Yesterday my son Brett (5) was diagnosed with pink eye. Of course they gave me drops to give him and of course he wouldn't take them. My DH is away for a week (great timing) and I think Brett didn't think I would push it. I tried everything and then fed up, I forced it. I basically just got him down on his back, put the bottle of drops in my mouth, straddled him and put my knees on his arms. I took the drops out of my mouth, unscrewed the lid and put the drops in. All the while he was screaming and thrashing but I got them in. He calmed down after that but Mom didn't lol! I felt terrible and didn't hardly sleep. He took the meds this morning before school but I'm at work now and still wondering if I somehow traumatized him or will have child services after me lol. Please help me with your feedback. Thanks.
