Parenting is no easy task but the tools afforded these days certainly help. For example, check out this sneaky Medicine Dispensing Sippy Cup ($3.95). You simply add the medicine to an inner cup that hides below the surface so the cup is still very familiar to the child. The medicine and drink are sealed off from one another until all of the medicine is gone. Clever stuff. My poor parents had to chase me around the house with a spoon.
