The visit is pretty much the same every year. First, the nurse asks the child to get undressed to ensure that parents can't grab their child and bolt from the room in pure embarrassment.
Once the clothes are off, they begin asking questions. This is the part that parents dread the most. You see, the questions are always addressed to the child. The doctor speaks directly to the child, and in no way shows desire to involve the parent in the discussion. This is bad, because the parent can only sit back helplessly and pray that the child answers correctly. God forbid they don't, because a raised eyebrow from the doctor ensues and the non-verbal shaming begins.
|Based on my daughter's answers, the doctors|
probably think this is my idea of parenting.
