Life Retreat’s Friday Weekly Round Up

weekly round up medicine

Getting your kids to take medicine, especially if they have a chronic condition, can be a challenge for any parent. But, there’s a simple trick I recently learnt to help my kids take their “not sweet” medicine. 

All you have to do is take an ordinary ice cube and rub it over your child’s tongue. The rubbing helps freeze their taste buds for a few seconds and lets them swallow their medicine without having to taste it. Good luck!

Here’s a wrap up of what you missed here at Life Retreat this week. Enjoy the long weekend!
