I have a link involving child safety that I recommend that all who care for children should read – parents, grandparents, babysitters, daycare teachers, etc. It could save the life of your child and help you to appreciate even more every moment you have with them.
What does this have to do with Child Safety?
I received an email last week from my kids’ daycare director with this link to a touching (and heart-wrenching) blog post, written by a mother whose 3-year-old daughter died from a dresser falling on her. I recommend you do all you can to get through it, because it will make you a wiser, smarter, and better child caregiver. I realize we all think “This won’t happen to me!”, but I’m certain that Meghan’s mother thought the same thing at some point.
I read the post, now what?
Then “like” her Facebook page called “Meghan’s Hope,” which she created to help educate everyone on the everyday dangers that children face, so we all can make this a safer world for our little ones.
Since the end of December, the “Meghan’s Hope” Facebook page has gone from about 1000 likes to now over 10,000 and counting. Her blog post has received over 800,000 visits.
Note: Since the writing of this post, “Meghan’s Hope” has surpassed 27,000 likes. Her mother continues to fight for legislation and awareness around child safety in all avenues of life. Although the blog is no longer updated, the post still exists to help fight this battle for child safety and show the dangers of what is out there. Please don’t ignore this cry for hope.
Saving money is important, but saving children’s lives is essential, and we can only do that by keeping them safe.
Treasure your little ones every moment!
