This relates to this earlier question.
I'm looking for advice on teaching my children how to stay calm while they are having an allergic reaction, so they can properly react and remember their training on how to handle it.
My first idea is relaxation training before the time of symptoms. The goal is to avoid the stress and damaging the itching areas and worsening other symptoms. Relaxing methods contain discussion about symptoms, encouraging to describe feelings, self-care, self-love, meditation and trying to find out the reason for the symptoms. An idea is to connect the relaxation to something practical such as playing music and Tai Chi so the children has focus on other things, not on itching and other symptoms.
There are surely other methods to teach children to stay calm during allergic reactions of which they can be totally unaware of, just extremely irritated or over-active. Somehow as a parent, I find it important to make opportunities for the children to acknowledge the culprits themselves.
How do I teach my children to stay calm when they have an allergic reaction?
