Many adults can get confused trying to give their children medication.

A new study shows as many as half of all adults make mistakes when giving medicine to their kids.

The American Medical Association says complicated labeling may be the major problem.

They say, in many cases the directions on the bottle used terms such as teaspoon or tablespoon, while a cup or stopper showed doses in milliliters.
