Because young children do not yet have a good sense of the passage of time, i twill be important for adults to ensure that the handwashing process is done correctly and can be navigated succesfully. The Time Timer® WASH is a product that can easyly help to ensure that a young child goes through the appropriate process for effective handwashing, without needing an adult to monitor the amount of time they scrub.
