Moms Share Strategies, Remedies To Fight Colds And Flu
Some mothers will take extreme measures to prevent getting a cold. Nearly 45-percent of the mothers taking part in a new Vicks poll say that when their spouses are sick they won't kiss or even hug them. Ten-percent won't sleep with their sick spouse, either, but instead stay on the couch for the duration of the cold. When it comes to home remedies for a cold, moms primarily rely on tea, orange juice, and chicken soup, along with plenty of water and a humidifier. But when they're the ones who are sick, most moms want to spend their downtime with Hugh Grant, Patrick Swayze, or Matthew Broderick. "Love Actually," "Dirty Dancing," and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" are the top three movies on the moms' list of favorite films to watch while sick.
