6 Tips To Avoid Losing Your Child In A Public Place


For a parent, there are few experiences more terrifying than losing sight of your child in a public place. Whether you’re off on a family vacation or a shopping trip at the mall, the fear that you feel is completely indescribable. Your mind spins, and your heart begins to race as you imagine all of the things that could happen to your little one without you there to protect them. To prevent a situation like this or ensure that a similar one ends well, here are six things that you need to do.

Dress In Bright Colors
Neon green and bright yellow clothes may not be the height of fashion, but they can be the difference between losing your child and not. After all, these bright colors are much more noticeable than muted tones, and, as such, will attract your eye. This means that you’ll easily be able to spot your little one even when they wander off into a large crowd of people.

Choose A Meeting Place
It doesn’t matter whether you’re visiting a beach, theme park, or mall - When you arrive, you should take the time to discuss what should happen if anyone were to become separated from the group. Choose a place to meet, like a lifeguard’s station or customer service booth before doing anything else. Some areas even have specific points for lost children to find their parents.

Use A Tracking Device
Today’s technology makes it easier than ever to keep an eye on your children. If any of your little ones have a smartphone, the app Family Orbit allows you to track their location in real time. There are also many devices that you can put in your child’s pocket or on their belt. Just ensure that your little one knows what this device is and to now throw it away under any circumstances.

Write Down Your Details
As soon as your little one learns to talk, you need to teach them to recite their full name, your full name, your phone number, and your home address. By doing this, you ensure that whoever finds your child can also easily find you. If your little one can’t talk yet or is particularly shy, then you should write these details down somewhere, such as on their arm, a bracelet, or a necklace.

Train Your Little One
Giving your child your details is incredibly important, but it will prove to be useless if they don’t know what to do with them. Beyond plans for specific situations, you must also train your little one on how to find help when they can’t find you. Teach them to look for people in uniforms, or a mom with other children, and to never get into the car of someone that they don’t know.

Snap A New Photograph
When you’re in a public place, there are probably lots of other children around, which can make it difficult for the authorities and other searchers to pick out your little one. This is why one of the first things that the authorities will ask for is a recent photograph. Snapping a picture of your child the morning before you head out means that the clothes they are wearing will be in the photo too.

Losing a child, even for a moment, can be a traumatic experience. Thankfully, with these tips, you can ensure that such situations are resolved quickly and happily.
