All those hours you spent trying to teach your child the importance of right brushing, washing and cleaning are finally paying off. Your child can now take a bath on his own, brush his teeth regularly and correctly and even keep his hair and clothes tidy at most times. Most of the personal hygiene tasks have become a part of his routine and he automatically does them without being reminded, like washing hands before meals, brushing in the morning, etc.
What you need to know
The principles of hygiene should be a part of your child’s everyday life and the best way to teach it is by showing the right way. Lead by example as your child idolizes you, he is sure to follow you in this as well. A good habit of personal hygiene is one of the most important gifts that you can give to your child. This will not only keep infection and sicknesses at bay at this age but also put your child on a path to a healthy future.
