What To Do To Keep Kids From Getting Sick

It happens all to often, our kids come home from school or daycare sick and a few days later everyone else in the house has the sniffles too.

Not to fret, there are some ways to beat bacteria and stop the spread of sickness.

Doctors are recommending a few things, we've all head this one before, wash your hands.

Dr. Christina Urena says, "I think hand washing is the biggest thing you can do as any parent or any health care provider for your child."

Next, throw away old pacifiers, they hold lots of germs, keep your sheets clean, were not the only one sleeping in them, thousands of germs are too.

Finally take a look at our children's daycare centers and the ratio of children to teachers. The ratio of 5 children to 1 teacher has shown to be the best to prevent the spread of disease.

    ITS STARTS WITH THE PARENTS. THEY NEED TO STAY HOME WITH SICK KIDS AND STOP MAKING THE JOB FIRST PRIORITY. IF KIDS GET SICK WHILE IN YOUR CARE, THEY NEED TO PICK THEM UP, WHEN YOU CALL THEM, NOT WHEN THE WORK DAY IS DONE. PARENTS OF SICK KIDS DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW MANY LIVES ARE AFFECTED.
