African American Child Washing His Hands

African American Child Washing His Hands

Photos of African American families: This African-American mother was shown in the process of teaching her young son how to properly wash his hands at their kitchen sink, briskly rubbing his soapy hands together under fresh running tap water, in order to remove germs, and contaminants, thereby, reducing the spread of pathogens, and the ingestion of environmental chemicals or toxins. Children are taught to recite the Happy Birthday song, during hand washing, allotting enough time to completely clean their hands.
