Teach Kids to Flush and Wash – Every Time!

Kids and bathrooms.

As soon as kids are old enough to pee alone, we find ourselves calling out that most common sense of early parenting:

“Did you flush and wash??”

What surprises most parents (me included) is that we don’t feel confident enough to stop asking that of our 7 year old. Or even our 10 year old if they come back out too quickly. As a matter of fact, according to numerous studies, 11-15% of adults don’t wash their hands at all after using the bathroom.

Kids and hygiene.

Like it or not, parents are stuck drumming this habit into our kids. Like so many habits, our kids seem to resist hygiene on principal. But it can be taught! Try this easy trick to get your littlest ones in the habit now!

  1. This topic reminds me of the following true family story:
    My uncle was divorced when his daughter was quite young, so as a single dad he had some challanges. When his daughter started using the bathroom on her own he started asking: “Did you flush?” when she came out.
    One day the whole family went to the beach. My uncle went to the men’s room and my cousin stayed behind with the family. When her dad left the men’s room and was still quite a distance from us my cousin hollered out as loud as she could, “Did you flush?”. The surrounding beach-goers had a good laugh.
