Yesterday evening I suddenly noticed that Ricki had a bottle of medicine. I quickly asked her what it was , and why she had it.
“Oh, I want to take some Acamol (like Tylenol) for my throat.”
“RICKI LET ME SEE THAT RIGHT AWAY!!!!”
It was a bottle of Hydrogen Peroxide!
I thought she knew that she can’t take medicines on her own.
I was wrong.
I have initially repeated (several times) since then that she can’t just take anything. But I am going to have to do better than that. I will need to teach her about non-prescription medicines, the rules involved, uses, doses, limitations…..
