Child Slings Make Acceptance and Recovery Easier on a Child (and Parents!)


On top of all of that misery you can't get the cast wet so that causes the child to give up their standard bath time and some other enjoyed activities like swimming with their friends.Arm slings are somewhat restrictive and sometimes physical activities are limited by doctor's orders. Some kids get depressed when they can't button their own pants, write with their hand of choice, or get left out of activities such as sports or PE. It is hard for kids to deal with such limitations for a day, much less six weeks. I can almost guaranty that they will want to ditch the arm sling before the healing is complete and you can expect rivalry between parents and child as the parent tries to enforce doctor's orders.Let's face it, arm slings are boring on top of being down right ugly. I am well past my prime and I personally had a problem wearing that hideous sling around my neck day after day. I knew that it was important to healing properly but none the less, it was putting a kink in my desire to look fashionable. I can only imagine how that might feel like with kids with all of the peer pressure that exists these days.After the severe pain goes away and the bone is set, kids are usually excited about going back to school. At first, having a broken bone is "cool", but it doesn't take long for that feeling to wear off and the cast and the arm sling become a total nuisance.It can be tragic to a parent that is supposed to make everything better for their child, but when a broken bone is involved, there is really not much that you can do to raise the spirits of the child. I know from experience that presenting a fashionable arm sling will make things somewhat better. It will make the child have more confidence about going out in public and hanging out with friends at school. It will attract positive comments and make the healing process so much simpler.Getting a tot sling or child slings made out of appealing material decorated with hearts, frogs or sea animals will definitely bring the smile back onto the child's face. It will make them feel distinguished again because the other kids don't have something so neat. It can be really uplifting during the recovery from a broken arm.Linda F.
