Recently I was at a birthday dinner where a mother shared her experience with lice. Both her sons had contracted lice at their school. I’ve heard this story from other parents whose children contract lice-or fleas-and infected the rest of the family. It made me curious: How can you keep your kids safe from germs at school? Also, how can you keep your self free from germs that your kids bring home from school?
No one can live in a bubble. I’ve invited Columbia University Medical Center Pediatric Specialist Dr. Clare Bush to join me September 28th to discuss how to keep both your kids and you safe from germs and illness this school season.
We’ll discuss the obvious (washing your hands and smart sanitation), the less obvious (what childhood diseases can adults contract from their kids?) and controversial (vaccinations: which ones should you get, at what age and why it matters).
