Inculcating Clean Habits Among Children


Whoever said “hygiene is two-thirds of health” was right!

Babies aren’t born with the knowledge of how to keep clean. Hygiene, like every other habit, has to be learnt, and it has to be learnt at an early age. So, lose no time in teaching your child cleanliness.

Teaching your child hygiene is not a complicated mission. Hygiene is all about keeping oneself and one’s surroundings clean. The way to make a habit into a lifestyle is to practice it regularly. This will help them live hygienic and thereby healthy lives as adults.

Toddlers and pre-schoolers tend to make mess and leave their surroundings untidy. However, as they grow older parents can teach them to keep their rooms neat and clean. The children become responsible for their surroundings. It is also very important for the parents to teach children to respect their environment and others who live in it.

We keep hearing about strange and hybrid strains of common and uncommon illnesses. One way to keep these diseases at bay is to have your children wash their hands properly. Teach them how to wash their hands properly and how often they need to do it. Similarly, brushing teeth properly helps prevent cavities and other tooth and gum problems. According to childrensnational.org, Dr. Erik M. Scheifele, oral health specialist, has this to say: “Children with healthy teeth and gums have a healthy smile, which can help with their psychological growth as well.”

You are probably asking yourself what hygiene habits to teach your children, whether there are tools like videos and games to help you with these lessons, what your children need to know about keeping the toilet clean, which is the best way to teach these to your preschooler and more.
