What About The Little Ones? - 12/11/13

  If you've got children, this will certainly hit home.  Keeping their little hands clean and away from their nose and mouth goes a long way toward keeping them healthy.  I had an orthodontist appointment today and met my wife and son for lunch afterward.

  So we didn't have to do it in the middle of lunch, we ran the little man to the restroom.  On the way out of course we washed his hands.  I couldn't help but wonder why all restaurants don't make it easier for little people to use thier facilities or wash their hands afterward.  Some restaurants and other public places put some thought into a young person's ability to do those things but I think it's the exception rather than the rule.

  All I'm suggesting is a little more forethought, maybe even a regulation based on the size of an establishment requiring a urinal a little person can reach without help and a sink low enough for them to wash their hands in without laying on an often wet countertop to wash their hands. 

  There are certainly bigger issues but some things just ought to be, and in my mind this is one of them.
