I just found out yesterday that my son has an ear infection and he has to be on antibiotics for 14 days, 3 times a day.
Yesterday he resisted taking the medicine but mananged to bribe him with chocolate. Today he flat out refused to drink it and ended up being in time out for almost an hour. Every two minutes I would go into his room and offer the medicine to him, but he wouldn't take it. Finally, I had to pretty much force it down his throat, and even then, some of it he mananged to spit out. I don't think I can do this for another 13 days!!! Any suggestions on what has worked for you.......treats, time outs and force feeds have not worked for me!!!!!! HELP :)
