Can you tell me what kind of remedies can I give for children with a cough?

Honey. Honey was compared to cough syrup with dextromethorphan and honey was equally effective for helping coughs. So a tsp of honey or some warm herbal tea with honey is fine. Running a humidifier and having the child sleep propped up may also help. Remember, never give honey to babies under 1 year of age. .
