This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Ivory. The opinions and text are all mine.
Every day we are faced with little choices to make on behalf of our family: fruit or cookies, board game or video game, homework or relaxation, chemical cleaners or natural cleaners, perfumed body wash or pure body wash… each of these choices has the power to lead our kids down the path of a healthier life.
As parents, it is our job to make these healthy choices for them. We do these things when they are children, so they can grow up to be healthy adults. Leading by example is always the best way to teach our children.
You’ve heard the phrase “Do what I say, not what I do”? This is so popular because there are so many times when we don’t do what we say, and our kids see that and follow THAT example. Make it a point to let your kids see you making healthy choices, like choosing soap free of dyes and parabens.
Here are our favorites:
Ivory Original 3-bar: Free of dyes & heavy perfumes. New look, same pure soap
Ivory Original Body Wash: Gentle clean, trusted for generations
Ivory Free & Gentle Body Wash with Pear & Sandalwood: Includes the #1 Dermatologist-Recommended moisturizing ingredient
When Becky and I have to make choices like this in the house, it seems easy- don’t keep the cookies in the house if you want them to pick fruit.
Eliminate electronics through the week if you want them to play with toys. Require they do homework before they can relax and take ‘time-off.’ Keep natural cleaners around so the kids can help clean from an early age. Only keep soap and body wash that is free of dyes, for a pure and gentle clean.
We want our kids to use Ivory, for the pure ingredients that make for a healthier choice. It’s also easy to show them we use Ivory, too. The simple, beloved formula… is just one of the reasons that it’s been trusted for generations, one of the reasons they call it “The Original Gentle Family Brand.”
Ivory has been trusted for 138 years because of the strong brand history – my family used Ivory when I was a kid! It’s vintage-inspired new packaging reminds me of this. It has the same trusted formulation, so it’s a no-brainer. After the hectic beginning of the new year, it’s time to get our kids back to simpler times. It’s time to remind them about health & taking care of themselves. Since Ivory soap is 99.44 percent pure, it’s our go-to soap.
Teaching the kids to make choices that keep them healthy & simplify their lives is always a great way to lead our kids.
