Children can be a little more complicated to protect against colds, the flu and other viruses. They will put fingers in their mouths, touch things without worrying about germs and approach people even if they appear to be sick.
What steps do you take to try and protect your children during cold and flu season? Do you keep them home from school? Do they wear a mask when out in public? Have they had their flu shot? Do you encourage them to use hand sanitzers? Share your tips with others.
As a teacher I often has so many kiddos in my class that would go to school sick either with a cold or some type of virus or bug. I ended up with viral meningitis because one of my students went to school sick. It reminded me the importance of trying to keep kids home, not only for their health and safety but for others in the classroom who may be compromised. For anyone with a compromised immune system it would be a good idea to make the classroom and parents aware (even without using names) so that more can be conscientious of others and their health!
