Mom's Greatest Hits

As a mother to a four year old boy, I can't help but constantly tell him to go to the bathroom and wash his hand before and after he eats. He is also getting tired of me telling him to wash it again after he used the bathroom. It is very important for us to do it especially our children because wherever they go germs follow them for they touch everything without understanding of what germ is and how it can badly affects our health. I also ask him the following stuffs below aside from washing his hands. These hits are according to Quality Health:

As it turns it, it might be Mother, not Father, who knew best.

Wash your hands. Washing your hands is one of the best ways to prevent illness and stop the spread of germs, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Be sure to cleanse thoroughly with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds every time.
Button up. How many times did your mom tell you to button your coat or zip up your jacket as a kid? She had a good reason: Cold weather stresses the immune system, making you more susceptible to infection.
Eat your vegetables. Numerous studies have confirmed that a diet rich in vegetables can strengthen your immune system and reduce your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, obesity, diabetes, and even some cancers.
Turn off the TV. Studies have shown that there's a direct link between TV watching and low literacy rates, obesity, and a sedentary lifestyle. Some experts also believe that TV promotes violent behavior and high-risk activities.
Stop touching your face. Not only does touching your face increase your risk of getting sick; it can also lead to acne, no matter how old you are. When you touch your face, the bacteria on your hands transfers to the new surface. From there, bacteria settle in your pores and create blemishes.
