Child development and teaching is not just about theoretical rules and regulations, but about practicality and putting those rules into action.
Teach your child how to be safe when you are not around and when they encounter strangers.

Giving your children the knowledge of what to do if things look or feel wrong to them will help their self-confidence and assure them that they are loved.
Teach your child what to do if there is a fire or an emergency. A government study shows every year at least one child will die in a house fire.
Children under 5 are at the most risk, having a death rate of nearly twice that of the national average in the United States. Making sure your child knows what to do if there is a fire in the home is a must for child development and teaching. Most importantly, teach your child never to play with matches, lighters, or anything else that could generate fire.
Before you let your child use public play equipment at the park, local gym, or fast food restaurant, make sure that it is safe. Make sure there is no rusted sharp edges or loose bolts that could cause the equipment to fail.
Putting all these things into practice will help you child development and teaching efforts to result in good rewards for years to come for both you and your child. It takes a lot of effort but your child will see the love you have for them and this is the greatest development tool of them all.
