Have you ever lost your child, even for a moment?
It can happen anywhere – at the mall, an amusement park, school field trip or even the grocery store. You turn your head for a moment and suddenly your child has disappeared, leaving you panic-stricken.
And it can happen to anyone. Curious children often wander away, investigating a ride at the park, checking out the puppies at the mall’s pet store or searching for candy at the supermarket.
The moment that a parent realizes their child is gone, they get a sinking feeling in the pit of their stomach and their blood turns ice cold. They scream their child’s name, ask the closest store or park employee to alert their staff and call the police, fearing the worst-case-scenario.
Now, many companies are making great products that focus on kids’ safety. One of my favorite finds is the Safety Tat (www.safetytat.com), a colorful temporary safety tattoo that can be customized with the child’s name, parents’ names, parents’ cell phone numbers or other key information. The Safety Tat can give parents peace of mind knowing that if their child gets separated from them, a police officer or store staff member can quickly and easily re-connect the missing child with his or her parents.
Have you found any other great safety products that make you feel more secure when bringing your children out in crowded locations?
