My mother feels really sleepy whenever she takes a paracetamol. I don't.

No! How old are your kids and how much have you given them!!!!
What's with the exclamation marks? I'm only stating the fact of my experience. My children are four and two. They've been having Calpol when needed since they were babies. I give them the recommended dose of course. The recommended safe doses do not sedate them. You didn't specify that you meant overdoses will sedate children. Calpol, used properly, does not sedate mine and never has.
Which is just the same as adults with hayfever treatments, some get drowsy and others are unaffected. We all react differently to things.
Yes, that's what I was pointing out. That it's incorrect to say it has a sedative effect on children. It might do but equally it might not.

I'm reminded of a friend who visited a day nursery and noticed that all the children were in their pushchairs looking very drowsy. The owner admitted that she gave them all Calpol! It wasn't long before the nursery was closed down for various infringements.
