With summer in full swing your child will be spending more time at home. That means it's important to make sure your home is tween proof, or put another way, that you've childproofed for a preteen.
Make sure your tween can access the first-aid kit and knows how to use everything in it. It's also important your child know what to do in an emergency, if you're not home.
It's also a good idea to keep tobacco, alcohol and even prescription medications where your child (or his friends) can't get to them.
Most of all, sit down and have a talk with your child about your expectations and safety rules. That will go a long way in keeping him safe, during summer and the rest of the year as well.
