but over-protective isnt good at all. instead will harm the kid . either get too spoilt, or in future, when face problems, easily stressed etc. you have to fall then you will learn how to get up. too use to smooth path, abit of bump, also dont know how to cross over..
as for hygience part. if you over-clean. body immune system will get very weak. do you know that human body actually very 'shen qi' one. those harmless germs and bacteria and virus, our body can fight them ourself. for eg, you kana flu virus lvl 1, you dont go see doc, you ownself get well. next time must have flu virus lvl 2 then will affect you. even if you get flu virus lvl 1 you also wont fall sick . and if you abit abit only go see doc, take antibiotics. your body will only rely on antibiotics to fight viruses. i know a friend, since young fall sick always go doctor. always take antibiotics. and now, normal antibiotics cant help her . she needs stronger dosage. for me, cause young time financial not good and mama not the kind who belive in seeing doc. so both me and my bro dont go doctor at all when we get fever or cough or wateva. our body till now like damn strong . play in rain shower cold water also wont fall sick.
