Mách các chị em mẹo chống say xe hiệu quả tức thì

con gái bé bỏng khi nói 'say xe' được bố mẹ cho ăn kẹo -> hết say luôn...

hiệu ứng giả dược :)
Dear Dan,

Years ago, my wife and I would take our daughter on long road trips, during which she often complained she felt nauseous (tanh tưởi, làm nôn mửa). We suspected that her nausea was an invention, so we started to give her “medicine” that was actually just some candies in an old prescription bottle, and the symptoms stopped. Our daughter is now an adult with children of her own, and we’ve thought about sharing this story with her, but we’re worried she might not take well to having been tricked. What do you suggest?

You might think you beat your daughter at her own game by giving her fake medicine for her reported symptoms. But it’s possible that your daughter was actually feeling nauseous, and the fake medication helped her due to a placebo effect (hiệu ứng giả dược): The pretend medication created an expectation (kỳ vọng) about feeling better that resulted in an actual improvement. There is evidence suggesting that a placebo can work even when one is aware of it.

As for telling your daughter now, there’s likely enough separation between her childhood self and her current self that sharing the story won’t damage her trust in you. In fact, she might appreciate the helpful parenting tip!
