The Virtues Of Dirt

So which do you think is healthier for your child? If you keep them scrubbed and very clean or if you allow them to be quite a mess? While not quite that cut and dry, the hygiene hypothesis says it's the latter.
In today's Chicago Tribune, an op-ed piece asks parents to let their kids be kids and put those antibacterial wipes away. Bring on the pets and dirty playmates because it could keep your child healthier.
I have to admit, it makes a lot of sense to me.
