Every parent has been there. Your child has a cold or a fever or a tummy ache and turns into the devil child. They are not happy with the toys they usually like. They do not enjoy their usual food. They fuss. They cry. Normal activities become impossible. We all understand how it feels to be sick, but it must be that much worse when you cannot communicate exactly what is bothering you.
These days become the equivalent of walking through a minefield. We all want to do whatever is necessary to get our children better and back to being happy go lucky. They do not make it easy. There is no secret other than hope and pray.
