Child Diving Into Water


As soon as possible your child should learn important lifesaving skills. You and your child can benefit from learning these skills encase of emergencies. Learning these skills not only is life saving but great quality time spent with your child.

Teach Your Child Basic Driving Skills

I know it is against the law for a child to drive without a drivers license but wouldn't you rather get a ticket and save lives.

Any emergency could happen at anytime. Like a heart-attack,seizure ect...

I started out steering the steering wheel. I could not reach the pedals at age 6 but learned to steer the car and shift the gears. While sitting on my parents lap.

When I was tall enough I learned to use the pedals. My parents would take me to a secluded spot to practice driving.

My parent thought this was an important skill for me as a child to learn encase of an emergency. If there was no one else to take over the wheel.

Spending time with my parents learning to drive was one of my best memories.

After your child learns their full name and your full name. You should teach them their phone number. Where you can be reached at all times. If your child is disabled or too young to learn phone numbers. You can purchase a wrist band with information encase you have to be reached.

You should not solely rely on a wrist identity band. You should put in the effort to teach your child regardless of wrist band because the wristband could get broken or lost.
