You may already know that undergoing regular physicals is important for your child’s health. However, many parents wonder when kids should begin having solo physical exams. Watch this video for some helpful advice on this subject.
Typically, children begin seeing their doctor for private physical exams between the ages of 11 and 13. If your child has reached this stage, then you can provide her with space she needs to ask questions and develop a relationship with her doctor by sitting in at the beginning of the appointment and then stepping outside for the remainder.
