It's not an easy thing to do. I get them to put water in their mouth first and then lean back and drop the pill in and swallow immediately. I also tell them to keep drinking from their glass and don't worry if it didn't go down right away, just keep swallowing. This has worked, but it can still take some time for the child to accomplish and they will probably panic and spit the pill out on their first few tries.
I was never able to do it, I keep having to crush them on a teaspoon for them to take it. But then again I crushed my own on a teaspoon until I was like 20 something. I kept thinking I would choke on the pill.
