Disable Mum Re-learns to Style Daughter’s Hair for School.
Shanice Rayner, 22, from Essex, Britain, was first diagnosed with scoliosis, syringomyelia and chiara malformation since she was 6, and she completely lost the use of her left hand in February this year.
Her left hand’s numbness, which doctor has attributed to muscle wastage, means she was unable to style hair for her three-year-old daughter Ayshea Rayner for school. Shanice can’t stand the thought of her daughter going to school with messy hair.
Despite her disability, Shanice is still trying to style Ayshea’s hair into a neat bun using her right hand and mouth.
As a parent, we always want the best for our children, there are some essential life skills all parents should teach their kids, which will help them better cope with society and grow into a responsible, respectful adult.
Teach kids to comb or style their hair.
There is no “right age” for a child to start combing or brushing their own hair, it supposed to be a natural process for a child showing interest in doing it herself. When combing girl’s hair, encourage her to do the same with a doll’s hair.
Teach kids to wash their hands.
Washing hands is a basic skill for kids to master, and also one of the best effective way to prevent germs that may cause illness and keep our kids from getting sick. As a parent, we can help our kids cultivate a good habit of washing hands through our words and deeds.
Teach kids to brush their teeth.
More than 40% of children have cavities by the time they enter kindergarten, teeth decay is still the biggest health issue affecting their daily life. As the saying goes, monkey see, monkey do. Keep a family brushing schedule and make it a habit to avoid teeth decay and improve their oral health.
Teach kids to go to the bathroom.
When it comes to potty-training, there are more similarities than differences in toilet training. The process always takes time and patience. It’s also important to start this training when the time is right for your child.
