It's Tough To Be A Parent

Being a parent is such a huge responsibility. You think you're giving your child some benadryl to dry up their runny nose and really you're killing them. So now they say we can't give kids cold medicines if they are under 6 and that they don't really work anyway. Instead they suggest

Moisturizing the air with a vaporizer or hydrator
Using saltwater nose drops to dry up a runny nose
Using a rubber nose bulb to clear up congestion
Feeding the child chicken soup
Consulting a pediatrician

I'm not sure if we'll stop giving our kids cold medicine, but that rubber nose bulb is no fun. JM
