All children are blessings and should be treated as such. We only want the best from our little bundles of joys. We were there from the very beginning and now they are learning how to crawl, walk, talk, and as soon as you know it you’re contemplating preschool.
We would love for out children to also have the most fun filled time while they are still at this tender stage and that means things can get a bit messy. Children will go from dinner disasters to playing in the sand and dirt, we don’t want to spoil their fun but there are some sanitary measurements we have to take as parents to protect our kids from the spread of germs and viruses and this starts with their toys! The silent germ spreaders that we basically push our child’s way.
It is vital to clean the toys your child usually comes in contact with because here is where it all starts. Children will take these toys and roll it all over the floors, underneath couches and beds, then they will shove their little fingers into their mouths. What’s worst is if your child is still at the stage where everything they touch is food! Toys which have been played with outside should also been sanitized because you wouldn’t want those outside germs to spread onto other toys in the home or in a toy chest.
Children all over are constantly becoming sick after the ingestion of dirt. Playing in the sand or dirt can also lead to ringworm infections, which are the most common among children. This is a skin infection caused by a fungus and is highly contagious. This can spread with:
Person to person contact – direct contact with the infected area of the skin to another person’s skin
Animal to person contact – direct contact with the infected area of the skin to a person’s skin
Infected objects to person contact – Contact with objects that have been touched by an infected
person(including their hair).
Soil to person contact.- Contact with soil that is greatly infected
It is so important to keep things sanitized when you have young children. I would suggest you keep a play area for your child because that makes things much easier to clean and they will have a ball no matter what. Safety first!
