    School requesting medicine?

    Advertisements
    How would you feel if your childs school called you and requested that you make sure that your child is on their medicine, and to send some to school in case it was forgotten at home?

    This isn't a small child, think 12ish.

    If the child WAS on a medication, then I see no problem with the nurse suggesting that he/she take it before school and have an extra supply of it at school.

    I guess if we are talking about ADD/ADHD medicine then I would understand. I'm assuming that is what we are discussing. Some children do not do well off of their meds, and it is disruptive to the rest of the class. If T forgot his medicine enough that the school felt the need to remind me, I'd probably feel a little ashamed, but definitely not upset with them.

    I think I'd be sad more than anything else.

    I would hate to think that my child was disrupting the class to the point where the school had to call me about my child's meds.

    They just randomly called you out of the blue to tell you to make sure your child was on medication? I'd be furious, but I'd want to know what inspired that kind of comment too.

    If it's something where the child was previously on medication, and you suddenly stopped sending it, I could see where the concern would be.

    If the child needs to be on the medication either because otherwise they are disruptive or because there could be serious consequences, I would understand although I'd be embarrassed that it came to that. However, sending extra just in case the child misses a dose at home had best be dealt with where they CALL before giving it to the child rather than assuming they didn't take it.

    I think it is a great idea to have the school help with ensuring children get the medicine they need, but only if I am the one still 100% in control. I don't want my kid ODing on their meds because the school didn't believe my child about taking it and made them take more.

    This was normal when I was in school and with my bro and sis and their meds... I wouldn't be offended, it sounds like they're watching out for your child maybe.
