Just wondering if you DS or Dh wash their hands after going to the toilet for a pee?
We were at my Dads house recently and my oldest DS came out of the bathroom and Dad mentioned that he didn't think my DS had washed his hands. I never really thought it was necessary unless drips got on their hands.

What do you think?

Yes we all do.
They may not have dripped by they have touched the toilet seat to put it up or down. They may have also touched  the light switch, the door handle, the wall etc all of which are breeding grounds for nasties.

If you think about it, girls don't touch their 'bits' at all. So you would think it more important for a boy to wash his hands because he actually touches his. Or is it general bathroom germs that you would need to wash for???which obviously leads to one and all washing their hands after being in a toilet, which has always been my reason for needing to wash hands.

I think so.

Not a bad habit to get the little ones used to.

If DH is inside, yes.  If he pee's outside then no!  And I think he pee's outside more times than in!  

But in saying that, most times when he comes in from doing stuff in the shed/yard the first thing he does is wash his hands.

Yep - wipe flush wash after each visit.

They get piddle everywhere. Given the state of my walls surrounding the toilet, thinking I should make them have a shower .

Yes, absolutely. I have two boys. They wash their hands after toileting, as does DH.

Episode 79 - The Pie - Seinfeld - scene: Poppie's Restaurant: Bathroom

QUOTE
(Jerry and Poppie in the bathroom. Jerry washes his hands while Poppie flushes and gets out of the stall)

POPPIE: Ah, Jerry! Tonight you in for a real treat. I'm personnaly going to prepare the dinner for you and my Audrey.

(He zips up and leaves without washing his hands. Jerry notices it very shocked)

(Poppie's Restaurant]

(back at the table with Audrey, Jerry can see Poppie in the kitchen with his hands in the dough, making dinner)

AUDREY: Jerry are you OK?

JERRY: Huh?

AUDREY: Is anything wrong?

JERRY: No, Nothing.

AUDREY: You look like you've seen a ghost.

(Jerry can't talk and he's staring at Poppie's hands. Poppie smiles and winks at him)

Any one in the house has a bowel movement, and they hit the flush button
Your DH/DS comes along and presses that flush button meaning they just took a sample of whatever fecal matter was sitting on the flush button

DS is shocking for this.  I just got home and he smelt of poo, I checked his backside - clean, hands - covered in poo.  Asked him to go wash them.

A few minutes later DS comes into me in the study, what's that stuff on your shirt - poo.  He'd wiped his filthy hands on his shirt so now his shirt has poo on it.  It stinks.  

Cue me losing it.

DD chooses this moment to poo in her undies.

Afternoon outing cancelled - mummy in tears.

Well my 3yo doesn't always but yes I taught my kids to wash their hands after going to the toilet. I thought that was just normal hygiene.

I don't think so though i don't watch my dp go to the toilet so he very well may  shrug.gif.

DF does, and he finds it highly disgusting when others don't, and complains about it often. Especially when out.

Most recently was the new town Ambulance officer who didn't wash his hands after peeing on Thursday night, left the bathroom, and went back to his dinner. DF was highly disgusted by that.

I find that logic odd. So do you only wash your hands when you get a drip on your hands?

Exactly! They may have it done a wee, but the person before them may have done a poo, flushed, opened the door, turned the light switch off before leaving to wash their hands. Next person comes along and touches everything they touched. They still need to wash their hands.

That is seriously disgusting OP sick.gif . Unless your DS can pee and flush without touching himself or the toilet at all. Hand washing is very important to basic hygiene.

Yes...well, they are supposed to.

I teach my sons to wash their hands but they find it  fun to wash hands anyway and usually end up spraying the entire bathroom with water unfortunately.

I kind of think DH doesn't most of the time but I'm not usually in there with him to check!  He also never puts the toilet seat up to pee so never have a problem with it being left up.  I thought this was strange at first but now I think it's good as it's never an issue.
