If Your Child Has Been Injured, She May Need More Than a Doctor's Visit

Most parents know what to do when their child is injured. Just a trip to the family doctor to get their little one patched up and lots of TLC, and their kid will soon be good as new. After all, they bounce back quickly, right?

Maybe not. For many kids the stress from an injury doesn't end once they leave the doctor's office. Post traumatic stress is common in children who've been in an accident. And it's often difficult for parents to know how to deal with, or even identify, a child who is struggling to cope with their feelings.

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia has a Web site devoted to teaching parents how to help their children recover. After the Injury is a great resource for learning about the effects of an injury or trauma on children. It offers expert advice, tips and a quiz that helps measure their stress level.

It's a great tool for helping a child heal, even after the bandages are taken off.
