Welcome to TEDI BEAR's Parent Pages!
Being a parent is great. But it is hard sometimes, even for the most caring mom or dad.
We can all use some help. That is what you will find here.
The world can be a dangerous place, and many kids are abused. But they can often avoid being abused if they just know how. As parents, it is our job to teach them.
All parents need to learn about safety, and kids can begin learning safety lessons when they are very young. As kids get older, they can learn more. They need to learn more, because as they go out into the world they will face new risks and challenges.
Please click on the pictures below to see some great ways to keep kids safe. Talk about these lessons with your children. Praise them for learning, and remind them about the lessons so they don't forget.
Remember that YOU are your children's biggest advantage. Remind them that you want them to be safe and happy, and that they can always talk to you about their problems and worries.
That is one of the best things any parent can do. It also sets a good example for your children to follow when they become parents themselves someday.
