As a parent, I thought I would never lose a child at a public place.
Of course, I had heard tales of children wandering off – not paying attention and then finding themselves lost in a crowd. Nonetheless, when I found the MeFinder child safety wristband and read the concept behind “Show and Tell” I knew this was a product we needed to carry in our store for traveling families.
First, a dose of reality. I NEVER thought I would lose a child. But then it happened. One day out at Magic Kingdom Disney theme park, we found ourselves in line waiting for a character autograph. I turned around and my son had vanished. For about 5 minutes I scanned all around – my son couldn’t have gotten too far in just 30-60 seconds. When I found him (thankfully only a few minutes later), he was standing in the middle of a crowded walkway – himself scanning for signs of his parents. The look on his face showed that he was just a little nervous – a little while longer and I imagine he would have practiced what we taught him earlier that week when we gave him the MeFinder.
“Son, if you ever get lost and can’t find mommy or daddy, here’s what you should do:”
* don’t panic, take a deep breath, don’t worry
* find a safe adult (like a security guard, park worker, or another parent with children)
* show them your “watch” (the MeFinder), and
* tell them to call the number on your “watch” (my cell phone number I had programmed before the trip)
The Show and Tell (TM) system is such an easy way to keep your children safe. It’s one of the most affordable, yet effective, ways to make sure your child doesn’t go through a long and possibly traumatic experience.
Plus… the kids LOVED wearing their MeFinder. We used it all throughout our trip to Disney, and still use it for lots of events around town (like a recent charity walk). The kids ask to wear the MeFinder!
