A year’s plan lies in spring, and a day’s plan lies in the morning. For children, brushing their teeth and washing their faces is the first “work” of the day. This work is related to “face”, naturally very important. But there are a lot of children who don’t like to wash their faces, or even feel bored and afraid of washing their faces. Don’t worry, baby always protested, these moves may be useful!

I. correct order of face washing

When washing the baby’s face, the mother can first wet the soft little towel with water and then wring it dry, and then start to wipe the baby’s cheek. The eyes and forehead can be slightly wiped to avoid the illusion that the eyes will water. Do not cover the towel directly on the face, so that the child will not only feel uncomfortable, but also have no sense of security.

The power of idols

The children’s imitation is very strong, so the mother can tell the children some related stories, for example, the bear picture book series will tell the children that the first thing they get up in the morning is to wash their faces. Every day when the child gets up, the mother can ask the child “baby, the mother has forgotten what the first thing is to do when the cub gets up in the morning”. The memory of the child is quite good, and they are usually very proud to tell “wash face”. The mother can then ask “is the bear very good, will wash their own face, the baby is also when the good baby.”.

3. Let children take face washing as a game

Every morning, the mother can ask the child to wash the face of her favorite doll or small toy first, and then she can say to the baby, “the baby is really powerful, and she will wash the face of the doll. Now the baby’s face is washed clean, does the baby have to wash the face?”. Some children don’t like washing their faces because they are afraid of water coming into their eyes. Mothers can say to their children, “let’s play a little game. Mothers say one, two, three, close your eyes. Babies can close their eyes as soon as the little train passes by. Babies can open their eyes.”.

IV. diversion

Children’s attention is very easy to be diverted. When washing their faces, they can let them sit on a small bench, let them choose their favorite little towels, and then wipe their faces while telling them some topics of interest to divert their attention. For example, when their mother was a child, she didn’t like washing her face, and was laughed at as a big cat.

After the elimination of external causes, children may still not like washing face, which requires some methods to promote children’s interest in washing face, and gradually develop the habit of washing face sooner or later. The common sense about what health habits children need to cultivate is still in the process of updating. Please continue to pay attention to this website
