I'm writing a kind of a little senario. A child was running. There was a stone in the road so he felt. His leg hurt. A doctor was passing by and said:
You will be okay. You just need to sit here and have a little rest for a few minutes.
I'm not sure if the doctor should say: You need to stay sitting here. As the boy is already sitting on the ground because of his leg hurting. Is the word rest good? or Is it should be used in situations like an athlete who has been training for a long time for example? Does the sentence, in general, mean that the boy shouldn't move and stay where he is for a few minutes.
I know that this is not good medical advice but it has its purpose :D
