Parenting is one of if not the single largest responsibility
you can take on in life. It takes time, energy, and dedication. In this
world there are many influences you don’t want your kids to have.
With entertainers constantly pushing boundaries it would be difficult
to go through a day as an adult without coming across at least one thing
you wouldn’t want your children exposed to. But how do you keep
these influences away from your children? You cannot be there every
second of every day; and even if you could, that would hardly be beneficial
for your child.
There are many areas of modern technology with snares
for the unwary. TV, Movies and video games are clearly something that
you as a parent should be involved with your child on. You should know
what they are watching and playing; you should know what the ratings
for those things are; and you should have a clearly defined boundary
between what is acceptable and what is not. For TV, a V chip can help.
For movies and video games, there are organizations whose sole purpose
is educating parents on the contents of new releases. They have a comprehensive
set of ratings for both movies and video games that will let you know
whether a given game or movie is suitable for your children.
But in the 21st century, there are many more avenues for
malignant influences to reach your children. While both cell phones
and the internet are invaluable tools for staying connected; they both
have pitfalls for a child. Thankfully, there are internet filters that
you can set up on your computer to limit the sites your children can
access. That means your fourteen year old son can catch up on the latest
sports headlines, but he won’t be looking up centerfolds. The
options on these filters include the ability to set up reports on your
children’s browsing habits, or send you an email when they try
to access a site they aren’t allowed on. They can even be set
to shut down internet access after a certain time of night.
Major cell phone companies have robust parental controls
on phones as well. You can block numbers from your children’s
phones, set them to shut off at a certain time of night, and even activate
emergency tracking on the phone to help find a lost child. And that
brings us to another great new parenting invention: GPS. You can get
a GPS device that your child carries around with them so that you know
where they are. This can provide great peace of mind for any parent
who takes their children to busy public places. It only takes a moment
turned the wrong way for a child to get lost, but with GPS they can
be easily found again.
Parenting responsibilities begin long before TV, movies,
cell phones, video games, or even the internet are of any interest to
your child however. From birth, your child needs to be fed, nurtured,
supported, cared for, oh and fed… From the moment they are born,
we try to protect our children from harm, and baby safety is at the
forefront of any good parent’s mind.
Why do we spend so much time thinking about baby safety?
Babies are fragile, that’s why! When they are born, babies can’t
even hold their own head up. They weigh a meager handful of pounds,
can’t see past 18 inches, and are utterly defenseless. As our
children grow, it always seems that their ability to get into trouble
constantly outpaces their ability to judge what constitutes a bad idea.
Our job as parents is to help steer them away from the worst ideas,
the ones that could seriously injure them.
As parents, we want to provide our babies with the best
things possible, whether it is food, baby toys, education, or baby bedding.
It’s a competitive world, and any edge you can give your children,
you want for them. In many cases it goes beyond a simple edge though.
High quality baby bedding has been shown to reduce incidence of sleeping
problems in infants, including SIDS.
Other pieces of baby gear can be equally important to
keeping a young child safe. Humidifiers are invaluable aids if your
baby catches a cough (and at some point, they will). Organic toys ensure
that your baby isn’t coming into contact with lead based paints
or other toxic chemicals. Safety latches and gates keep your baby out
of areas of the home that could harm them. We have them all here, at
prices that can’t be beat.
