It’s once again the time of year when it seems everywhere you turn you see people coughing and sneezing. No one wants to take that home with them, but we cannot lock the doors and stay inside until spring. The next best option has to be hand washing. The better job we do washing our hands, the less likely we will be to bring flu and other viruses into our homes and bodies this year.
“Remember, good health hygiene is critical and as parents, it’s really important to teach our kids good health hygiene from the very start so healthy habits can continue as they get older.” Children cannot protect themselves from germs if we do not show them how to properly wash their hands.
So simple and yet so often overlooked. Take the time to clean your hand and teach your children to clean them properly as well. Your family will thank you for it.
