Single Parents: Worries & Concerns
Tonight after a difficult week of illness, and a strangely intense headache, an old fear reappears. What happens if I somehow lose consciousness (knocked myself out from a fall, passed out from extreme illness, etc etc) and my little boy is in the house alone? What if I'm knocked out and the house is on fire or there's an earthquake? What if a bad guy breaks in and knocks me out or worse? How will anyone know he's in danger? The door's still too hard to open on his own. How will he get out? Sure, sounds dramatic, but what if? Now that he's a big strong 3 1/2 year old he's almost ready to handle ''dial 911'' training, which is a relief since there hasn't been an answer to this dilemma for the last 3 1/2 years. What have other single parent's of young children come up with? I'm not looking for hand-holding on the worry element, more for the real strategies other single parents have cooked up. Thanks. Brynn
I picked up a book recently called ''Safe Child'' and it is full of practical ideas, suggestions and fun excercises to practice with your kids. Hope this helps! Fellow worrier
