Proper Bathing
Keep a baby in a tub of water and see the delight with which it splashes around. But, once that baby grows up into a kid, then the water becomes anathema. So, if you have a kid who takes bath without any fuss, thank your stars. For those who are no so lucky, know that you cannot surrender to your kidís demand on this. No matter what, he/she must be given the daily wash, even if it involves turning the house into a war zone. Remember, bathing is a necessary hygiene that you cannot let your kid wriggle out, especially because kids are prone to get dirty. So, a complete shower is a must. For infants, you can use a wet cloth to wash the face, neck and bottom. Make sure that you use mild soap and shampoos during the process, as the skin of kids are very sensitive.

Timely Hand Wash

Hand washing is a hygiene that even most adults do away with. That is why it is all the more important that the habit must be imbibed into the kids early. Ask any doctor and he/she would tell you that the best way to prevent various common illnesses in kids is through keeping their hands clean, as the germs most often spreads through the hands. Teach the kids to first rinse their hands in warm water and then rub some soap on both the palm and back of the hands and in between fingers. Then, rinse the hands with water and dry them with a clean towel. Make the kids understand that they should wash their hands before and after every meal and after playing or coming from outdoors.

Nail Neatness
Nails form the repository of countless germs. This is why it is very important that you trim and clean the kidsí nails. This will also prevent the kids from scratching the skin with their nails and causing skin infections. Dedicate one day of the week for the nail neatness. Let your child know that he/she has to get his/her nails cleaned and tidy on that day. Also, at the time of washing the hands, make sure that your kid cleanses the nails as well.

Teeth Troubles
Proper dental hygiene routine is a must to avert all dental problems in future. Know that without this, there is no way in which tooth decay can be prevented. Dentistsí advise regular brushing at least two times a day to prevent bad breath and tooth decay in kids. However, apart from this, each time your kid pops in a candy stick or a chocolate bar, make sure he/she rushes to the washroom and gets the teeth cleaned. This should also be followed after having sweets. Teach your kids to brush and floss the teeth in a proper manner.

Hair Care
In kids, it happens that the hair is often the most neglected part of the hygiene. The hair must be kept clean and free of dirt. For this, the hair must be washed daily or once in two to three days. Kids, unlike adults, have higher chances of getting their hair dirty and spoiled; all thanks to the sweaty hours spent at the playground and the daily commutation to school. Also, chances of getting inflicted with lice and fungal infections are high for kids in school as they tend to meet and be with several other students, who might not be adhering to proper hygiene. As such, it is very important that as parents, you make sure that your child indulges in a hair care regimen. Massage the hair with effective oil and then rinse with a mild shampoo and water.
