Special thanks to Exergen for making this post possible.
Back to school is here and that means that germs and bacteria are lurking everywhere. It’s possible to help avoid some types of germs by following specific health rituals. Here are some tips for keeping your kids healthy, even when they head back to school.
This tip probably can’t be reiterated enough and it’s okay to remind your kids a million times. Even when they walk in the door from school, remind them to wash their hands before they touch anything or anyone. When they can’t wash their hands, recommend that they use Thieves waterless hand purifier. They don’t need to be obsessive about it, but they should be conscious of the need to wash their hands as often as possible.
Don’t Share Stuff
It’s tempting for kids to share drinks and snacks while they’re at school. They’ll even share pencils and other school items, but it’s best to stick with using their own items while at school. Even at home this is a wise idea as germs spread like wildfire across homes and school settings.
Sometimes there’s nothing you can do to prevent your kids from getting sick, it’s the nature of being a kid. However, if they do get sick, it’s best to be prepared right away. I keep items like the Exergen SmartGlow TemporalScanner on hand. This is an awesome tool to help you stay prepared for sickness because it is non-invasive (for those kids that hate being touched when they’re sick). I love this thermometer because it can be used on infants, toddlers, children, and adults. Also, it’s accurate, so I can get exact temperature readings without any trouble. I've been using Exergen thermometer's for as long as I've been a Mom and literally carry one in my diaper bag at all times, keep one in medicine cabinet, and keep one in our travel stuff. Thanks to Exergen, I just gave two to our church to keep in the children's and youth departments!
Hopefully your family has no trouble staying healthy this school year. Follow these tips to stay healthy and be prepared with the right tools on hand just in case.
