Kids and Medication

| Category: Parenting

We as parents all know that children all to often do not enjoy the taste of medicines which obviously can lead to frustration, awful faces and tears. I want to share a simple trick I have used. Give the child a teaspoon of chocolate syrup (coats the tongue, with the bonus of being a yummy treat for the child!), then the medicine, then another teaspoon of chocolate syrup. I have found this makes medicine time when needed, a little easier. The children may even look forward to it. I guess you could quote Mary Poppins on this one "a spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down......." : )
