Our target: We’re focusing on helping our kids feel good about themselves by talking to them about good clean hygiene and having a positive attitude.
Team Up! Try this simple idea to help your child want to talk.
Smell Test: Gather a jar of pickles, a bottle of shampoo, a bottle of mustard, and a bar of soap from around the house. Take the lids off all of them and line them up on a counter. Go blindfold your child and bring them to the counter where you have these opened items set up. Have your child smell the pickle juice and the mustard first. Ask them if they would like to sit next to a classmate that smelled that way. Now have your child smell the shampoo and the soap. Ask the same question. Now that you have their attention, it’s time to talk about good hygiene and feeling good about ourselves.
