Child Safety – With Large Crowds – Getting Help

I saw this and wanted to share it. What a quick and easy way to provide a way for your lost child to find his or her way back to you. Especially if they are young. Just write contact information for you and cover in a liquid bandage type product. It will stay good for the day and provide emergency personnel a way to get a hole for you if your child goes lost at amusement parks, fair or other crowed place.

I have also heard of another way to do this. For you to buy a per minute cell phone just for a child to have on them in case they are lost. Have your contact information listed on the phone. You can call them and they can tell emergency personnel that the contact information is in their phone. I would personally get a phone and case that could be attached to a lanyard or belt loop somehow so it can’t get lost.

Easy & Cheap Way To Child Proof Your Door Handles

This is not my setup but it was where I got the idea from. Credit to the original owner of the photo.

We recently ran into a problem with our young daughter. We went to visit relatives and she found her way out of the front door and was playing with the neighbors children. To think of the nightmare that could have happened. I get sick thinking about it.

I couldn’t very well ask the relatives to add child protective locks on their doors. So we had to come up with a simple cheap and effective solution to keep her safe.

We went to the dollar store and bought a rubber main salad bowl. We cut an X in the lid just big enough to force the door handle through. This lid screwed on to bowl tight. So we pushed the lid onto the handle and screwed the bowl on when we went to sleep. For a dollar it was a bit more protection – although not fool proof.

Family Time: Awesome Hobbies You Can Share With Your Kids

Spending time with your kids is always full of new memories you will use to “embarrass” them in front of their friends. However, nothing can replace those moments and you will always feel as though they grew up too quickly. Instead of waiting for the perfect time to have family time, you can be more proactive and create your own.

Hobbies are one of the gratifying and easiest ways to have not only fun but also spend quality time with your family. Kids love the new and interesting stuff, and it won’t take you long to find something that will interest you all. In order to help, we prepared the list of possible hobbies you can share with your kids. So choose one and make those memories every parent likes to share at social gatherings.   

Take lessons together

There must be something you think you missed to learn when you were a kid. Having kids is a perfect time to make up for that perceived lost time. For example, take language lessons together or attend a drawing class. This will give you a unique opportunity to not only learn something new but also teach your kid how to be a responsible student.

Some other fun experiences could be to learn how to make origami or pottery class since kids like making stuff. However, whatever you choose make sure your child is interested to learn since otherwise, it will only be a one-sided amusement.

Grow plants in the garden

If you have an outdoor space, turn it into the garden and start planting together with your kids. They like getting dirty and you can even get them gardening tools specifically intended for kids. You will both spend an amusing time choosing what to plant and how to organize your garden.

This is also an educational moment when you can teach them about food and importance of environment in human life. Digging the soil will help them release the energy and observing the growing process will make them feel important

Explore nature

Going on hikes is not only healthy but will also give you the chance to talk with your kid away from the city chaos. Nature is maybe a usual choice for family time, but it is always full of options and opportunities.

You can play sports on the lawn or jog in the park, as well as having a picnic time during weekends and start a family tradition. You can show your kids the meaning of nature in human life while allowing them to dazzle you with their imagination about faraway lands among the greenery.   

Fun time with music

If you know how to play an instrument, don’t impose it on your kid, but rather let them get to know all the choices together with you. First off, introduce them to the instrument. For example, visiting piano sales with a child is an enjoyable way to show them what it’s all about. Watch concerts with them or take them to one.

Turn it into a family thing to regularly attend certain concerts and musical happenings. If you want, you can also learn to play the same instrument with your kid. That would take this family time hobby to a whole different level and make the experience more memorable.

 Start a collection together

Kids like to collect things like napkins and toys. This is a wonderful occasion to wake up the child inside and start a collection together with your kid. It’s never too late to be geeky, so team up with your kid and start some interesting collections together.  

There are also fairs and festivals dedicated to certain collecting interests, so you can go there together, have fun and expand your collection. It’s always nice to meet fellow collectors and it will only help your child and you bond even more.

In the end

The most important thing you have to do before starting a hobby with your kids is to listen to them. They will already show interest in certain things and you can help them broaden their knowledge by being supportive. Additionally, sharing a hobby will also teach you more about your children and make you, even more, a part of their growing up.

 

Safety Solution For Your Vehicle Save The Lives Of Children & Pets

I am very excited to talk to you all today, as there has finally been a technical breakthrough in protecting children and pets from being run over by vehicles or equipment.

Our friends North of us in Canada have developed a revolutionary way of protecting people, environment, and assets. This Canadian company is called National Safety Solutions, and they have patented the Start Right Safety Device. Now that they have completed all their vigorous testing of the prototypes National Safety Solutions is proud to say that they have begun manufacturing in Vancouver, Canada.


The device operates like this; when the driver or operator of any type of vehicle jumps in and starts the engine an 85-decibel alarm sounds within 5 seconds, for those of you unsure of how loud this is, it is comparable to a food blender (88db) or a Vacuum Cleaner (70db). Once the alarm has sounded the driver knows immediately that they have forgotten to walk around the vehicle and ensure that kids or pets are not playing behind, around or even under the vehicle or leaving hazards such as bikes, or skateboards that are out of sight of the back up camera (if your vehicle has one).

With the alarm sounding, the driver turns the vehicle off and takes a small handheld Scanner and proceeds to pass the Scanner over each strategically place Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags usually on each corner of the vehicle. When you have completed these steps, the driver returns to the driver seat and turns the ignition on. The Scanner connects with a few quick beeps to the Data Logger inside the vehicle, and the alarm will not sound. This device has taken the complacency out of drivers that never look around the vehicle or the drivers that solely rely on their mirrors and back-up cameras. In our busy lives we all make a very common mistake, that is not making sure it is safe to move or vehicles. So many folks have done this and now live with the grief of being responsible for one of these horrific accidents. Nothing will ever replace the simple ‘feet on the ground’ approach to ensuring that your vehicle is safe to move.

If you could take a minute to check out KIDSANDCARS.org http://www.kidsandcars.org/ you will see just how often this really happens. I am sure many people have said ‘It would never happen to me’, ‘I have a back up camera’ or ‘I checked my mirrors I know it is safe to go’! How many of us really think about if it is safe to move our vehicles? I know I look for the obvious when sitting in the driver’s seat but after following up with the website of KIDSANDCARS.org, I now realize how big the blind spots really are while sitting in my vehicle. This has been a huge eye opener for me, therefore I envision this safety device to be on all types of vehicles and equipment, from personal vehicles, school buses, government cars and trucks, as well as many industrial and commercial applications.

The folks at National Safety Solutions tell me that if there is enough interest in their product within the USA then they will begin manufacturing the Start Right Safety Device right here in America. It is always nice to say, ‘Made in America’ and not somewhere offshore. When you follow up with this great product, you will contact Byron@nsslca.com and use the promo code: B2018K01T which will entitle you to a promotional discount on your purchase. The best part about this whole concept is that we can prevent so many horrific incidents for under $725.00 CND. With the Promo discount and exchange rate it will be approximately $500.00 USD or possibly less. Now that is what I call inexpensive peace of mind.

This product is an exciting and innovative resource that we all can utilize to help protect our children, grandchildren, pets, our fellow workers, and our property and assets. If you have been, or know someone that has ever been, impacted by this type of incident please share this with them as you could be that person that has helped prevent the next life changing event.
