    Are you actually for real!???? Let your kids be kids, mud play is soooo much fun! All through summer ds gets his cars trucks diggers and the hose and plays for hours in dirt. I just hose him down dru him off and all good (he has a bath and washes his hair every night). I don't understand why you feel self respect and cleanliness would be compromised by play??? Im all for teaching kids to wash their hands when they use the bathroom and before eating and using manners but my goodness not allowed to get dirty when playing?! Out of interest what do your children do outside? And camping with you must be a hoot!!

    I should have explained myself better.
    I understand experts believe dirt is good. I meant the article as a whole annoys me because people who don't understand allergies read it and think kids have allergies because parents are clean freaks.
    The amount of comments I have had implying DD allergies are due to something I did or didn't do is infuriating.
    Just a bug bear of mine.

    You need to pray to the public toilet gods that your toilet will
    a) have a toilet lid or b) a hook on the back of the door to hang a bag.
    The lack of either or both of this makes the toilet changing juggle incredibly difficult, especially with swimming and trying to keep the wet stuff away from the dry stuff.

    You then need to attempt the pants-changing dance routine which involves keeping your feet in your shoes (thongs are ideal) and not touching the toilet floor when taking off and putting on undies and pants.

    This part of the toilet-changing routine is most high-risk for undie dropping and must be attempted with the most delicate care. It doesn't matter how much of a rush you are, you must attempt this part calmly and slowly.

    Fair enough - these would be reasonable scenarios. In fact now that you've mentioned it I have used public showers at camping grounds a number of times and attempted to get dressed without my clothes touching the floor but that was 99% down to not wanting them to get wet from the puddle on the floor than anything else.

    I got my period at 11, and it certainly wasn't due to mud :what:

    Wow. Lots of comments about mud play.

    Mud play has nothing to do with acne or puberty. It's playing in mud. It's great for sensory development, imagination. We are building a house and the kids are having a ball playing in the mud when we visit the site. I'm trying to work out where we will have. A section for the kids to demolish when the building work is finished. My youngest plays mud pies at child care. My SIL who is a primary school teacher believes playing in mud is a necessary part of childhood.
    I have great memories of playing with mud. Mud pies, and making grooves and playing with cars through it. I did not go through puberty young. I did not have acne.
    I'm sure I read somewhere that children playing in mud have a healthier immune system than children who are not exposed to mud, germs and bacteria which inhabit the earth. Not all germs are bad. Don't ask me for a reference. I read this years before I ever contemplated children and before I realised i needed peer reviewed links to chat on BH 😆

    What was that thread we had in here a while back about people going at it in bathrooms? Forget what it's called but that could result in undies on the floor...

    Me too. When it's 'that time of the month' and I have a used tampon I wrap it in toilet paper before putting it in the sanitary bin. If others are doing the same and aren't as 'careful' as me then .... Let's just say I don't want that toilet paper touching my toosh.
