i know what you mean. When I have taken my boys to the dr, for sports physicals and such (they are teens), I go in the dr with them, and when it's time for YOU KNOW WHAT the doctor just asks me to step out into the hallway so as to not embarass my son or myself. I totally understand that, and do that. One funny thing is, once I ended up taking him to a clinic for a sports physical because I couldn't get him in to see the doctor quickly, anyway this beautiful very tall model-looking doctor comes into the room. She looked like Miss America. Anyway, I asked my son if he was embarassed when it was time to cough..............he said it was OK.
