Ø Teach your children how to identify an emergency and how to get help, especially if they get lost. Practice scenarios with them so you are sure they know what to do.
Ø Remember that even on long car trips, children should always sit in the back seat and be buckled up in an appropriate car seat.
Ø Remind your children often to NEVER give out personal information over the Internet.
Ø Insist that ALL family members ALWAYS wear helmets when riding bikes or scooters. Life-altering accidents can happen even when playing in your own driveway.
Ø Take time this summer to have fun as a family. Indiana has many beautiful state parks to explore!
