    Great for the younger ages. Discussed not to take medicine without an adult present.

    I am so grateful to DCMP for the quality content of this video. As I searched for online materials to supplement my drug awareness lessons for K-2, this video is the only one I found about medicine that I felt was appropriate for the younger students. Worth the time spent completing the required media responses.
