Children between the ages of 3 to 5 are beginning to exert and exercise the reins of independence. Apart from learning to feed and dress themselves, they also become more responsible for their personal hygiene – learning to use a toilet on their own, to wash their hands and use a tissue when needed. As parents, we should enable children to grow, flourish and function independently under our protection.

In such a highly dense city that we live in, it becomes even more critical to teach our children good hygiene practices from a young age so that they can protect themselves from nasty infections, especially those commonly spread by contact.
|Say ‘No’ to germy hands!|
In our household, we remind Dana constantly to wash her hands:
1. Immediately after she steps home from school
2. before she eats her meals
3. after playground time
4. after using the toilet
5. after art and crafts
6. after playing with her toys
7. after gardening
8. after browsing library books
9. after handling coins (and money)
10. after she sneezes or coughs
Handwashing can sometimes seem like a chore but Lifebuoy has rolled out a new Colour Changing Hand Wash that turns green (like the incredible hulk) within 10 seconds to signal all the germs have been killed. Dana found the ‘colour changing’ hand wash fascinating and intriguing! The unique formula changes colour as they lather, and when it turns green, they’re ready to rinse! The special formulation protects hands from 10 skin infection causing germs.
