Keeping Track

While I’ve never been a devoted user of Facebook, I do occasionally log on to keep up with family and friends. I’ve also discovered that a lot of useful tips get passed on through social media, including this one for finding a lost child when at a major public event.

Next time you’re at an amusement park, fireworks spectacular, parade or other event where kids can easily separate from parents, write your cell phone number on the child’s arm and cover it with liquid bandage. This provides an easy way for authorities to get in touch to let you know that your child is safe and where he or she can be found.

This can also be done with a bracelet or necklace, or the tactics can be combined to ensure that your child can be identified after wandering away. If you have additional tips for keeping track of your kids, share them in the comments and the best get a mention in a later post.
