Teaching personal hygiene to children

Personal Hygiene is one of the most essential ways of protecting yourself as well as others against diseases. In addition to that, it is vital for general health and wellbeing. Furthermore, good hygiene also helps boost self-esteem with issues children tend to face in school for example, such as bad breath or poor body odor. It goes without saying that self-hygiene is an extremely important thing to be taught to children.
With that said, teaching anything to children does not usually prove to be the easiest of tasks, until we realize some simple secrets. Children are masters of imitation: they naturally mimic things they see and hear as they grow up. Therefore, some of the best ways are to lead by example and to maintain good hygiene. This article will outline some of the most important and fundamental tips in teaching your children about personal hygiene:
1. Start by teaching them about the importance of hygiene.

2. Introduce the concepts of germs & bacteria. Talk about consequences.

3. Promote personal hygiene as a form of wellness.

4. Practice hygiene as a family.

5. Talk about the pleasant smell and foul smell.

6. Establish personal hygiene as an everyday responsibility.

7. Set reminders.

8. Provide an incentive.

9. Be a good role model.
