Any tips on how to get a 9 year old to swallow her medicine? Both of the girls was sick last week and got put on antibiotics. The doctor gave my oldest pills because she said it would be like 4 bottles to take if she gave her liquid based on my dds weight. So we got pills. And it's the biggest ordeal trying to get her to swallow them. I can remember being a child and having a hard time swallowing pills for the first time.But I really don't know what advice to tell her other than, don't think about it just get a big drink and swallow lol. Any advice?
