Did you know that on October 6th is considered as Child Health Day? It was originally created by President Calvin Coolidge in 1928. The day specifically focuses on creating an awareness to minimize or alleviate health problems that children may face including asthma, diabetes, and obesity.
It’s also the perfect opportunity to sit down with your young child and share some Play-It-Safe rules. Abbie Schiller is the CEO of The Mother Company, which provides tools to teach young children about safety, and author of a new children’s book, “Miles is the Boss of His Body,” about a 6-year-old who is uncomfortable with people patting, pinching and hugging him and finally draws the line. Abbie shares six rules grownups should teach kids to Play-It-Safe.
