Taking Medications - A Challenge for A child

Being a full time mom is never an easy role. You will encounter different challenges on every growing stage of your children. Like in my case, we have two lovely girls. Our eldest is two and a half years old and the youngest is three months old. As a mother, I see to it that they are both well taken cared of every day. One challenge that we have with our daughters is making them take their medications whenever they got sick.

Just recently, my husband took of eldest daughter to her pediatrician to have her eye check. It seems that she has sty on her left eye. As we suspect it, her doctor confirmed it to my husband that it is indeed sty. There are two sty on her left eye. Her pediatrician prescribed her antibiotics to be taken for seven days. At first it was really a challenge making her take the medications, but now after so many convincing moments, she has finally learned to take it without force.

Is it a challenge for your child to take medications?

of course. it is the biggest challenge for kids to take medicine. in the other way round, when there is an advanced technology, the medicines are transformed into chocolate or other forms of sweets so kids keep on asking for it and being overdosed :D

Getting kids to take medicine is difficult as anything can be. Please be patient.

yes, good thing the antibiotics she had this time was orange flavor, her favorite flavor. Now she is asking for more. LOL

When a child is in pain, parents have double effect of pain. It is so hard to see your child struggling.
