Just reading ,crocheting, and enjoying naps
Any slight sickness was generally treated in the first instance with a laxative of sort- "Stomach pains, or the suspicion of stomach pains, would lead to yet another.""Bad temper was sometimes interpreted as yet another sign that a child needed a laxative"
From opiates to keep a child quiet to laxatives for any changes even slight, I feel sorry for these kids in Victorian era! Makes one glad they were born in their modern time.
