Performance of the procedure

      • Performance of the procedure
        • Expect success
          • Approach children with confidence and convey the impression that you expect to be successful
        • Involve the child
          • Permitting choices gives them some measure of control.
            • But don’t state “Do you want to take your medicine now?” leads them to believe they have an option and provides them the opportunity to legitimately refuse or delay the medication.
            • Instead be firm, “It’s time to drink your medicine now.” 
              • Children usually like to make choices, but the choice must be one that they do indeed have (e.g., “It’s time for your medicine. Do you want to drink it plain or with a little water?”).
        • Provide distraction
        • Allow expression of feelings
