Has anyone here dealt w / someone w / a phobia of germs ????
To what extent are we talking? I am a nurse, so I feel I have a phobia of germs to a certain extent, but I also know that exposing kids to a little dirt, dust, or animals can be good for them in the long run to help thier immune systems mature. There are many things though that I will not let my daughter do! I also wash everything on a regular basis if she puts it in her mouth (stuffed animals, blankets, toys, etc.)
