I know that it’s not just my clients who tend to run away from their parents in shopping centres, parks, fast food restaurants and anywhere they’re given an inch, MOST kids do it at some point. And there is such a range in kids’ abilities to tell that lovely person who stops them in the street, or before something scary happens who they are, where mum was last and how to get in touch with her!
This is where Tacker Trackers come in. Disposable wrist bands (like the ones I might get at a festival to show I should be there, or that I am 18+!) with cute little designs, and a place to write a mobile number in case of separation.
They come in packs of 12 (3 designs) for $9.95 including texta and instructions. There are “Boys”, “Girls” and “mixed” packs. All pretty cool! :)
Do you use anything like that with your kids to help track them down?
