Mary Poppins was right!

A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down!

In our case it’s a jelly bean instead of a spoonful, but the same result 🙂

J had been really struggling with taking the antibiotic for her ear infection. It was becoming a battle that was just kind of awful. So, after 4, almost 5, years of successfully not using candy as a reward I caved.

Yep, I told her if she took it without delay or complaining she could have a jelly bean.

It worked! Amazingly, she took it and then was really excited about the jelly bean. No complaint or delaying.

Some lessons from movies are worth paying on. This one attend to be a winner!
