My daughter is afraid of needles. ok. Maybe not so much needles as the pain or the unknown.
She has a melt down at the mention of shots or having blood drawn.

I saw a recent episode of The Middle (great show by the way) where Frankie tried to get Brick to cross an old covered bridge. Good Ole' mom Frankie bribes, yells, begs, wines, rationalizes and eventual gives up. This is how I feel about needles and my daughter. I beg, bribe, yell and try to rationalize with her. rationalize with a child who believes in Santa and Disney Princesses. Yeah right.

Will she overcome this fear? Someday. Maybe. After all, I am not a fan of needles either.
