In brief: Depends
When given in recommended amounts for the right reason it is not only safe,it is the standard of care for many problems.
Prednisone mimics a natural stress hormone made by the body.That's why we studied it and found out how to use it.

In brief: Yes
Prednisone is well tolerated by children.
Moreover, short course of treatment does not require tapering.
