The second element of preparedness is to assemble the things you may need to treat your child should illness or injury strike. It's always stressful when your child needs your help in a hurry. But if you know that what you need is ready and on hand, you can save yourself from frantic searching and scrambling and place your focus where it belongs-on your child. This means faster treatment, as well as a less anxiety filled experience for both parent and child. An environment that is nurturing and reassuring is an invaluable part of health and healing.
