Child Safety

Child Safety in New Orleans

It’s truly remarkable how quickly children grow and learn new things, isn’t it? But along with that comes the need to ensure their safety every step of the way.

Being vigilant about child safety isn’t just about setting strict boundaries or constantly hovering over them. In fact, it’s more about creating an environment where they can safely explore, play, and eventually develop skills that can help them make better decisions as they grow older. For example, knowing the color of your child’s swimsuit is an essential and easy to implement way to ensure swimming safety.

And let’s not forget the crucial role of open communication and trust with our kids; this helps them feel comfortable talking to us about challenges they might face.

At the end of the day, our foremost priority is to keep them secure, both physically and emotionally – and that’s a responsibility we should all take to heart.

Growing up, my sister and I were always very strong swimmers. We are 22 months apart, so we took the same swimming lessons, went to “stay away” summer camps, and frequently swam at friends and families’ pools. In fact,...

As temperatures rise throughout the summer months, so does the need for parents and caregivers to be extra vigilant about never leaving young children alone in a hot car. Since 1990, more than 1,000 children have died in these...
I adopted my first fur baby almost 4 years before I brought home a human baby. She had her issues, but she was an incredibly sweet and gentle dog, so though I was extremely diligent about supervising my children’s...
The World Wide Web is a great place for your children to find fun facts, stay in touch with family and friends, and keep up with school assignments, but it’s important that you are aware of the potential dangers....
“Jennifer! I lost Conner!” “Wait, What?!” “I lost him! He’s gone!” “What do you mean you LOST him?!” “He just took off and ran! I can’t find him! He’s gone!” My world stopped when I got that phone call. So many thoughts were running...
