Mom's response to why her two-year-old doesn't get ill

Mom's response to why her two-year-old doesn't get ill

Do you believe in letting kids learn by getting dirty or are you a clean freak with them?

With the change of weather and rise in viral infections, we can firmly say that sometimes we wish our kids lived in a bubble that protected them from the harsh reality of getting ill. 

But the truth of the matter is that no one can live life in a bubble and the more you want to put a bubble around your kid, the more susceptible they are to infections. 

A mother who does not believe in keeping her kid in a bubble answered a pressing question that she gets all the time. 

In a video, she addressed a question she gets often: "How is he almost 2 and never been sick?!" 

Not only does this mother have a healthy kid with strong immunity, but she also has a good sense of humour.
