CHILD SAFETY

  • It is easy to get distracted in our world today but do something to remind yourself that your child is in the car with you. Place a stuffed animal in the seat next to you as a visual reminder that your child is in the back, or leave your purse or breifcase or some item you'll need at your destination in the backseat with the child. It only takes one quick decision-Watch this powerful video.
