Call the poison control center

Before interviewing in any way. the parents should call the poison control center for specific directions. Ipecac syrup is no longer recommended. The parents may have to call an ambulance after calling the poison control center. Punishment for being bad isnt appropriate because the parents are responsible for making the environment safe.
