Back to School gives me anxiety. I am a self-proclaimed germaphobe and worrying is my weakness. Not the best trait for a mother of four young children in the public school system.
While we cannot keep all germs away and we cannot avoid colds, flu, lice, they will capture us when we least expect it. Today I am sharing my worries and some solutions that you may find helpful too.
Stop Worrying About Back to School
Be Kool When A Cold Strikes
I cringe when I see a sniffle and sweat when my kid’s cough (okay anyone’s kid). The truth is getting a cold is a part of life. Germs happen, colds happen.
One of the hardest battles is when the kids catch a fever. Rising body temperatures cause extreme discomfort, pain and sleeplessness nights for both mom and children.
My mother taught me to sit up and routine a cold, wet cloth over my children’s body. I remember mom by my side doing the same for me when I was a wee one. It works, as long as you can stay awake.
My Advice – Be Kool
Be Kool Kids non-medicated cooling gel sheets, offer up to 8 hours of cooling comfort. They are safe to use in combination with medications. Since Be Kool does not require any refrigeration, they are perfect for travel. Be Kool pads decorated with your child’s favorite Disney friends will reduce skin temperature by up to 4 degrees.
You can find Be Kool Kids at participating stores of Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart Canada, Target Canada and other retail chains.
Clean with Ease
I am confident in saying most of us Mother’s dislike cleaning. The fact is, to keep those nasty germs away we need to keep our main living spaces clean. Pair you best cleaning formula with Scrub Daddy, and you’ll be smiling.
A sponge with a smiley face has to put you in the mood.
No longer will you have to put a little or a lot of elbow grease behind any of your cleaning. Scrub Daddy is almost like magic when it comes to a sponge. His scratch-free FlexTexture material is one-of-a-kind. Use your Scrub Daddy in cold water for firm scrubbing power. Use you Scrub Daddy in warm water for a soft and compressible sponge.
He works like magic on whatever surface he touches in your home, car, boat or cottage.
Now if only Scrub Daddy came with a maid!

Prevent Every Mother’s Nightmare
LICE – How can I hate one work so much?
You cannot unlive the vision you saw once you’ve seen lice running wild throughout your children’s hair. YUCK!
Instead of talking treatment, let’s talk prevention!
Lice Shield, a line of hair care products that help repel lice while gently cleansing and conditioning hair. Since that first time three years ago’ we’ve kept Lice Shield handy.
Don’t think you’re children are invisible to lice!
A lice infestation can happen at any moment, and it’s one of the hardest things to control as a parent. Avoiding this burden by using Lice which is free of harmful pesticides. Lice Shield is specially formulated with a blend of essential oils – such as citronella, eucalyptus, and rosemary – that have been scientifically demonstrated to help repel lice.
You can find Lice Shield at participating stores of Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart Canada, and other retail chains.
A Kiss Changes It All
Oral Hygiene is important. Not only to keep your breath smelling clean and kissable but to keep bacteria away.
Along with new clothes, shoes, I like to buy all our children new fresh toothbrushes for Back to School. Replacing your toothbrush is another important step to take if you want to fight germs. They suggest replacing your toothbrush every three months. I also replace toothbrushes after colds or the flu hits our home.
Our kids love Carry Clean toothbrushes because they have a silicone suction on the bottom. Allowing them to stand straight up on the counter tops. Plus, since Carry Clean Kids come with covers germs are kept away.
You can find Carry Clean for kids at participating stores of Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart Canada, and other retail chains.
Walk With Confidence
Back to School is stressful, exhausting and that causes your immune system to run low.
When your immune system is running low, a cold sore could strike at any time. Causing humiliating and painful sore front and center for everyone to see.
