Ask Doc G | Bathroom Hygiene for Kids

kids and bathroom hygiene

Kids and the bathroom. UGH.

If you’re a parent, you probably spend a good part of your day asking mundane (and annoying questions) like:

Did you flush the toilet?

Did you wash your hands?

Did you turn off the light?

Did you remember not to put the cat in the toilet? (that’s another post)

So, how do you teach proper bathroom hygiene starting at an early age with the kids without being a complete nag? Well, our very own Doc G has come up with a great way to remind the kiddos to perform all the steps in the process to help keep the family relatively germ free and healthy? (You’ll kick yourself for not thinking of this before!)
