In a world where everything and everyone is accessible online, information get spread like a wildfire. One of the most important things for me as a mother is to keep my kids safe. To teach them the risks out there. Will I always be able to keep them from being harmed? I hope so but I don’t know. There is just too much out there to be sure. What I want to be sure of though, is to have taught them everything possible to keep them from becoming a victim. It’s all I can do.
In today’s Blast From The Past I share some shocking numbers and facts but also my thoughts about children and keeping them safe. My hopes, my ideas and also what I’m worried about.
I believe that the most important thing in our life is following your gut feeling. Not only to keep us safe but also in relation to trusting people in your normal surrounding, making friends, picking a place to go on vacation, all the way down to the food you pick to eat or not eat. For whatever reason over the time growing up we learned to ignore our gut feeling. We learned to “switch on our brain” and think things through. Because often the gut feeling doesn’t really make sense if you start analyzing it. I had a gut feeling moment on the weekend. Nothing major but it made me decide to re-post this piece again as a blast from the past.
