Hyperactive kids are a big headaches for some parents or teachers and if u search a solution for it on the internet you could find an answer like this..
“If the kids become too much to handle, give them a little cold medicine. It’s an often-repeated joke or advice that parents share on the playground or on Twitter and Facebook pages”.
This is not some joke or story that i found on internet its a reality happening in our kindergartnes or playschools and even homes ,if the kid is very hyperactive staffs or parents are ready to give medicines like cough syrups for children so they will sleep.Parents or staffs may give their children some medication to relax and think they’re not harming them
drugging children with over-the-counter or prescription medications can have unintended consequences even sometimes it leads to death in extreme cases.
when i asked to one mother about the reality behind this story she said
“It’s certainly better than being pushed to edge, spanking a child or slamming doors or really losing it,” and she was okay with it,.
Drugging kids for parents’ relief called abusive by CNN but this not a very rare case, many newse’s from various playschools and kindergartens proves that many parents or staff itself drug very hyper active childrens for their relaxation.
and the shocking factor is that they use cough syrups as a solution . This happens to families when “they feel overwhelmed or desperate,
But drugging children with over-the-counter or prescription medications can have unintended consequences.
and there are many examples from various places in the world that over use of drugs leads to death in extreme cases, even some serious drugs are used for child abuse by criminals more over its a very selfish act by some adults for their relaxation or happiness.
we need to be more careful while we sending our kids to pre schools and need to keep a very good communication with them to avoid these kind of serious issues.
