Today I head back to the doctors with Delylah. As if having Pneumonia wasn’t enough she is sick again. Last week was her first week back to school. I waited to send her until she was all better. No coughing, no boogers, nothing. I knew if I sent her with a little bit of anything and she wasn’t completely better she would get sick again. All the kids at school are coughing, sniffling, not hand washing little kids. Sunday night rolls around and so does her 102° fever along with hallucinations. It was quite a fun night. She had the fever all day yesterday and it finally broke sometime in the night last night. It’s not just the fever though. It’s back to the boogers and coughing.
I blame the parents. I understand that your kids aren’t “that” sick and can go to school and you’re right. They probably should but you obviously aren’t teaching them proper hygiene. Let me help you out.
Wash your hands- Whether or not you sneezed or coughed in them. You are sick and should be washing them all the time. You touched something, you need to wash your hands.
Don’t be touching everything- Don’t touch everything and spread your germs everywhere. Touch only your own things and still, wash your hands.
Cough and sneeze into your arm, not your hand or just out in the open- Coughing and sneezing into your hands, that you use for everything is just a great way to spread your germs so everyone else gets your sickness. Let’s practice-put your arm over your face and cough. Congratulations! Now do that every time!
Use a tissue- Those boogers seeping out of your nose that you’re wiping with your hands and then spreading all over the desks and doors, ya that’s fabulous. Teach your kids to use a tissue. In fact, pack them their own tissues!
Besides not touching everything, Don’t touch ANYONE- Keep your hands to yourself. You don’t want your best friend getting sick do you? NO! So just don’t touch anything.
I know not everyone can just keep their kids home. I know some are afraid of having too many absences and getting into trouble with the school district and in other ways depending on their situation. But at least have some common courtesy and teach your kids some healthy tips so not everyone has to endure the sickness your kid has!
