Parents should ensure kids wash their hands well to prevent these warriors from entering their kids’ bodies. Avoid getting your kids in direct contact with pets and animals. Animal fur sometimes contain maggots which are very harmful. Wash the child’s hand immediately when he touches pets or animals. Avoid tagging kids along when you visit a sick patient.

These are the main surfaces on which germs thrive. Keeping your house clean and tidy is the best way to be germ-free. Keep your bathrooms clean and hygienic. Germs usually live on toilet seats. Ensure you clean your WC regularly. Keep replacing your bathroom utilities like towels. Monsoon is the time when your child is more prone to falling sick and falling prey to viral infection. Mosquitos breed in water puddles formed due to rains and can cause malaria and dengue. Ensure your kids wash their feet and hands every time they get back home after play. During winter, cold and cough is unpreventable. Ensure your child does not get in touch with a person down with cold.
