I'm a mom – my husband came up with a brilliant idea to get our son to take his medicine, people are calling it genius

GETTING your kids to take their medicine can be an impossible feat, even when they're feeling their worst.

Fortunately, a dad has come up with a rather unconventional yet brilliant way to make sure his son doesn't throw a fit.


Mom Crystal Ransons shared that when their son refused to take his medicine, dad suggested doing shots.

Sitting side by side, her husband, Scott, and son had two shot glasses each.

Their son's was filled with medicine and the dad's had Gatorade in it, which was the same color as their son's medicine.

In the video, the two of them clinked their glasses before downing them back.
