The Old Fashioned Ways Still Work

Now that I am back to being the primary caregiver for my two-year-old grandson, (while his mom is away at college), I am back to keeping up with his day-to-day routine.

I am also doing my best to keep him relatively germ free as we move into flu season. One thing I must've forgotten over the years is how cold and flu season keeps a child sneezing, coughing and a runny nose to boot.

As a baby boomer mom and grandmom, I didn't grow up with hand sanitizers (that I don't personally think work). The old fashioned remedy of keeping yourself germ free comes from washing your hands with good old soap and water. But the key is teaching your children and grandchildren the PROPER way to do it.

I've added a little video with my grandson to demonstrate the right way.
