Wash your hands often
It's tough to keep your hands germ-free when you're sick. After all, we use our hands to shield a cough or act as an impromptu tissue when one isn't available. So not only should you wash your hands regularly, but make sure your kid washes his or her hands often, too. Encourage better follow-through by making a game out of it or introducing soaps in fun shapes or scents to make washing more enticing.
