It’s a tale as old as time. An old wives tale for the ages: Is it possible to actually get your child to successfully wash up and stay clean throughout the day, without a fuss or fight? While the answer might not be so black or white, there is help out there for fighting the good fight. Make sure your kids have the same routine as far as their hygiene everyday, so that they know what to expect and when to expect it. This can include bathtime after dinner, brushing their teeth before bedtime, washing their hands before meals and when they come home, as well as combing their hair and putting on fresh clothes before they leave the house. Creating a daily chart with all the things they need to do can help keep a visual aid of what they need to remember, as well as providing a great reward system at the end of a perfect week of no missed chores! Your little one will be super excited to do all their hygiene routines and work their way up the chart.
