When a youngster up to the age of 10 years old is brought into a home (as often happens with extended family), it might be difficult to predict a successful outcome while taking a temperature orally using a glass oral thermometer no matter. It would be in the best interest of the youngster to take his temperature rectally using a glass rectal thermometer. The main consideration would be how to proceed in relation to the other members of the household.

From the age of 8 until I moved out my adoptive mother took my temperature rectally.I secretly enjoyed it and she felt it was the most accurate way so I never complained about it.Although around the age of 12 I did start to feel a little weird about it but I soon resolved that feeling because I was finding it to be more and more enjoyable.I got to the point where I felt proud as a young woman to be on the receiving end of that thermometer.
