Remember cold medicine when we were kids? Our choices were either Orange – that we knew didn’t taste like an orange – or the gag-inducing mystery flavor. Not to sound too “back in my day”-ish, but we never had any of those yummy flavors when we were kids!
I think the flavors of the medicine we were given actually made us feel worse than the cold or fever that kept us home from school.
How Both Mom And Kids Can Get Relief
Children’s Advil® is available in all of those great tasting flavors. They even have Grape Chewables and easy-to-swallow tablets for the older kids who are just ‘too cool’ for liquid Advil. And, they’re easily found at your local Walgreens, so they’re just a quick drive, or walk, away.
We know how it is when our kids are sick. We want to bring them relief fast and they don’t want medicine that’s tough to take or that tastes bad. Children’s Advil® brings their fever down fast and keeps it down longer compared to Children’s Tylenol®.
Five Ways To Cheer Up Your Kids When They’re Sick
- Don’t give them disgusting medicine. Choose a flavor that they love. If you have to get a liquid prescription medicine, ask the pharmacist if they can flavor it for you. Most pharmacies have flavors they can add to any liquid medicine.
- Make silly videos with them. Or videos of them asking for pity gifts because 60% of the time, it works every time.
- Read to them. Read Tolstoy’s War and Peace. It will put them right to sleep. It will put you right to sleep. Make sure that you tell them there will be a quiz afterwards.
- Remember when your grandparents used to tell you that their parents would give them liquor to ward off a cold or fever (oh my God, I hope I’m not the only one!)? Anyway, take that liquor… Please keep reading, because I’m not telling you to give your kids liquor. That would be irresponsible. Instead, drink a few shots, then put on an entire Shakespearean play. By yourself. Or with your spouse. Who is sober and can’t follow along to the lines you’re making up.
- Give your child a hug. Then, quickly grab them by the ankles, flip them upside down, and shake the cold or fever from their soul. Really show that sickness who’s boss. It should fall out of them like change from an overfilled pocket.
Please note: All of these are really horrible tips. Except for number 1 – that’s a really great tip. And maybe number 2. Definitely NOT number 5. But we highly recommend number 1.
We just want to make you laugh when you’re trying to make your kids feel better. Way to go, moms and dads!
