Let your kids play in the sand and get dirtyPlaying in the sand or mud is one of the happiest moments for the kids. But nowadays the entire scenario has changed. When I went for a walk near the beach, I saw a kid who was excited to play in the sand but that kid's mother didn't allow her kid to touch the sand, instead she asked her kid to play with her mobile phone. Most of the children of this generation are fond of video games and mobile phones but when you take kids to a park or a beach, they love to play in the sand or roll in the grass. Even if the kids have interest to play in the sand, some parents are not allowing their kids to play in the sand. In the modern world, computers, mobile phones and video games have replaced the utmost joy of playing in the mud.
Is playing in the sand bad for a child's health? I don't think so, because researchers have claimed that letting the kids to play in the dirt will keep them healthy. Allowing the kids to play in the sand or mud will boost the immune system of the kid, relieves stress, make the kids happier, develops brain and improves cognitive skills, make the kids physically and mentally active, lessen dust allergies, asthma and wheezing. Most importantly, the kids can easily connect to the nature and have a strong bonding with the outside world.
Playing games in mobile phones and computers have many disadvantages and is also bad for children's health. Playing in sand is far better than playing with gadgets. So, instead of worrying about the germs and infection, let your kids to play in the sand and get dirty.
