‘Shooting’ a gun-shaped device in foreheads

3 children told me how horrible it feels to be ‘shot’ in the head every morning with the gun-shaped thermometer! They had nightmares of bring shot with bullets in a school shooting! There is evidence that taking temperatures from wrists is even more accurate than foreheads.

Aiming the temp gun at the forehead will disrupt the pineal gland over time, which will decrease melatonin and alter sleep patterns. No bueno. The wrist and inner fold of the arm are more accurate temps.
