I had a fun interview on BBC Radio Leeds this morning talking about a book the presenter found in his attic.

We had bathing kids in tea and vinegar to reduce  their temperature, to putting whiskey in their bottle to help them sleep through.


We also heard about giving kids Steedman’s power for practically everything from bowels to behaviour  – which actually contained opiates and mercury !


What are the tips that were passed down to you ?
