1) Carry our articles in your newsletter or materials
We make a variety of articles that can be freely used by others. These are listed on our free child safety content page. We also allow content from our Child Safety Blog to be reprinted or posted in print form only. (Sorry, not on the web!) in local news letters and other non commercial applications, so long as it includes a byline with our web address. These cover a variety of child safety topics, keeping parents up-to-date on the latest information to protect their kids. Especially great for churches and child care establishments, they can be posted on bulletin boards, published in newsletters, or set out as reading material for parents.
2) Activity sheets
Nearly any business can benefit from these. Restaurants can print them out and give to kids to do while they are waiting on their meal. Retail stores should keep a stack under the counter and pass them out to customers with kids. Service businesses could give them out with a tub of crayons to the children while they wait. Bored children can be a nightmare, as any parent will attest to, and this simple jester can go a long way towards improving customer service. Best of all, you’ll be teaching kids safety at the same time. (Activity sheets can be found on the Resource Page.)
