Hi guys. I am new here and didn't know where to post this topic. Okay, so my daughter is sick with a bad cold (she's 26 months old). She absolutely won't take her medicine. 
I have tried various flavors, bribery, games, trying to hide it in food and drink.  Anyway, I know none of these things work with her. She has always refused to take it. Either clamps her lips shut or spits it out.  So, tonight, I had to force her to take it. She absolutely screamed the house down. I made it as quick as I could.  The problem lies with my partner. We had an argument about it and he started telling me that I "need to make it fun" , "obviously what I am doing is not working", comments like that. I told him that I have tried everything and it doesn't work, that I am with her most of the time so I do know what she is like. He is hardly ever home which is fine because he does a great job providing for our family but I sometimes feel like he questions my parenting skills. I told him that maybe if he's so full of advice, he should give it to her, but I got no response. My partner is a great guy, and I love him heaps but sometimes he just thinks he's right all the time. I feel so bad forcing my little girl but I really want her to get better. 
I am sorry for the long post, but I feel like a bad mother and need to know if I have done the wrong thing?

I have explained to my partner that I really welcome his input as a father. But at the end f the day I am the one providing the care and I need to be able to do things my way but I strongly welcome his advice and opinions. I named some times where his advice changed the way Inparented. But he needs to do it constructively. If he dos not do it constructively I will not be held responsible for the losing of the temper.
