I don't know about your kids, but mine are the free spirited, adventure seeking, lets explore kind.
(Read independent & strong willed!!)
That's all well and good in the backyard, in the bush or at the playground.
Not so good at the shops, walking to school or traversing a car park!!
Events today at the shopping complex, have inspired me to make a couple of wrist straps for my two smallest kids. Here's how I did it.
Disclaimer :: This is not to be used instead of holding the child's hand.
It is an additional means of knowing where they are.
But you knew that already!!
I recommend making as many as you need and keeping them with you, just in case.
I made two and they will live in my handbag.
Do you have issues with your kids sticking with you when out and about?
What do you do to balance safety with independence?
