Circumcision is an elective surgery that your child can undergo. Unlike other emergency surgeries being done on patients, elective surgery is something that don’t need to be done as soon as possible instead, you’re scheduled for it and thus, you need to wait. This is going to give you adequate time to prepare your kid for their surgery but for them, it will only make them feel anxious about it.

Well the good thing is that, there are few steps that you may do for your child to feel less anxious and more comfortable of the procedure. The key in helping your child prepare for their circumcision is by providing them info regarding the treatment.

Following are tips to do it.

Tip number 1. Explain what the procedure is for and to how it is performed – the main reason why children are scared of this medical procedure is that, they don’t any idea on what’s going to happen. The best way you can do to help your child feel better is to talk them the procedure, explain what is going to happen and let them question you.

Odds are, they’ll be more worried about the pain they will feel and thus, it is crucial to reassure them that they will not feel any since they’ll be asleep or numbed during the circumcision.

Tip number 2. Tell them that you’ll be beside them the whole time – kids are scared to be alone, what more if they’re left in unfamiliar places having to undergo a procedure. This is the main reason why it is extremely important to assure them that you will not leave their side when the circumcision is done.

After all, a lot of hospitals these days are very accommodative to parents which let them stay with their kids all the time so this isn’t going to be a problem.

Tip number 3. Give your kid something to look forward – be sure that you give your child something that they’ll look forward to after the surgery to at least give them motivation to undergo circumcision and at the same time, make it look more appealing. This is just anything similar to family vacation, a trip to local theme park, a toy they want for long or anything that you know will motivate them. Always remember that the treat is not what important here, it is that they are looking forward for the procedure because of that motivation you’ve given them.

It is worth a shot to follow these tips in trying to calm your child for the procedure.
