hug and kiss method works great. But when my DD was a toddler only a band aid would do. She wouldn't wear it on her boo boo though - she'd wear it on her shirt!!!

    My son HATES band aid, he won't wear one even if he needs it. I think it reminds him of his 4 day stay at the hospital.
    So me picking him up and giving him a hug is what works.
