Nurturing good decision making skills is a key component of teaching medication safety. By engaging in activities that foster decision-making, children learn to weigh options and make responsible choices–an invaluable life skill that can keep them safe through adolescence and beyond. Equally important is insuring that medicines are stored securely and that children understand medication safety basics.
