What is the best way to help a child with a severe needle phovia?


Rather than hold him down kicking and screaming, risking someone else getting hurt or stuck with the need let? There should be something that can calm the anxiety enough to take a shot in the arm.

    That kind of makes sense. He kept pleading "not today" and didn't because he hid under the table and wouldn't cooperate with the doctor, who said we can reschedule for another day and hold him down if we bring people to so it with us.

    That would maybe work, but he is 12 so not sure if he will take the bait. He's really terrified for some reason. Thanks for the suggestion. I am not counting that idea out.
