Shoes and Handwashing

January 16, 2012 in Children's Health Education, News - Updates

I was sitting in the living room during our family Christmas vacation and my daughter was showing off her slip on shoes while bragging they were so very comfy. I noticed she handled them with ease and familiarity but to my chagrin she proceeded to touch her face.  “Ooo, wash your hands” I said, “where have your shoes been?”

She arrived on a flight from Tennessee and walked through the halls of one of our great NY airports.

Ooo, no matter how cute you think your shoes are and how often you put them on, please don’t forget where they have been. Wash your hands! Washing our hands is the most effective way to avoid germs and the illness they may carry. Please educate your children about proper hand washing. We can help….
