Most people aren’t thrilled to get a shot or get poked by a needle, but some of our kids are deathly afraid. This fear can cause severe panic when going to the doctor, the dentist or worse the lab or hospital!


In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I invited a co-host who knows this topic inside and out, my nine-year-old daughter. We talk about what type of fears often pop up around shots and needles and what steps can be taken to reduce your child’s anxiety.
