Car Safety & Children

Posted by admin in summer , parenting , kids , injuries , children , cars

When driving children for a long family trip, often kids need items to keep them occupied.  Be aware that loose items in the car can be thrown or become missiles in the event of a crash or sudden stop.  Make sure loose items including DVD players, laptops, purses, CD’s, gifts, etc. are secured in either the trunk, console area, or under a cargo net.  Only provide children with soft toys and games to play in the car.

Tomorrow we will cover how to not get distracted while driving children.

Are We There Yet?

Posted by admin in summer , parenting , children , cars

Another great car traveling tip when driving with children is to give them a map.  They can see where you are at the moment and how far you have until you reach your destination.  This will help with the “are we there yet” question. 

Next time we will look at how to keep everyone safe during a family trip.  Stay tuned.
