When we enter motherhood, we often find ourselves in a continuous search for what truly is the best thing to do for our little ones. They depend on us for everything from the food they eat to the rules on how they should behave. Every parent has their own unique style of parenting. While one parent might be alright with their kids going out and playing in the dirt, the other parent may not allow it. There is enough logic and reasoning for both takes on this issue. But which one is right?
The answer, in short, is that dirt is good - for the mind, body, and soul. As you may already know, the sun is the only source of Vitamin D which helps them absorb the calcium from milk and other foods. Children should be allowed to play freely in the sun and in the mud. That dirt will only help strengthen their immune system. Think of it this way - if the body doesn’t know what kind of germs are out there, how will it be able to prepare itself to fight them?
Are You Scared Of Letting Your Kids Play With Dirt?
Don’t be. Dirt is not only good for building your child’s immunity, it is also good for their mental health. Kids should be allowed to play outside to be able to learn and explore the world around them. Playing outside regularly with other children will help them build their creative, social, and physical skills.
Improved creativity will make them more adaptable and also help build problem-solving skills. Social skills will enable them to make more friends and in the long run, it will help improve their mental health. Their improved physical skills will help them maintain a healthy lifestyle when they grow up.
The children who spend time outside cycling, running, or playing a new sport would not only be healthier and happier but they would also be able to perform better at school. Playing outside may sometimes involve getting dirty and that is okay. The number of benefits trump the drawbacks of getting dirty.
Just make sure they wash their hands right after they get home. Godrej Protekt happyfoam variant was launched specially for kids who are fussy about washing their hands. The foam is added just to make washing their hands a fun and healthy habit. It is mixed with air and water making it milder than the other soaps.
Haven’t Been Letting The Kids Around Pet Animals?
If you have been sceptical about getting pets or letting your kids play with pets for the fear of spreading germs and unwanted bacteria, then we have news for you. Children who are raised with pets are proven to be happier and more confident about themselves. They will be able to develop their emotional quotient by becoming more empathetic, and compassionate.
