LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - With medications that look like candy, what do you do to keep your kids away from what could be dangerous?
Educator with Franciscan St. Elizabeth's Kathryn Weil Center, Denise Seeger says to keep pills away from areas where kids could reach.
Seeger says if kids do get into the pills, call the poison control center and have the bottle on hand.
She says common cleaning supplies also need to be kept out of reach.
"The best thing to do is to tell them not to put anything in their mouth, unless they've checked with you first," Seeger said. "That's the safest way to do it, because they're just aren't going to have that executive decision making to be able to figure it out in all cases. Some things are so similar in shape and size and color."
