I lost my son at the beach: tips to prevent losing your child in a public place

Don't play with safety during your summer travel plans this year. Follow these tips to prevent losing your child in a public place.

Ah, lovely summer! The holidays are in full swing, with road trips, visits to grandma’s house, and days spent poolside and at the beach.

In my latest article for Travel Mamas, I go back in time nine years, to the gorgeous summer day that we lost sight of our son on a crowded beach. While it’s a scary story – every parent’s nightmare – it had a happy ending, thank goodness.

The experience taught us a few things about safety in public places, the importance of communication, and of having a contingency plan. I’m happy to share those safety tips to prevent losing your child in a public place. It’s not about being paranoid or afraid, it’s about being prepared.

Happy summer!
