I’m disgusted with the fact that I spent my childhood learning about world peace and the importance of being kind to one another, because as I grew up I reality decided to slap me in the face. It’s disgusting… all of this violence is just disgusting. It makes me want to puke.

The only thing to do when you hit a bump in the road is to push on through. You push and you push and you push, and at some point you’ll get over that bump. When you do everything will seem a lot brighter.

Rockford Parent: A Simple Thing Most Parents Probably Don’t Think to Do.

My sister-in-law shared this article on Facebook. Because it caught my attention, I decided to check it out. Whether you are a parent, a grandparent or someone who is just curious to give this a read, I do encourage it.

Here are my thoughts on the article.

I don’t have children yet, but because I work with young children I think that yes, this is a good idea, however I think that the amount of information being asked is a bit…much? I understand the child is young and unable to communicate but at the same time there is such thing as privacy. We constantly are warned about the dangers of giving out too much personal information and yet we are encouraged to do so. Kind of contradictory if you ask me. Now if your child has say, a medical situation where they may need immediate and possibly extra attention when in that sort of situation (such as issues with their heart/lungs), I guess one could say that the more information given to the rescue team the better. I feel that this is more of an opinion based matter. Whatever information you give is up to you. I think the important part is having that peace inside, knowing that you and your young passengers are going to be helped if a situation like this ever occurs.
