I know of a few mothers that have on occasion, and some quite regularly, give their kids Calpol, Mediced or Neurofen to their kids when they aren't actually ill.
They have given it to them before bed if they are staying in a strange place.
I've even heard someone suggesting that it should have been given to a little girl on her bday to 'calm her down'
Is this a common practise?
I'm not one for giving out Calpol very often.....my kids have to be ILL before i give them any.
