Dateline TV and Joel Salads recently published social experiments on stranger danger and put kids to the test. Results were shocking and eye opening. Are parents not preparing their children enough for the unthinkable situation of child abduction, sexual abuse, or assault? Most parents are unsure when it is the right age to speak about this topic with their children. That's why SmartKidsID would like to emphasize the need for parents to verbalize this topic with their children as early as possible. It is important to increase the child's awareness of situations that possibly could make them feel uncomfortable and build up a child's confidence in how to handle those situations with strangers or people they know. It is very important to clarify that possible predators are not necessarily strangers, but can also be relatives and people that children might have met before (i.e. people that came to the house before for any reason).

Few people, if any, can get through the day without having their smartphone or tablet close at hand. Close at hand for us means close at hand for a baby who will use just about anything they can get their little hands on for teething purposes. If risk of damage to the device or exposing baby to bacteria weren't bad enough, there are much bigger problems to face. That's because smartphone and tablet cases are made from toxic plastics and designed with paints or coatings that are linked to cancer, neurological and behavior disorders, obesity and worse. Every baby teething on a high tech gadget is exposed to all of these heath risks.

Becoming a parent changes people's lives in many ways. One of the key ways in which parents find themselves struggling is in maintaining the lifestyle they had before they had children.

Spring has sprung and it's given many people a little extra spring in their step.

Parents who are faced with a teen who is showing patterns of deceptive behavior may have more to worry about than they think. For most parents, one of the greatest fears is finding out that their teen is involved in drugs or other illegal activity and more importantly how it may affect their future. As a parent, the first instinct is to try to look for "the obvious signs" that something is potentially wrong. They know their child's routine and they think they know who their friends are. Then the teen becomes extremely secretive and begins lying about such things as, where they have been or who they were with. They may have costly items in their possession they claim they borrowed from "a friend" and become irritated when pressed further. What these signs may actually be showing is a destructive pattern. When this occurs it is very difficult for parents to truly identify what their teen may be involved in or to what degree.
