#5 GIVE YOUR CHILD'S EYE PATCH A NICKNAME
At the beginning of your Eye Patch Project there will be a lot of conversations revolving around the word "eye patch". When a child hears the word eye patch they will instantly reach up and touch their eye and pull at it. If your child is young, we suggest that you create a cute little nickname for their eye patch. My daughter called her eye patch a "Kitty Cover". Her eye patch was a Kitten Patch Pal that fit onto her eye glasses. When people talked to her about her Kitten eye patch it was usually to compliment her on how cute it was, so the negative feelings towards her Kitty Cover were never really developed. Of course she still grumbled when we told her to put it on, but it was never because she was embarrassed to wear it.
