Festivals can be quite fun because of a number of activities that you can choose from. But at the same time, it can be quite hectic because literally, a lot is happening around you. That is why, it could be a challenge for you, or for anyone to bring their young children during festivals because it might be chaotic. And the thought of losing your child because of unforeseen event is unbearable.
So what are the things you can do when you are attending a festival with your young kids?
1. Brief them to not go with strangers
You might think it only happens in TV, but the reality is, a lot of people are taking this opportunity to take away kids from their families during busy times. They are using different kinds of tricks and methods to get the attention of young kids. So it is better that you children knows that this might happen to them so they won’t easily trust strangers.
2. Make sure that they have a phone with them
This will come in handy in some cases that you will get separated from each other. Make sure that your kid knows how to contact all the saved number in the phone. Also, make sure that they know the importance of answering their phones while in the festival so you will always have an update of where they are.
3. Make sure that they are wearing something recognizable
Avoid making them wear something that will blend in the crowd. This will be a challenge for you later on because it is unavoidable that your kids will want to do something else. So you need to be able to observe them from afar and wearing something distinctive will make it easier for you to spot them even from a distance.
4. Do not lose sight of your children
This is basic but still, many parents still don’t know the importance of this one. At all times, do not remove your sight of your children. If possible, you should hold them properly all throughout the festival. This will give you peace of mind.
