Hand washing is an important skill to learn. This skill is particularly important for children, as children often touch more objects throughout the day than adults--and many of these objects end up in a child’s mouth. Fortunately, teaching your child the basics of hand washing and setting a good example can work wonders for keeping your children and your home germ free. Place a stool in front of the sink. If the child cannot reach the sink by themselves, place a stool in front of the sink to facilitate regular hand-washing practices. Look for a stool with rubber grips on the steps. When young children are involved, washing hands can get extremely messy, and you don’t want the child slipping on the step. The feet of the step should also be equipped with rubber to limit the risk of slipping or sliding across a slick floor.

It is is really important to teach your baby how to wash hands. And to my mind you and your child should do everything like this together!!! Firstly it would be pretty good to explain to your child why he should wash his hands. Tell him about the rules of hygiene. Although there are times when you do not wash your hands excusable, but in most cases this procedure is required. You might show your child how to wash his hands. Wet your hands with water, take the soap and lather hands. You can show how to lather hands, let him repeat the movement for you.
