Tips For Taking a Child to a Crowded Place

Every Parent Who Has Ever Feared Losing Their Child in a Crowd Needs to See This

For parents who have ever taken their child to a busy event, you most likely know that dreaded feeling: the split second that you think your child has gotten lost in the mass of people and sheer panic momentarily sinks in. Whether you've experienced this heart-sinking moment at a Summer festival, amusement park, or beach, or just have major anxiety about taking your child anywhere near a crowd, the Clovis Police Department in California have shared a game-changing tip to help your family in this dreaded situation.

To ease your fears and preemptively protect your child, write your phone number on his or her inner wrist and then cover it with liquid Band-Aid. This will keep the vital informational from washing off all day in case you get separated. The police officers also recommend snapping a photo of your child on your phone before leaving for the event so you have an updated photo with their exact outfit and hairstyle on hand in case you should need it. While it's never pleasant to think about the worst-case scenario, these easy tips will leave you prepared while you enjoy some Summer fun with your kiddos.
