    lol I like the "do the elephant when you cough" lol.

    Honestly I forget to remind him and I'm sure he'd forget. I'm not lazy. I'm tired.

    I try to, whether they remember is another thing. DD1 at least knows when her hands are full to put her head down and try to cough into herself, if that makes sense.

    I see little kids all the time sitting, they cough, wipe their nose and put it all over the tables and rails and it's like, eeew lovely.

    Yes I get DS to cough into the inside of his elbow so that his germs aren't all over his hands.

    I always tell my kids to cough into their elbow, sometimes they forget - as kids do.

    Oh yeah, I get that, but this kid was just full on coughing all over the place. It was SO gross.

    Yes, even my 2yr old son covers his mouth, if he forgets I gently remind him. My eldest who is almost 5 always covers his mouth, it;s just habit now.

    yes ... and to turn away from people, food, or table, when coughing.

    A 4yo still isn't that effective at covering their mouth, but can usually manage to turn away.
