Use the Lockdown to teach your kids interesting ways of treating common diseases

By May 5, 2020 Skidos
Children at the age of 3- to 4 have entered the wonderful world of language and imagination that empowers them to explore their world through words, action, & fantasy. It may take some patience and perseverance, & of course, a lot of reminders, but you can teach your kids habits that will help them stay healthy & keep germs at bay.
 
 “Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will help them stay healthy & keep germs at bay”                                                                  –  Albert Einstein
 
As new incentives, video games, & online learning games are developed every now & then. There are a few hundred options out there. Children might gain cognitive skills from using technology where they once got it from acting out situations in play.
 
Studies say that imaginative Role Play is a crucial element of early childhood development.
 
So, here we go. At the time when the world is fighting the pandemic, we teach our kids the quick tips of treating a few common diseases via a learning game – Skidos Doctor Games

1. Treat the flu 

 Kids are generally exposed to new types of viruses each year. Viruses cause mild respiratory illness leaving symptoms like fever, cold and cough, & weakness. In our interactive learning Doctor Game, a kid learns the use of 4 things – the thermometer, cough syrup & tonic, use of clean tissues to blow the nose & bin into the dustbin, nasal spray to open the clogged nose and finally a Throat Spray, an antiseptic that kills infectious airborne viruses

2. Cure Ears 

 We have often heard parents complain about their child getting an ear infection which can cause earaches and trouble in hearing or sleeping. In Skidos’s Doctor Games, your child can choose a character of her choice to role-play with. She can diminish the suffering of the cute animated character by first cleaning its ears with cotton balls & then pouring ear drops in each ear to kill bacteria and fungus. Job done!

3. Take care of teeth

Cavities are one of the most common persistent diseases of childhood in the United States. While your child would resist going to a dentist, it’s ideal to have him play an online doctor game on Skidos that effortlessly shows how the cavities are filled and a crooked tooth is removed by injecting anesthesia into the gums. The game plays with the child’s psychology &promotes a preschooler to brushing her teeth properly twice a day just to avoid painful doctor visits.

 

4. Get an X-ray 

Broken bones may seem like a normal part of an active childhood. Tiny daredevils
love to kick things & often bring home a swollen lymph. What’s interesting about Skidos Doctor Games is that it displays the state of the injury through a cute character. Your child can visualize & acknowledge the pain of the patient seeing the swelling. She will then treat the character by first examining the bones under an X-ray machine before fixing it & putting a plaster over it to avoid bone movement. Upon completing the task, the game finishes with an applaud.

5. Clean the wounds 

Signs that your child is growing & learning when you see her hands, elbows, and knees bruised. It’s absolutely normal for kids to fall & get hurt. A parent must teach a
child how to sanitize the wound & give basic first aid. The online interactive doctor game teaches a kid to first clean the affected area, spray and antiseptic & apply a band-aid on the wound. & believe it or not, you can even make it fun.
