“In honor of Safe Kids Day, we’ve created a “Safer in 7” challenge we want every family to take. When it comes to safety for children, we think about the basics: buckle up, wear a helmet, learn to swim, look both ways. But we sometimes forget some of the lesser-known things parents should think about such as button batteries, smoke alarms, and the dangers of distraction.”
