Watching your child manage the stress of bullies at school is absolutely heartbreaking. Parents often want to intervene and get administration involved. Unfortunately, many discover that this road does not always yield favorable results.

 

This is particularly frustrating because it is crucial to stop bullies before their behavior gets too out of hand. Bullies aren’t just taking kids’ lunch money and calling them mean names anymore.

Playground Injuries? It Can Happen.

Remember the playgrounds we played on? Compared to the plastic and foamy playgrounds our kids play on today, the schoolyards of yesterday probably seem like death traps.

 

We ran around rusty metal poles. Climbed ragged wooden structures full of sharp corners and the promise of splinters. We weren’t falling on foam or rubber, either. One visit to a public park shows how far we’ve come in terms of providing safe areas for our kids.

Which Is More Dangerous: Distracted Driving or DUI?

Most of us probably have at least one ad campaign, billboard, or commercial about dangerous driving habits in the back of our minds when we get behind the wheel.

 

Controversial and shocking ads about dangerous driving are commonly created to scare people into practicing safe driving habits.
