Why is it important to teach children about
Germs spread quickly, and can affect anyone
they come in contact with. Even if a
cold germ only makes you a little bit sick, the person you spread it to may get
worse. A sick child means time off work,
co-pays, and cold medications. It’s best
to stop the germs before they spread.
What can I do to teach children to stop
First show them the Germy Wormy DVD and
picture book! Also, the CDC recommends
washing hands often with warm water and soap, coughing and sneezing into your
sleeve or a tissue, and discarding the tissue immediately after use. Staying home when sick, and refraining from
sharing drinks and foods are also highly recommended.

successfully teach children about germs—what germs do, and how to prevent
them. Germy Wormy advocates all the CDC
recommendations in a fun and engaging way.
