Normal children will not shut them
selves away from fresh air. But
those who have charge of them often
fail in their duty. This is especially
true at night Five hundred cubic
feet of space, about 8x8x8, is the need
of every child. Nothing will make up
for less space except open windows
close to the head of the bed.
Ill or diseased children are the only
ones who will of themselves stay in
. the house in the daytime.
Teeth should be clean and kept
clean and sound. Gentle brushing
with a soft brush two or three times
a day should be the rule. A healthy
child should have a full set of strong,
sound, well-placed teeth. If there is
a school dentist, take advantage of
all the aid he can give your child.
Study is the purpose of the school
and study requires much use of the
eyes. Light must be abundant and
from the right direction.
If the child thus guarded is not
comfortable in study, take him to a
competent oculist and have proper
glasses fitted.
Ears are almost as often defective
as eyes. Deafness is frequently only
detected when a child fails to hear
the instruction given to others. As a
result speech is limited and he is con
sidered stupid.
If a child has adenoids have them
removed. Do not delay. For you
cannot tell when a cold will start
trouble in such an obstructed ear and
permanent deafness result.
Moreover, adenoids and the accom
panying enlarged tonsils limit the
supply of fresh air which the child
can breath and deformity and mal
nutrition inevitably follow.
