Publisher's Summary

It's easier for pharmacists to get their kids to take medicine, and in this audiobook, I explain why. 

It makes so much sense for a child to take their medicine, logically. But getting children to take their medicine by justifying it logically is doomed to failure. I'm a dad with three seven-year-old triplet daughters, and I bring you into my thought process when it's time to give them medicine and how I bring them into the conversation - literally. 

At worst, you'll learn a lot about the most common over-the-counter medicines and some of the most prescribed pediatric medicines. At best, you'll work together so both your sick child and you can get some relief.

Great Message!

I was initially intrigued by this title as it was interesting to me the concept of teaching children more about the medicine they might be taking. The author did a great job, specifically in chapter 5, when discussing the different medications a child might be prescribed. By breaking down the pronunciation of the medication while including important key facts, it became easier to understand the goal of each medication and a great mnemonic to remember each. I like the idea of encouraging kids to become educated about what they are putting into their body because it allows for a healthy dialogue regarding what processes are occurring within them, and what is being done to treat something that might be awry. The information was explained in a way that was easily understood, and the personal anecdotes added throughout really reinforced the information being presented for certain medications. Overall, I would highly recommend this book to anyone who might be in a position where they are required to distribute medication to a child!

Great advice!

This book was great to listen to! As a student nurse who hopes to work in pediatrics in the future, this offered me some substantial advice! A part of this book that stuck with me was acting as a "medicine translator" when talking about medicine with children. Trying a new medicine can be scary, especially for children, so making connections with what the child already knows is a great way to lessen fear and make the new drug seem more familiar. This book for sure has great advice at how to work with children to get them to take their medicines.

Good listen

This was my first time listening to a book and I can say I actually enjoyed it. I always put headphones in on Saturday and clean while listening to music, but today I listened to the book. It was really nice to hear someone actually pronouce some of the drugs that I always fumble with. It was easy to listen to and I would recommend giving this a try if you are in healthcare!

Most informative book

I loved chapter 4. Chapter 4 talks about how to pronounce and annunciate medications for children. It talks about how children annunciate words with what they learned in school. It also talks about how when using two bronchodilators you are able to lessen the toxicity of the drugs in the system instead of using one that is then higher dosage. This book definitely helps me while I am trying to study for my BSN and wanting to go into pediatrics.
