TEACHING BY DEMONSTRATING
The news about salmonella in peanut butter and other foods sold at the market is alarming. At the same time, there is also a high incidence of dengue fever among patients confined at hospitals. This triggered me to educate my helper about the proper and systematic way to do the chores at home. I noticed that she is not cleaning daily the stove and is not thoroughly cleaning the kitchen. When I went outside at the washing area, I saw clothes stucked at the basin for about two days. I thougth it was time to educate her about the proper way to clean the kitchen and to systematicvally do the chores at home. As I have learned in my edcuation course, the best way to teach is to have a demonstration so I did the cleaning and washing the clothes with her. It was a good exercise for me, too. I hope helper can do things efficiently now. A clean house sends bacteria causing diseases away.
