This project intends to support better communication between parents and children in the stressful moment with design.
As a child I did not like taking medicines and often made my parents struggle to get me to take them. Based on that memory, I wondered what I could create to make taking medication a more positive experience for children. Forcing children to take medication can be stressful for everyone involved. However, taking the time to let children understand why they need the medication is important. So this “medicinekit” includes a picture book which helps to explain this aspect in simple manner. By relating the shape of the medi- cine to the character in the picture book, I attempted to reduce the fear of medicine.
