I need help, how can i get my daughter to get over her fear of doctors visits. Today i had to go to the doctors office
to pick up some paper work, my daughter got so scared. As we walked out of the car she ask "this is not Elay school?", i told her "No, abby this is the doctors office" she immediately turned around and wanted to be carried. When we were standing in the elevator the little "pling" sound scared her so much she jumped and grabbed me so hard. I am not looking forward to her 3 y check up, but how can i help her?

maybe ask her what specifically she doesn't like about the dr. our dr. is really nice and draws pictures on their hands or gives them stickers. they think that he's their friend. the didn't like the stethoscope so i just got one for home and we listen to each other's hearts, breathing, play dr. i would find out what the big deal is and then work from there! if she just doesn't like the dr. you might want to switch drs. if it is more of a personality conflict.
