Parents can help make the visit less scary with good preparation
How and when you talk with your child about an operation or hospital visit depends on their age and level of understanding.
As a parent, you know best how much information your child needs and can handle. However, generally, every child older than infancy needs to be told:
- That they are going to the hospital
- That they will be having an operation
- About what will happen (basic information) during their hospital visit
Please call the Child Life office in Temple for additional questions or concerns.
