Traditional Medicine (TM) existed in human communities before contemporary science was applied to health. Despite the fact that many studies on adult TM usage have been completed, there have been little investigations on the topic of parenteral TM use in Ethiopian children. As a result, the purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence and associated correlates of parental TM use in children in North Mecha District, North West Ethiopia. Many factors have recently pushed people all over the world to depend on traditional, complementary, and alternative medicine. Because it is more accessible, less expensive, more closely related to the patients' belief system, and less paternalistic than current medication, the allure of conventional, corresponding, and elective treatment grows [1,2].

An organised questioner-managed survey was used to collect information. It was either the father or mother of the children who was met. However, mothers were prioritised because they are closer to their children than fathers. Organized questioner-directed polls were adjusted and changed from previous research on comparable topics and were translated into the local language. The first part was made up of inclining factors. The survey handled parental socio segment attributes and worth - accept frameworks in this section. A pre-test was conducted in another kebele with 5% of actual respondents to assess the legality and dependability of the instrument, the clarity of the queries, and respondent response to the inquiry and questioner. Following the pre-test, confusing queries were gathered, and questioners adjusted as needed. However, the information from the pre-test was not included in the examination. Standard checking and oversight of the general movement was completed by the managers and head specialist during the information collection time to ensure the quality of information. The distinction could be due to methodological and societal differences between the investigations [3].

Previous investigations were focused on medical care settings, whereas this examination was focused on the surrounding neighbourhood. However, the study was conducted in contrast to the study conducted in the Eastern Harargie region of Oromya locality, Ethiopia, where uvulectomy, tonsillectomy, burning, milk teeth extraction, thorough mending, and natural medication were the most commonly used therapies. The difference could be due to the investigation population; in this study, members were guardians with children under the age of eighteen, whereas in previous studies, members were guardians with children under the age of five. Furthermore, tonsillectomy, burning, and milk teeth extraction are frequently performed on children under the age of five, rather than on older children. The study found that for the majority of parents, traditional medications were among the options for advancing, preventing, and treating their children's health/medical disorders [4].

Home grown medications, tight practise, knead, bone pioneers, and tooth extraction were all often used conventional medical therapies. Female guardians, poor educational standing of guardians, effectively openness of customary medications, low cost, and perceived viability of conventional prescriptions were all markers for guardians to use customary medication for their children. When compared to those who perceived usual medication as being generally accessible, guardians who saw it as being unavailable were 2.97 times more likely to use it for their children [5].
