My child has a nervous habit of clearing her throat all the time. How can I help her stop?
She's had a cold over two months ago, and that's when it started. She's also developed a strong aversion to medicine; ANY type of medicine, even though what I give her tastes really good? She's in grade one, and that's when all this stuff started. I'm at my wit's end trying to figure out what to do. I've told her time and again that I wouldn't give her anything that tastes bad to me. But she still cries, and gags, and it's just a mess. I've asked her if anyone at school has told her that medicine is bad for you, but she's insistent that no one told her that. There were some additions to her grade one class that weren't in Kindergarten. I'm thinking that one of these kids told her that medicine is bad. And she believes anything that anyone tells her...except me. She thinks that I'm trying to poison her by giving her medicine. Like today, she complained that her head hurt because she had stuffy sinues. So I gave her Benadryl(good stuff)but she sprays it out like I gave her raw sewage.SOS

Fist, as parents we want the best for our children yet we tend to get a little carried away and make mountains out of molehill ( I wouldn’t take my kid to the pediatrician with a self diagnosis of nervous habit ). However, at her age you really need to be calling her pediatrician and not seeking advice online. It seems there are few issues that need addressing. Best wishes

I wouldn't take your child's reaction to the medicine so personally. Maybe the medicine tastes OK to you, but that doesn't mean it does to her. Kids can be very finicky about anything that tastes different. Are you forcing the medicine down her or letting her drink it at her own rate? Can you hide it in something she likes? As to her clearing her throat, since this is a relatively new habit, is it possible that she has post-nasal drip that is causing her to clear her throat. Even though her cold was over a two months ago, she may have a sinus infection that is still actively draining.


that weird chick
i saw in the pharmacy these lollypop medicines. banana, strawberry, grape and lots of other flavors. u might try those, but other than that, i don't know wat to tell u.
