Your child may want to pretend to be a doctor or nurse. Handling tools for measuring medicine help children feel more comfortable with taking medication or going to the doctor. Parents should be sure to teach children the difference between real and pretend as well as setting safety boundaries to not take the real medicine mom or dad give with the doctor’s orders.
