If a child does know he is to go into hospital, the modern attitude has changed for the better in most hospitals. The young patient should be visited as much as it is allowed.

Mothers and fathers can often be a help in the nursing too. A child dumped in a vast ward, who does not know what is going to happen to him, may suffer for years from the effects. If a child is ill at home, try to do the nursing downstairs. It may be a bit difficult, but it can make life much happier for the invalid and it may even make nursing easier.

Do not imagine that because a poorly child is off his food, he will starve to death. Do not go on at him about eating. Taking plenty of fluids is easier and more important. Make sure the youngster gets enough fresh air, and do not try to get a 'greenhouse', temperature in the room.

Finally, avoid odd jobs when you have got a sick child in the house to nurse. Give him or her plenty of your company - some quality time if you like. The patient will be better for it.
