Year after year, when my kids go back to school, it often means back to coughing, sniffling and sneezing. Being in such close quarters with other kids, sharing pencils and touching door knobs all lead to the back-to-school bugs. It’s been only a few weeks into the school year, and the sniffles have already started. No matter if your kids are in preschool or elementary school, the back-to-school bugs are simply inevitable. Read on and check out the video below for five tips every parent should know about treating common kid illnesses.

Being One Step Ahead with KnowYourOTCs.org

How many times have your children come to you in the middle of the night with a fever, chest congestion or running nose? Before it happens this school season, be proactive by educating yourself on some of the basics. It’s important to learn how to treat a fever confidently by safely dosing your child.

Is that runny nose from allergies or a cold? It can be challenging to tell the difference. Parents can actually learn how to help distinguish between colds and allergies, and get important reminders on age restrictions before administering allergy medicines or cough and cold medicines to young kids. Be confident you are making smart, informed choices before treating your child’s symptoms and learn why reading the Drug Facts label is a critical step before offering an over-the-counter (OTC) medicine to your kids. For all this, and more tips on how to treat your family with care all year-long, visit KnowYourOTCs.org.

In this quick video created by my favorite parents “In The Know,” we talk about how real parents deal with back to school germs effectively. ENJOY!

Coming into contact with the back to school bugs is almost inevitable no matter how healthy your child is. The lurking unwanted germs expose kids to the sniffles, sneezes and everything in between. Instead of being panicked, as their mom I choose to be prepared. Reading and understanding the drug facts label and talking to our pediatrician may not prevent germs, but it can certainly make me a more informed parent, equipped with the knowledge and know how of properly administering OTC medicines. While the kids are back to doing their homework, mom is back to doing hers! To learn more about back to school germs, I encourage you to visit KnowYour OTCs.org.
