It's not easy to get a child to take medication. We all know what happens when we say, "Here, take this pill!" Whether a child is taking a one-time course of antibiotics for an ear infection or needs to take medication regularly for a chronic condition, medical adherence is critical. The better children can be at taking their medications as prescribed, the more likely they are to get better and/or stay well. Kids of all ages from toddlers to teens will be more willing to take their medication and do medical treatments when parents and medical professionals use the tools in this book.
