When it comes to your child’s health and safety; you don’t want to take that for granted.  The rainy season is in full force, it brings some cool relief to our body and mind from the hot scorching sun. But, it also bring along humidity, mosquitoes, seasonal diseases, making your school child more susceptible to illness during this time. Some common problems during the rainy season include malaria, joint and muscle pain, cholera, etc. While it’s not possible to completely get rid of these, as a parent; you can still take a few steps to keep your baby safe and healthy. Here are some health and safety tips on how to keep everyone in the family healthy and safe during these very rainy months.

  1. Prepare rain gears: including an umbrellahooded raincoat and waterproof shoes or boots, as the kids go to school, to lower the chances of getting soaked when caught in a downpour. Children, may catch cold after being exposed to the cool breeze that often accompanies rain showers. Don’t be caught unprepared, visit our website or step into the nearest school kits store – we are usually stocked with basic rain gears.
  2. Take a warm shower right after getting drenched: (but not in the midst of a thunderstorm). This helps stabilizes the cold temperature brought by the rains, helping the body return to a normal temperature after drying off and getting dressed.
  3. Teach children about basic health and safety around lightning and thunder: The rule of thumb is that, if they can hear thunder, it’s time to head indoors, especially if they are swimming and even if it hasn’t started to rain. Also, avoid open areas, such as playing fields; isolated tall objects like trees and light posts; and metal objects such as fences and clotheslines. Wait at least 30 minutes after the last observed lightning strike or thunder to resume outdoor activities.
  4. Be aware of your drinking water sources: Water-borne diseases are very common during the rainy season. Be cautious of potentially contaminated sources, hence the need to give your kids water in water bottles when they set out to school. Get the best deals on water bottles here.
  5. Watch out for stagnant water: which is the prime breeding ground for mosquitoes. Dengue Fever, a potentially deadly mosquito-borne disease is most rampant during the rainy season. Regularly empty out still water sources, such as planter saucers and trays, pet water bowls, inflatable pools and decorative urns, around the home and in the garden.
  6. Avoid walking in floodwaters: especially when barefoot. It may be fun for kids but beware of leptospirosis, a bacterial disease that is spread by floods containing urine and other bodily fluids of infected animals, including dogs and rodents. Also, clean or disinfect toys that have been contaminated by flood water before allowing children to resume playing with them.
  7. Keep hands clean: Common cold symptoms can escalate during the rainy season. To keep everyone safe, clean hands regularly and always bring a hand sanitizer when you are out and about. Also, make it a habit to wash the hands and feet of your kids when they return home from school, especially after contact with rain or flood waters.
