I personally think it's a good idea. Considering what is in most medicines... food coloring and additives to make it taste better... we wonder why kids are getting intolerances? or having reactions to things later in life? As terrible as it sounds, it's ok for kids to get sick. It builds up their immunity to other things in life... and as Calvin's dad says (in Calvin and Hobbes) "It builds character."
I don't personally take meds unless I need to because of what they can do the body. Anything not natural is taxing on your liver. I have to be really in bad shape before any cold medicine goes in me... I will do natural/herbal remedies at any cost before buying cold/flu meds.
I'm not confused. I'm just well mixed. ~Robert Frost
