Parents.com shares an alarming statistic: nearly 1,000 kids a day get lost for more than 60 minutes.
There is a fear nearly all parents face in a store or any public place, if only for two seconds: where are they? It is so easy to be running errands, looking at the "to-do" list, and take that one second missing the turn down the aisle you passed as your child looks at that one "shiny object." Every small child has a shiny object that is as unique to them as a favorite toy or story. No parent is perfectly attuned to the shiny object attraction -- we all try, it is mission impossible. What can we do to help?
This week, among the new releases, there are two interesting new books for the parental category -- what to do when we get there -- conversation: " Flint Goes to the Supermarket " and " My First Book of Playground Things "
Spending time reading about the new experience, before you explore them together is a reading staple on Smart Kidz Club. Dentist, doctor, supermarket -- taking the time to get them prepared for what to expect is empowering. It gives them the lay of the land we take for granted as their curiosity grows. As you read these editions together it will make the day of errands a product of education and more importantly: help make them safe.
