Nursing ethics

If a child likes the watch I’m wearing and asks me to put it on for the I’m treating him, would you allow it?

For like a couple of minutes? Maybe.

Kind of like I might quickly clean my stetho earpieces and let a kid put them in his/her ears to listen to their heart.

Not clear how this is an ethical decision.....but I love @JKL33 's response. It's a personal choice, and I would be careful in the time of COVID with sharing things. Is there something else you can offer? I assume this is a distractor as you do a procedure?
