How I ensure my sports lover son stays fit and active this monsoon
“Mom, you never made me do.”
“Huh, I never called you or you didn’t want to do?”
This is the scene at my home every year. The school is going to open after summer vacations. And I have to make them finish their school work and do a refresher course on hygiene for them.
Monsoons start and infections come along
Hygiene is the most important during monsoons. We can definitely fight the germs if we take all the necessary precautions. Aadidev is in his 6th year and already a cricket champion at school. His coach wants him to practice after school in the evenings. Though his coach takes care of his game, I take care of his health as a player is able to perform only when he is healthy and sound.
Some precautions I follow that have always helped me:
· Always keep a sanitizer handy whenever they are out.
· Give juices and water to quench their thirst in between the game.
· Avoid giving them finger foods because they will never remember to clean their hands before eating.
· During monsoons they come back home all soaked in rain. At that time, my first step is to give them a bath with few drops of liquid antiseptic to disinfect them.
· Their wet clothes should also be washed in this liquid antiseptic and dried under the sun.
· After every meal, they should be reminded to wash their hands
· Keep liquid hand wash at every washing area like the kitchen and every bathroom.
The habit of good sanitation has come to me from my parents and we trust Dettol and we have been using it in our family for generations.
Any sport is important for fitness and it should be enjoyed and definitely should not be a burden. I only trust in the best for my child’s hygiene safety, what about you?
