Health and Safety

Keeping your kids safe and healthy is just part of the job. But sometimes it's easier than others to know what to do. Kids can also catch you off guard and come up with things you'd never expect to have to deal with.


Playing It Safe: Part 1 - Planning and Constructing a Safe Backyard Playground
A backyard playground is a great way to keep the kids busy, but it's also an easy place for them to get hurt. With proper planning and construction, you can cut down the odds of serious injury.

Playing It Safe: Part 2 - Protective Playground Surfaces - Which Option is Right for You?
One of the best ways to protect children in your backyard playground is to have an appropriate play surface. Get the information you need to make an educated decision.

How Safe is Your Child’s Play Equipment?
It's not just the setup that matters. Think about the materials used and what is in the materials.

Do your children know how to be safe?
It's very important to talk to your children about safety, especially in situations where they might encounter people they don't know.

Protect your kids online
Today's children are likely to spend a lot of time online, especially as they get older. Teach them the rules for dealing with strangers online.

Do You Have Recalled Items in Your Home?
Checking on the safety of things you and your family use in your home could be very important. Fortunately, there are plenty of resources to make this relatively easy.


How do work at home parents get health coverage?
Working at home has many benefits, but health coverage is rarely one of them. There are resources available to help you get the coverage you need for your family.

Most parents won't have to deal with this one, but my family did, so I decided to share our experience.
