Article about how children perceive pain

This is a brilliant article about how children perceive pain, and how to reduce their anxiety around a specific task. It is from a doctor who needs to address anxiety on a daily basis. From the article, it sounds like he has a great hold of the issue.

I won't paraphrase the article because the real article is much more valuable than isolated soundbites. It is a great read for parents: many difficult spots in parenting revolve around reducing anxiety and establishing rapport.

I am glad I am not a doctor in such a difficult role. I am also a little jealous about how much Dr. Baruch Krauss has gained from his experience. Luckily he can share his wisdom.
