More children ages 5 to 14 are seen in emergency rooms for injuries related to biking than any other sport. Helmets can reduce the risk of severe brain injuries by 88 percent – yet only 45 percent of children 14 and under usually wear a bike helmet. #bikesafety
Child Safety Tip - who is the "safest" stranger for kids to talk to if they get lost. I love this, especially the mom with kids!! so smart. I also like how it's an elderly COUPLE, not just one person..
Need to do this!! Positive reinforcement - Put a cotton ball, marble, pom-pom, etc. in every time you catch your child being good. Do something special when it's full. Nice little reminder for mom to notice the good and acknowledge it!
About 97% of all abductions are done by people the child knows well, usually a non-custodial parent. Molestation is also primarily done by a trusted adult or another child. Instead, make a secret word for when you need someone else to pick up your child, discuss rules like no going into ANYONE's house without telling you, tell them to seek another parent when lost, teach good touch vs bad touch.
Create a fun bracelet for your children and use beads to add your phone number. Great for emergencies or if your child gets lost. DIY emrgency safety craft. - http://diycraftsmom.com/child-safety-emergency-phone-number-bracelet/
