How to Protect Your Child from the Flu

This flu season is shaping up to be one of the worst this country has seen in a long time. I was so worried about Dean getting the flu because of all of his asthma, but when he actually got it he handled it much better than expected. I think this was because of three things.

  1. He got the flu shot.
  2. We took him to the hospital early, some might say too early, but he started Tamiflu right away.
  3. He got a steroid shot to help open up his lungs.

In doing some research, I found there isn’t too much we can do to protect our kids, which is the worst feeling ever, but I did find this helpful article that reminds parents about the basics.

  1. Get a flu shot
  2. Practice clean coughing
  3. Washing hands
  4. Staying healthy
  5. Keeping kids healthy once they are sick
