Parents whose young children are going to nursery or school for the first time in September are advised to give them a little bit of freedom when walking to and from home.
Clippasafe has been designing and manufacturing child safety products for more than 50 years, helping to keep youngsters out of danger, both in the home and while out and about.
With many children going to nursery or school for the first time this September, MD Roger Cheetham has some words of advice.
“Going to nursery or school is often a stressful time for young children and for parents alike, but there are some simple tips we can offer,” says Roger.
“Give your children little backpacks and get them to pack them with their favourite toys the night before. There’s also enough room for a couple of books and a packed lunch. Doing this gives children a sense of responsibility.
“When you are walking to school or nursery, young children may want to walk on ahead, but, understandably, many parents will worry that the children will wander off too quickly or go too close to the side of the road.
“An easy way to get over this is to use harnesses. Some reins fit around a child’s wrist, but there are some backpacks, like ours, that have detachable lead reins fitted – whichever parents use, both give peace of mind.”
Clippasafe’s Mini Back Packs, in Blue/Red and Pink, have been created especially with young children in mind, so that they can enjoy the responsibility of carrying a couple of books or favourite toys.
Retailing at £11.99, the backpacks have three zipped compartments and net pockets on either side for smaller items.
The Mini Back Packs, and Clippasafe’s extensive range of harnesses and wrist links, are available through stockists or by visiting www.clippasafe.co.uk
