I’ll be honest… I’m a germ freak and I’ve passed it on a little to my kids. But, the good thing is that Jackson is probably the only 9 year old boy who begins play dates with insisting everyone wash their hands.
Susan struggles to get her girls to wash their hands enough but she finds that a fun soap does the trick. It’s amazing how quickly Sophia stuck out her hands to get the “Mickey Mouse” soap and scrub her hands clean.
I say whatever it takes to get kids washing their hands is for the best. The more they wash their hands, the less we all get sick.
