One of the preventive measures being implemented by most schools to halt the spread of dengue in school campuses is to enforce students especially girl students to wear white shirt and jeans to school. Boys have no problem with the rule because they are already using school trousers everyday. Light colored clothing is advisable to drive away mosquito. By and large, dengue-carrying mosquitoes are attracted to dark clothes as they are attracted to dark areas in our house. They lurk in the dimly lit to dark corners inside our house, so be wary of that.
Aside from wearing jeans and shirts, I let my kids apply mosquito repellent before they go to school. As soon as they left for school, I spray insect killer in every corner of the house. But of course, I’m cautious of the possible breeding sites of Aedes Aegptyi – the specie of mosquito that breeds and transmits the fatal dengue virus. No breeding sites, no dengue. The minimal or ignorable breeding site is where the deadly mosquito most probably lurks.
Moms like me whose kids have contracted dengue fever in the past have more than hundred reasons to exercise precautionary measures.
We consider our children the best gifts that we have ever received and as much as we can, we provide for them to the best of our abilities and give them the best of all things, or at least, the best that our hard-earned money can afford us, food, toys, clothes, books, education, to name a few. If we could we would not let even a tiny, unsuspecting insect to harm them and would go the extra miles to safeguard their well-being and safety. And if truth be told, this early, you have been asking around about term insurance and educational plans and thinking of getting one for your precious little one. Of course, you would not want to put anything to chance and would simply stop at nothing to be sure your little one is getting the finest.
You want your kids to be physically active this summer? Why not introduce them to local games that we used to love as a child. Do you still remember playing luksong-tinik or luksong-baka, patintero, tumbang preso? You can teach similar outdoor games and new indoor activities to your kids to keep them busy and divert their attention to playing computer and other electronic gadget all day.
Exposing them to active playtime is also instilling in them the value of physical activity as they grow older. When a person is active they don’t have to worry about weight loss pills that work because losing weight is never a problem anymore.
