Feeling Poorly

 

Thanks to the great folks at Kimberly-Clark for sponsoring this post. My comments, opinions, and love for soft facial tissues are my own.

A couple of weeks ago my older boy arrived home from school and said those words a mother never wants to hear, “mama, I don’t feel well.” Sure enough, just an hour later he was running a fever and was complaining of a sore throat. And, of course, as often happens, my younger boy got it, too, followed by my husband and then me. It wasn’t fun at all. First came the fever, the sore throat, the cough and then the runny nose which lasted for a week. We were sure glad to have those Kleenex boxes around!

That’s why I’m so pleased to be having this giveaway, because one lucky reader out there is going to be in good shape for the next round of sniffles.

Plus, did you know that Kleenex® Brand is the only facial tissue featuring Box Tops for Education? It has awarded $13 million to schools through the program since 2006!  Cool!!

My best tip is to have the kids wash their hands often. Even when they come home from school, the first thing I remind them to do, is wash their hands.
Thanks so much.

I send my kids to school with antibacterial hand wipes so they can clean their hands before snack and lunch. They usually remember.

I have my son eat one fruit of his choice in the morning to keep up his immune system. I also give him one packet of emergen-c when he is showing early symptoms of becoming sick.

Get them to wash their hands frequently and use hand sanitizer when they don’t have soap and water.

Hand washing is the most effective way to ward off illness. And lots of juices with vitamin C
