If your child wears glasses

If your child has been prescribed glasses, you may have a difficult time getting your child to wear them.

The Children’s Physician Network offers these suggestions:

Health Tips

* Let your child choose the frames, and be sure to give lots of compliments on how great they look.

* Start out having your child wear the glasses for short periods, until they become more comfortable.

* Encourage your child to wear glasses while doing something enjoyable, such as watching a movie or reading a book.

* Don’t nag the child about wearing glasses, but praise them when they do.

* Wearing glasses should be part of the daily routine, much like teeth brushing or getting dressed.

* Mention sports heroes, actors or family members who wear glasses.
