Thank God the kids are ok, the outcome could have been really bad !
We’ve to keep our medication / drugs away from kids indeed. That makes me think about an incident last week at our house. My 8yr old foster daughter has a Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), one of the symptoms is compulsive stealing & lying. In one of her hunts for foods and interesting things to steal, she climbed a chair, then counter and took a full bottle of Panadol last week. I was so relieved to find it out in time, when she only had drunken one sip of the bottle, but planned to drink the whole bottle in the night as if it was a smoothie !! I might have not been able to wake her up. Now we have it in a locked cupboard.
