Okay…I have a confession to make:
I have no idea how to get a young child to take terrible medicine.
And I’ve spent the last ten days trying.
I finally realized that sometimes you just have to do whatever works. And, what worked this week (most of the time) was a powdered doughnut after every dose. The medicine my child was taking is terrible tasting and full of grit. I imagine taking it is much like drinking sand, and it turns out the powdery doughnuts helped take some of that sandy feeling away much quicker than water. They didn’t work every time, but those doughnuts did help get us through the week.
How do you convince your kids to take their medicine?
