March is “Child Safety Month” at Ready. Set. Grow!
Now that February’s focus on oral health is wrapped up, we’re tackling two important issues in March: grieving and child safety.
Death is a subject we seldom like to talk about, and it tends to enter our lives without warning. Whether the loss is a friend, family member or pet, death can be a very confusing and mystifying time for young children. In partnership with Sesame Street’s “When Families Grieve” campaign, we’ll give you resources and strategies to support, educate and guide your child, and your family, through the healing process.
Keeping children safe from abuse and neglect is another First 5 LA goal, as outlined in our Strategic Plan. This month, we’ll deliver tips and advice on household safety, baby proofing and injury prevention, as well as resources and information on post-partum depression and mental health issues.
