12. Memorize Phone Numbers of Parents & Caregivers
As soon as your kids learn their numbers, start to recite your phone number for them. Practice together so they learn how to reach you or their caregiver should anything happen or they ever get lost. And right after they know your phone number, make sure they know how to dial 9-1-1 for an emergency.
13. Have a Family Code Word
Create a code word for your family and share that word with anyone who has your permission to care for your kids when you are not there. Make sure your children know the word and that they should never ever go anywhere with an adult who does not know this code word.
