Here are some things you need to know about medicines.

  • Do not take your medicine by yourself unless your parents have given you permission. It is easy to get confused and you could make a mistake.
  • Never take your medicine in front of a younger brother or sister They are copy-cats and if they see you take medicine, they will want some too…and that could be a poison for them.
  • Make sure your vitamins are kept out of reach from a younger brother and sister You are only supposed to take 1 a day unless your doctor tells you to take more. The baby might eat a whole bunch if they think they are candy.
  • NEVER take someone else’s medicine. That could be dangerous!
