You’re Invited

I’m a paramedic and I invite you to put me out of business. And while you are at it to put a lot of emergency room doctors and nurses out of business as well. Here’s how:

  • The very first time you put your child in a car- home from the hospital, have him or her in an age appropriate car seat.
  • As your child grows, switch to an appropriate booster. And your little one always sees Mom and Dad, and the grandparents and siblings in seatbelts- always.Keeping them safe
  • Your child never sees your drive under the influence and never sees you text and drive- never.
  • You build a fence around your pool and teach your children to swim and to never swim alone.
  • Your child is taught its cool to wear a helmet while learning to ride a bike and long after- same with skates and roller blades.
  • You teach and practice good nutrition- healthy eating introducing a variety of different foods.
  • You exercise, ride or walk, play golf or tennis, canoe or ski. You teach your child that exercise is as fun- often better than a life of only TV and video games.
  • You don’t smoke and don’t allow smokers around your kids.\You talk to your kids about the internet and internet safety. You get to know your child’s friends.
  • You learn and teach appropriate stress management that does not involve alcohol, drugs or overindulging in food.

You teach that peace is preferred to fighting and love- especially of oneself – is the greatest gift of all.

  1. Great advice – too often parents get into the ‘do as I say, not as I do’, but most of what kids learn is by watching what their parents DO!
