Getting your kids to take medicine isn’t the easier task.

If they’re not spitting it out everywhere, they’re refusing to take it entirely.

Thankfully, a mum has shared a simple trick she uses to get her little boy to take his medicine without a tantrum.

The dad explained that his two-year-old hated taking his medication until he came across the game-changing hack.

With the help of a little bit of “reverse psychology”, the little boy takes the meds without a second thought – and he even looks as if he’s enjoying it.

The mum took to Facebook to share the hack in the Family Lockdown Tips & Ideas group where parents praised her creativity.

She said: “So my 2-year-old son hated to take his meds! And I found the best way to do it!!!! Hahahah.

“I pretend to not know what to do and I let him show me. No tantrums no dramas yayyyyy.”

Since being shared, the post has racked up almost 900 likes and dozens of comments from fellow parents praising the idea.

One person said: “Absolutely brilliant and wonderful parenting.”

Another commented: “Haha this is exactly what I had to do with my little girl to get her to take medication worked wonders and ever since no problems.”

“Brilliant. Reverse physiology at its finest. Touché!” wrote a third.

And someone else put: “Great idea. He’s very cute and looks so proud of himself.”
