ParentCircle

Raising a healthy child in today’s fast-paced world can be a challenging task. It is important to start teaching personal hygiene and clean habits early.

Remember that you are surrounded by germs everywhere and maintaining special hygiene is of utmost importance, especially in the case of your child. Be a role model and follow hygiene practices daily. You will slowly inculcate these habits in your child from an early age.

The article, Teaching Toddlers About Hygiene, published in Parents, talks about how children are adept at getting filthy – playing in the mud, scratching with their hands and wiping their noses without using tissues.

Here are a few ways to raise your child hygienically:

• Washing hands: It is important for your child to wash his hands regularly. Teach him to wash hands before and after meals, after using the toilet, and after playing or petting animals.

• Bathing regularly: Regular baths will keep your child healthy. Make the whole experience fun one with games and toys.

• Oral hygiene: Dental hygiene is an important part of raising your child hygienically. Teach your child the basics of teeth cleaning including the proper way to brush the teeth and the importance of flossing.

• Cough and sneeze hygiene: Your child should cover his mouth with a tissue when he sneezes or coughs.

Tips to wash your child’s hair properly and skin care tips are among the topics discussed in this ClipBook.
