How many times did you lose your kids before coming up with this?

He makes the announcements for lost kids at Disneyland.

Or it could be just be their time, you gotta let go at some point.

At least you'll have the picture to remember them by. It's probably for the best.

Use a sharpie to write your mobile number on them if they are too little to remember it. If they get lost and found by staff the staff will know how to contact you to let you know your kid is safe.

Wouldn’t a bracelet with an id tag like you see on dogs be better than inking your kid every time you go somewhere? For that matter, maybe getting a dog would be better option for people who are regularly losing their kids.

Bracelets fall off or get lost. Sharpie doesn't.

Makes it easier for the ransom caller.

This would make me insanely anxious.

Another good tip is to identify with them where to go if they get lost. If there is a specific easy to find meeting point then everyone can find each other. This is more for a bit older kids who can find their way to the pre deterpplace

I have to think any parent in this day in age already has a TON of pictures of their kids on their phone

Edit:posted before fully reading…what they’re wearing at the time is a fair tip

Also, don’t forget to attach them an iEarring so you can track them at all times!

Or maybe keep an eye on your kids.....

This reminds me of the commercial o hear on the radio.

"Put something IMPORTANT in the back seat of your car, so you don't forget your children"...


Tiny_Rat t1_iy4okvs wrote

Have you ever babysat a kid, or worse, multiple kids? It only takes a second of distraction for a toddler to disappear in a crowd.

And that commercial you hear on the radio sounds a lot less stupid when you realize that the parents of most babies are incredibly sleep deprived, and sleep deprivation often causes the brain to be prone to running on autopilot for common tasks. That makes it very easy for someone to forget about anything not part of the default routine, like the baby in the backseat when they'd normally be at daycare. It has little to do with carelessness or intent. Here is a good article about it

I realize that it's comforting to think that accidents only happen people who did something to deserve it, but thats not how the world works. Sometimes, bad things still happen even if you're trying to do everything right.
