Mommy’s Magic Tricks: 7 Steps to Curing Boo boos

Step 1 – Offer lots of hugs and kisses. Acknowledging the pain is very helpful too.

Step 2 –  Scoop the pain with one hand. Squeeze your hand so the pain has no space to escape. WARNING: do not open your fist until you get the go signal.

Step 3 – Gently blow your hand

Step 4 – Now, ask the toddler to blow your hand.

Step 5 – Shake  your fist over your left shoulder. Then over your right shoulder. Don’t forget to say ” Shake shake shake” enthusiastically and with a smile.

Step 6 – For the last part, ask the toddler where should you throw the pain. Give him time if he needs several seconds to make a decision. You can offer suggestions but ultimately, it is the tot who will decide where should the pain be dumped. You might be asked to go to the bathroom or simply throw the pain into the air.

Step 7 – Do what he says and voila! No more pain!
