So, what should I do when the child is taken by mistake?

When you find that your child is taken by mistake or suspected of taking the medicine by mistake, parents should not panic, let alone accusing the child loudly, otherwise, the child may cry because of fear, dare not say, unclear, or choose to deceive Parents, this is not conducive to obtaining the detailed information of the child’s misuse of drugs.

4. Parents are best to avoid taking medicines in front of children, and do not let children help take medicine, so as not to imitate the parents’ action to take medicine and take medicine by themselves. In case the child is really serious? The next time I flipped to these medicines, they really took them as “candy”.

5. For older children, in addition to improving their awareness of their safety, parents can also conduct appropriate education for children with common sense of medication and teach them their ability to identify harmful items.
