5-year-old boy calms himself down by singing Frank Sinatra at the doctor’s office

Nobody likes getting shots at the doctor, especially if you’re a kid.

Raven Skye, a 5-year-old from Caloocan City in the Philippines, was absolutely terrified to get an anti-rabies vaccine last June. He had been scratched by a stray cat while playing and required the shot as a precaution. The boy’s family brought him to a local clinic for the routine procedure but fear quickly took over.

“His brothers and sisters tease him about the needle at home so his fears grew,” his aunt Maria Chris Kyosa told Newsflare.

Raven cried and resisted the shot, but in the end, he used an unexpected coping mechanism to stay brave. It turns out he’s a huge Frank Sinatra fan. Kysoa told Newsflare that Raven likes to dance and sing while watching Sinatra’s videos at home.

Raven was understandably fussy out of fear when the doctor pulls out the needle, but when the doctor finally injects Raven’s arm, Raven shots the lyrics to “I Love You, Baby.”

“I love you baby, and if it’s quite alright, I need you, baby,” Raven sings as he covers his eyes.

But it’s not over yet. Raven needs a shot in his other arm too. This does not sit well with him and he cries again. But as the upbeat doctor injects the vaccine, Raven sings Sinatra again to get through it.

After the procedure, Raven tearfully rushes over to a family member for some consoling.

“I’m glad he found a healthy and fun way to cope with his fears,” Kyosa said.
