"The Child Whisperer" That should be the new name for Håkan. I started noticing his abilities during Christmas. It all started when Daniel got sick. He was coughing non-stop, so by the third day we called the doctor and he gave him some penicilin and something for the cough. I thought it would be impossible to give him 3 times a day the medicin, but Håkan said decisively, "I’ll do it". Last time, I did it, and it didn’t go very well, he puked everthing. My approach was… let’s do it quick so that he wont even notice. So I shoved the stupid spoon measure down his throat, and I think I must have done it too far, cause he immediately felt like puking….. Håkan was a bit angry, and since that time, he promised he would do it instead. That was 6 months ago.
This time when we saw all the medicin I didn’t even try it. He sat with him on his lap and started telling him about the medicin. I just heard a bit about how well it would make him feel, etc. it took about 20 minutes, and Håkan had to have the medicin first, but IT WORKED! Daniel took it without making a big deal about it. Right after the medicin he got a bit of water and then came the next spoon. It was amazing!!! I couldn’t believe it. Daniel was not all that convinced, but he was taking all the medicin 3 times a day with the same procedure. There was no crying or hesitance. It was very inspiring.
And this is just the beginning, he’s been trying this approach for most other things and its working. For example, when its time to leave the house, or when it’s time to get back in the house. It’s all done very nicely.
