on Thursday, July 10th, 2014

As any parent knows, there’s a bit of danger associated with very young children trying to wash their hands on their own.  When my daughter was very young, we had to keep a footstool in the bathroom so she could reach to wash her hands – so there’s a falling danger.  There’s also a scaldingRead More…
