Preparing child for mom's surgery

Dana - posted on 08/10/2010 ( 1 mom has responded )




I am having surgery in two weeks. How do I prepare my five-year-old? He will be staying with my sister for a few days until I can move around again. What do I tell him? How do I explain what is happening?

You don't. You just let him know he is going to your sisters for a few days and to have fun. Let him believe it is going to be great sleepover fun for him.
Now if it is serious let him know you will have to have surgery and why. Tell him it isn't that serious but while you are getting better he is going to have great fun with his aunt.
