Friday morning she woke up with a chill, a moan and then those words every mom dreads mom I don’t feel well. Ugh, right! We all hate when our kids are sick. What I have worried about most each and every time is fever, as she had a fever seizure when she was young. In my daughter’s high school there were lots of sick teens last week it is that time of the year.

According to a recent survey of approximately 750 Canadians conducted by the makers of Honeywell Air Purifiers and Vicks Humidifiers & Thermometers, 64 per cent indicated that fever scares them. I know even now it scares me, and my daughter is a teen.

Most Thermometers are designed to take a temperature under the arm. The one thermometer we are now using is the ┬áthe Braun ThermoScan Ear Thermometer. It has been a recent addition to our house, and we are even gifiting one to my nephew and his wife who have a new son so they don’t have to worry about fevers. Why measure in the ear? It is the best site to measure a few because of its close proximity to the eardrum, which shares blood supply to the brain and it allows for a more accurate core temperature.

The thermometer features a patented pre-warmed tip technology that minimizes the cooling effect of the tip and helps ensure accurate measurements time after time. I have to say I love the positioning system that uses a light and been to ensure accuracy.. Now you be replacing disposable lens filters each time to make sure you are getting accuracy.

This thermometer generally retails for $79.99 but you can get a bonus of 40 filters if you buy the Braun Thermoscan at Toys ‘R’ Us, and it is $69.97 at Walmart but without the bonus filters and you can also find it at Shoppers DrugMart ( if you use your Optimum points) you can bring down the price that way. It can also be found at other major retailers.

To help you through all these nasty cold and flues one lucky reader will win a Braun ThermoScan.  Just tell me how do you deal with your kids when they are under the weather? What worries you most and how do you keep them well when half the kids at school are sick.
