Safety for our children is among the number one concern of parents. Yet, time and time again, I am witness to some really bad choices made by parents. Whether it’s letting your 6 year old roam the toy store by himself or allowing a child to run through a parking lot, the lack of common sense never ceases to amaze me.
There are several areas I’d like to touch upon when discussing safety and your children under the age of 12.
- age appropriateness
- safety equipment/clothing
- birthday parties
- things to teach your child if lost/approached by strangers
