#11 EYE PATCHES ARE COOL

When presenting the idea of wearing an eye patch to your child, try hard to put a positive spin on the situation.  When my daughter first wore her eye patch (it was a handmade eye patch that looked like a duck) she had lots of other little 3 year olds asking their moms at preschool if they could wear an eye patch.  Fortunately the moms played along with me when we let the toddlers know that not everyone gets to wear an eye patch, only a few special kids.  This statement of course made my daughter feel special and important.  Knowing that the other kids were envious made it a little easier to tolerate.  She loved choosing which eye patch to wear to match her mood or a special outfit.  Remember your positive or negative attitude influences your child.  Do your best to show some enthusiasm.
