Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood

Knowing what to expect and playing about it can help children better manage their concerns about doctors' visits. When children play being the doctor, they're the ones in charge. That makes it easier to manage when they have to be the patient. In this video from Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, Daniel Tiger is nervous about going to the doctor. He prepares for the new experience by talking it over with his mother. In the related support material, children are encouraged to pretend to be a doctor to their toys so they will feel more comfortable when it is their turn to be the patient.
