Removing cough and cold medicines for very young children from store shelves led to a big decline in emergency room visits for bad reactions to the drugs, government research found.
But the results released online Monday are a mixed bag: Some parents were still giving their infants and toddlers these medicines, and many ER cases still involved youngsters who apparently got hold of the medications themselves.
Did you catch that last sentence? What are you showing your kids? That health is in a bottle? A huge bonus to kids who get adjusted is that they learn and trust that their body will take care of themselves, they don’t need medicine. Do your kids a favor, lead by example and be the best healthy role model they know.
