parental worries

If there's anything that worries parents about their children - it is always primarily on the aspect of health. Thankfully, our daughter hasn't had any major health concerns ever since although she's been sniffling lately due to a common cold. This started last Sunday when we decided to bring her to church with us. It was still hot at four p.m. when we left the house and commuted our way to church.

I'm tempted to buy her over-the-counter medicine for the common cold but husband said we will just let her drink lots of water and double her dosage of vitamin C. He didn't want our daughter to be always taking medicines.

Right now, there's another tooth coming. So, sometimes she goes fussy but most of the time she's still the cheerful baby Pauline.

I wonder 'when is the right time to let her take medicine?'


  1. We've never given Rome medicines for cold, since his pediatrician said it's really not needed, especially for young babies and toddlers. Unless he's running a fever, we pretty much let the cold virus run its course. :)

    Dipx2's tooth shouldn't be too much of a bother. I think the molars start coming out in a few more months, and that will probably start to irritate her. :) I think she'll take it like a champ though.

  2. yeah, thanks dear.. i know she's tough like her momma.. LOL

  3. Cover your child and your whole family with the blood of Jesus Christ as protection against all the works of the enemy against the children of God. We should not worry but instead surrender all things to God and He will take good care of everything. As the Bible says, "Submit yourself, then, to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Come near to God and He will come near to you" (James 4:7-8a). "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths" (Proverbs 3:5-6). Actually, this is the gist of the song of Gary Valenciano- Take Me Out Of The Dark. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
