If your child fell off the top of a slide or something, then said their arm hurt, how long would you wait to take them to the doctor? If it were visibly swollen? If they didn't use it at all? What about if they are 'dramatic' about injuries, even small scrapes?

edit: one of my preschoolers fell off the slide at his house on SUNDAY...he hasn't used his arm since, said it hurt, cried when someone touched it or he tried to wash his hands and it was swollen. Parents took him to the doctor today..and it was broken!!! poor kid!!! we'd been telling them for days that he really complained about it :( But, they also don't want to pick up their baby when he has 103 degree fever...they say it's teeth.
