As my mother, who lives with us, was going thru chemotherapy it was imperative that she not be exposed to infectious diseases. We were trying to encourage my three and a half year old to wash her hands frequently and not to touch public surfaces and then put her hands in her mouth. We used both reminders and rewards, as well as explaining the dangers that germs could pose for her Ammy, yet nothing seemed to work; it seemed like every time we turned around she was touching things and putting her hands in her mouth. Then we watched “Germs & Your Health”, by Bill Nye the Science Guy. My daughter was so absorbed with everything that she learned from Bill Nye that now she reminds us how to protect ourselves and others from germs. Bill uses various experiments to visually demonstrate the spread of germs in a way that even preschoolers can understand. I highly recommend this DVD.
