child safety wrist strap - a tutorial

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?

  1. Hi, thanks for sharing this. You've inspired me to make my own. Unfortunately, our kid unwrapped it instantly when we tried it on him. So my husband and I made our own version. Here's my tutorial for it. I mentioned your link of course.

  2. They can encourage lifting too much weight. Since exercises are made easier, it can be tempting to lift more weight than you are ready for.
    I think that carrying a water bottle around with you at the gym is much more important than carrying extra implements, and you should carry a memo pad or other journal where you can record your workouts as well.

  3. In this article I will present basic information on strength, cardiovascular and flexibility training that I have found to be foundational in my experiences with physique transformation contests as well as fitness training in general.
