How to Get Kids to Take Medicine

Getting kids to take medicine this winter season can be stressful for any parent. Many try to find tricks to get their kids to take their medicine. However, Kids In The House interviewed expert Kelly Townsend who shared the real importance of getting kids to their medicine.

Townsend explained that parents should never tell their kids that medicine tastes like candy because then they may start viewing it like candy. She encourages all parents to explain the importance of taking medicine as directed and read the directions with them.

If kids are having a hard time taking medicine, Townsend advises parents to make sure there is a treat available afterwards. This will help deal with the taste that may be hard for them to deal with after they take the medicine.
