Aren’t we supposed to be teaching them NOT to wipe their nose with their sleeves?
The CoughCover was created by a registered nurse, mother and grandmother who says she saw a need for something that would “help children manage their coughs, colds and runny noses and provide a convenient method for everyone to use good respiratory hygiene practices.”
We thought Kleenex and Puffs had it covered, but Michele Strocel thought otherwise. The CoughCover is made of a non-woven fabric coated in an anti-viral solution. It’s made to be slipped up on the sleeve or shoulder. It’s supposed to help keep those “green sleeves” at bay by giving the kids a place to wipe their nose. It’s also supposed to provide something to sneeze into so kids don’t get germs on their hands.
Again, whatever happened to a tissue? Or, I don’t know, washing your hands after you sneeze?
Because I can’t think of any adults who walk around with their arms coated in snot – if I do see one, I’ll make sure to keep my distance. Kids need to learn at some point to use their tissues and wash their hands. Giving them a crutch now, and a disgusting one at that (who wants to play with the kid whose got a snotty rag hanging off his arm?), and they might be the adult you’re giving a wide berth in twenty years!
