Re: How do you prepare your older child for vaccines?
My kiddo doesn't have aspergers or any other issues but telling him the a couple days before hand let him mull it over. By the time we were getting ready to leave for the doctors app't. he informed me he was going to be brave and not fight or cry.
As for it not hurting. I wouldn't tell him that because it may hurt. We only vaccinate because it is required for public school. I had to receive one because my job required it. It hurt like crazy. So telling him it doesn't hurt may backfire in future if it hurts him.
