Parents in the workforce! It’s not always easy to personally drop off and pick up kids from school to ensure their safety. You don’t have to become their bodyguard to keep them safe. Here are some tips for teaching them to stay safe on their walk any time of the year:

Whether your kids are biking, walking or bussing to school, accompany them one time and evaluate the route chosen. This will help you become familiar with the route they take, as well as scope out any potential hazards.
2. Arrange a buddy system
The route they choose might be safe, nevertheless, it’s better to have your kids travelling with others so that in the event of an emergency they have someone to assist them.
