I think heating is really bad for kids. My daughters school is much too hot and they are all going down with all kinds of horrible bugs. I think you do need to keep warm, but it is better to wear more clothes and just have minimum heating on.

I agree, you should have a dehumidifier in you house, if you can;t afford to get a whole house one you should at least buy a couple of the smaller ones to put in the room you use the most, and your bedrooms.

Heating isn't too good for anyone. Babies, grown ups or animals. If it is very dry, then a humidifier should be bought and used to keep some moisturizer in the air. Otherwise, turn the shower on hot and let the room steam up.

I wouldn't keep the heat too high and if anything put containers of water around the house. It will help keep moisture in the air. My mom used to keep old metal pots on top of all the radiators in out house. If I didn't keep my water pot full, it would get real stuffy in my room.
