If your kid’s school is not doing a good job of protecting them and their stuff, have a talk with the administration.

Be Smart Traveling to and from School

Unless your child is driven from your front door right to the school door and back, you may have a little concern.

Whether your kid is walking to and from school, on a school bus or old enough to drive or bike ride you want them safe.

That said, make sure to impress upon them how important it is that they watch their surroundings for one. It is always better to go to and from school with at least one friend by their side.

If your child is old enough to drive to and from school or ride a bike, make sure they obey all the rules of the road. You do not want to hear that your young one was injured in a vehicle or bicycle accident.

Yes, sending your child off to school for many years can be putting some gray hairs on your head.

With that in mind, do all you can to keep them safe and secure each time out.
