Life Skills for Kids

Life skills are valuable lessons kids will use throughout their lifetime. Your kids are never too young to begin learning about health and hygiene. In our hectic day-to-day shuffle, we're always telling our kids to take a bath, brush their teethwash their hands.

At the end of 2019, a new type of coronavirus began making people sick with flu-like symptoms. The illness is called coronavirus disease-19 — COVID-19 for short. The virus spreads easily and has now affected people in many countries.  People can catch coronavirus from others who have the virus. This happens when an infected person sneezes or coughs, sending tiny droplets into the air. These can land in the nose, mouth, or eyes of someone nearby, or be breathed in.  People also can get infected if they touch an infected droplet on a surface and then touch their own nose, mouth, or eyes. 

The best ways to protect yourself and your family are:

  • Keep your family home and away from others as much as possible.
  • Avoid people who are sick. COVID-19 may be contagious before a person has any symptoms. So avoid large gatherings and busy places until the outbreak is under control.
  • Try to stay at least 6 feet (2 meters) away from other people.
  • Wash your hands well and often. Wash for at least 20 seconds with soap and water or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Teach your kids to do the same.
