EZ1923: Ok, but what the hell is a satchet?
Unoriginal_Username: If your kids swallowing this stuff, you need to be slapped./pay attention to your fking kids, it's not that hard
UCFRoadWarrior: Actually, we did not have all these problems when we could slap kids. The Do-Gooders with Child Protective Services...arresting everyone who spanked their child (but let the abusers go free)...is why you have all these issues today.Spanking will not prevent every bad ingestion...but it will stop most of them. Especially toilet mints
safeforwork: Kiddo was 3-4 months old... needed diaper changed, so I grabbed him, diaper rash cream, and diaper. Got to his room and the diaper was gone - figured I'd dropped it so I set him down on the floor and the cream on the changing table shelf. Walked the 10 feet to the living room, back into room... baby laughing hysterically, tube of diaper rash cream squeezed in one hand.. empty tube... and it's obvious he's eaten it. I have no idea how the heck he got it - he wasn't even crawling yet at that point! I panic, call poison control... they laugh and say I'm the third or so person to call about this in the last hour and I didn't need to worry - except maybe get a couple more boxes of diapers for dealing with the laxative effects of the cream.Few years later. Kiddo now 3 years old. I'd gotten him a pair of 'cool' shoes and he wanted to put them on soon as we walked in the door. I hand him the box and he runs into his room to put them on. All went well, until about 30 minutes later when he randomly says 'the sugar these came with was really funny tasting...' ....... what? He shows me the packet... yup, silica gel! Call poison control center in a panic... basically just get laughed at again...Kids, man...
SkerriNinja: The only thing my kid ever ate was a half a tube of A&D ointment.
Rik01: This is one reason why I chose not to have kids.

devellediamond: I was a child who ate a glowstick around 1994. I can't remember how it tasted, but I remember being really excited for the results of what it would do to me. For some reason I believed flying, or having some sort of superpower was the direct result of my action./Disappointed
