The First in Biological Warfare

I just wonder what's with kids these days, they would avoid brushing their teeth or bathing if they could.  I had a friend whose 16 year daughter who unashamedly asked her mother if she could skip bathing one day.   She just spent a whole day in school and was sweaty and stinky.  What's more... she's a girl!

My Sage would cheat and not brush his teeth in the morning, then again not sure if he does brush his teeth in the evening when I told him so.  He said what's the point when you are going to dirty it by eating anyway!!!   

One time I caught him .. he said he had brushed but his toothbrush was dry.  Another time, he simply showered his toothbrush as evidence that he had brushed.  Third world nations are not so lucky, they do not even have enough water to drink or wash themselves.  Here we have the luxury of water and soap gels ... why have we taken hygiene for granted?

I asked if he knew how much bacteria would accumulate in his mouth and body if he does not maintain Basic Hygiene.  One should ask the Tyrannosaurus Rex that lived millions of years ago!  They were the first creatures to develop biological warfare... one bite and you're dead from the infection of that bite.  The bacteria in their mouth was so potent.

Was he trying to recreate that long lost weaponry!

  1. Seems like kids are "too busy" to worry about hygiene.

  3. Perhaps the schools should get back to the basics too, they are so into online even the kids have forgotten the simple offline stuff.

    This brushing-is-not-important seems to a familiar phenomenon with the boys too.. ugghh.!

  4. I had the devil of a time getting one of my daughters, who was probably 8 or 9 at the time, to brush her teeth until one day one of her peers told her she had yellow teeth. That's all it took. Why did it take that to make her brush more often? I don't know
    take care!

  8. my daughter went through that stage and I know I went through that stage when I was her age or younger. Now, I can't understand how I could stand going to bed uncleaned. There is a stage for everything and I think when we are kids, hygine is not a priority because we dont have a clear idea of what the feature is.

  10. Basic Hygiene is a must! If parents don't have enough common sense to teach their children then it must be taught in our schools.

  11. Yikes, you have just described my grandson! If left to his own devices, he would never brush his teeth or shower at all!
