Should someone else ever give this to your kid?

 If your child requires medication, whether a prescription or OTC for something, do you think it's okay for someone (not a doctor, nurse, etc.) to give that to them?

 Depends on the person giving it to them. My MIL yes, my stepdaughter yes, my husbands brother yes, anyone else, no.

If it's a family member, sure, but that's about as far as it goes with my list of who I trust.

It depends who it is. Family and certain friends I would. No one would give him anything without asking me first.

The people I know would get the dosing wrong and say" oh, it won't hurt" and that I turned out fine.

Depends on who it is and what they want to give.

Well I would not leave my kid with someone I didn't trust to care for them. So yes I would be ok with it. As long as it is something I know about.

If it's a family member then yea. If it's a teacher then only if they called me and asked first. Anyone else no.

My DD has severe food allergies so I have to have an epipen at school and benadryl, they have all the information.

everywhere she goes, she has her medication with her and I tell people who are in charge of her for the time being what to give her; I cannot put her in a bubble
