Young children love to play outdoors and get dirty or chaotic most of the time. This is a kind of childhood experience where they can get to know the world around them, and you can’t learn that in the classroom. However, most parents tend to worry that their children will get sick from the harmful bacteria and gems out there.
Teaching your young children about personal hygiene is an important process in building their self-esteem. Here are some useful tips to teach them good daily body care habits.
It is very important for daily body care that your children wash their hands regularly. From visiting a sick person or after “dirty” work to handling food, make sure your children wash their hands with soaps, preferably with antibacterial properties, as a precaution.
You can teach your children how to judge whether their hands are completely clean by singing “Happy Birthday” or reciting the alphabet while washing so they don’t do it hastily. To make it more interesting, use hand soaps that smell of your favorite fruit or flower flavors. You would love to use the soap to have hands that smell nice!
The next step is the teeth! Teach them how to brush their teeth without damaging or damaging their gums, so that they are not afraid. Make them brush their teeth at least twice a day before breakfast and before going to bed. After meals they should rinse their mouths with water, refuse to brush to get rid of any food residue stuck between their teeth. Try to use child’s toothpaste or toothpaste without a strong mint taste if they cannot withstand it.
Bathing is also very important! Some children think that bathing is a chance to splash around with water, so it shouldn’t be too hard to get them to take a bath. Integrate toys into the bathroom or teach them to sing nursery rhymes about body parts, “head, shoulders, knees and toes” while helping them wash those parts if they are reluctant.
After bathing, remember to turn into clean clothes or it contradicts the purpose of being clean. Have your children change their clothes twice a day, at least because the clothes can get stained and dirty, especially their underwear. If you leave them overnight, bacteria can work on these stains and it becomes unhygienic. The shoes should be left in the air or under the sun to allow them to dry and kill the germs inside. Remember to tell your children to wash their feet after coming back from outside to get rid of dirt and dirt.
