Are Your Kids Ready To Be Home Alone For PD DAYS? Safety Tree Is Here To Help – Enter To Win


With upcoming PD Days and Christmas Break right around the corner, are you wondering if they are at the right age to stay home alone?

Does the thought of this conjure up images in your mind of KEVIN DURING THE HOME ALONE MOVIE?


 
Safety Tree can assist with your decision making by making sure they are properly prepared when the time comes.

As mentioned in our SAFETY TREE CLASSES FOR KIDS post, Safety Tree offers classes to prepare them for the challenges of being home alone.


This winter they are helping families get ready by offering 3 different course at 4 different venues for a variety of age groups. Some of them are even day programs on the PD DAY happening on November 18, 2016.

    1. Yes, just talking to them is not enough. That is why we do a lot of role playing and testing them. It is amazing how trusting some children are. Unfortunately it is a scary world out there:(
