So naturally the child sees his/her parents working all the time and starts to feel neglected. Finds peer pressure a hard thing to deny and tries drugs. How can we avoid this problem? If you are a workaholic then stop. Work a normal shift and be there for your kids. Retirement is a great thing to work for but so is your child’s health and life. You must take time out of your schedule to talk to kids about drugs. They need to know the dangers and they know them when they are younger because we are not living in the 80’s anymore. Kids found out a lot sooner then we ever did.
Safety for kids involves making sure your child can not get onto the internet and go into chat rooms that many other adults are in. That’s a dangerous thing. We must all put locks on porn sites and chat rooms and sites that are out of educational or cartoon status because that will help our children to ensure they are not talking to some harmful predator. Predators are good at what they do, conning innocents children into giving them anything that they want. So you must be aware that they are out there and waiting. Most of the internet companies will show you and even help you on how to make sure you lock all sites you do not want your children to find.
Make sure you know the boundaries and limits to set for your child, when you are not around him. I believe when spending the night at someone’s house your child should have some form of contacting you, through a cell phone or the new fly phones that they have because you just never know what could happen and as a parent you should always be prepared for the worst even if it never happens because you can never be to prepared.
Safety for kids involves helping your child to know what to do if he/she is ever attacked or hurt rather by a dog or another person. You must make sure your child knows that if he she is attacked by a dog to cover both neck and face. Also to call for help as much as possible but very important is to keep neck and face covered at all times. Most children are learning to take Karate and self defense classes. I believe someone should offer these classes free. That way kids rich or poor can take a class to help them learn what to do if ever attacked.
There are lots of ways to protect your children and teaching them ways to protect themselves is one of the best ways. For younger children, you want to make sure your child safety seats are securely in your vehicle and to ensure this you can almost go to any fire or EMS station and they will check it for you and show you exactly how it’s supposed to be set in there.
So from first aid help to child safety seats there are many ways and many tips, out there to help keep your children safe from harm. Safety for kids advice can be found anywhere on the internet, if you don’t have the internet, any library or any human resources office will be happy to print out ways to help keep your children safe.
