The 4-year-old I babysit for is convinced that if he doesn’t sing “the ABC song” all the way through as he washes his hands, the hand-washing is entirely futile.

“Washing without singing will not remove the germs,” he tells me. He also believes that germs will remain on your hands if you get the lyrics wrong. “And you have to sing the song out loud,” he says.
