Talking Sense When It Comes To Looking After Your Kid

Talking Sense When It Comes To Looking After Your Kid

The day you signed on to become a parent is the day you signed on to protect your kid from all the harm you possibly can. You’re like Batman protecting Gotham City, except you don’t get to wear a cool outfit and Gotham is in fact just your child. Still, despite these slight nuances, your responsibilities are no less important. In fact, if anything, they probably way slightly heavier on your shoulders.

Of course, protecting your kid from all the harm you possibly can leave it rather open and infinite. Basically, there is a lot for us to write about and just as much for you to read. So, in an attempt to be as efficient as possible, we have focused on three of the most important areas of a child’s health: their eyes, teeth and ears.

The reason we protect these three is pretty simple: they’re important to your child now and they’ll remain important to them forever. So, without further ado, here are some simple ways you can absorb your parental responsibilities and protect your kid on these three fronts:

 

Sight Is Alright

Our eyes are so precious, which is why we need to make sure we are doing all we can to protect them. Luckily, this can be achieved by just following your gut and common sense. For example, if it is sunny outside then have your kid wear sunglasses, and if they are going skiing, mountain biking or swimming, then hand them a pair of appropriate goggles. When it gets dark, make sure you turn the lights on, especially if they tend to read a lot. Of course, if your child complains about sore eyes, blurry vision or the fact they can’t read or see certain things at a certain distance, then it is worth visiting an optician and getting their opinion.

Bite On This

You don’t need to visit the family dentist to know how important it is to look after our teeth, and why teaching your kids good habits is so crucial to the health of theirs. The only way you can teach them good habits, though, is if you know what constitutes good habits, which starts with brushing after breakfast and the last thing before bed. It is also worth noting that brushes with soft bristles do least amount damage to teeth and that three minutes is the recommended amount of time to spend brushing away. The other thing that is worth teaching your young whippersnapper is how to floss, although you should only do this if you have been shown how to do properly by your family doctor first.
