Little Tip

Learning to swallow pills can be tough for kids. My visitting teaching companion is a nurse at the Children's Hospital and she told me it is easiest to learn with mini/baker's M&M's and milk. The candy helps overcome the mental obstacle and the milk carries it down the throat more easily than water.

(Worked like a charm for Carmen.)

Thanks for the tip! Whitney is a nightmare when it comes to medicine, so I really should have her practice like this so she's ready the next time she gets sick.

I would like to practice with that "medicine". Are they "skinny pills" because that's what they'll do for me??

Now, THAT is a great idea!
