Parking lots can be a very scary place, especially if you have kids. I’m sure you have heard stories of the scary, sometimes fatal incidents that have occurred to children in parking lots. Unfortunately, some accidents are completely unavoidable… and the only thing you can do is teach/train your children to be safe in areas where vehicles are located.
My sister emailed me and told me to check out Parking Pal. She said that this is a product she wished she had when babysitting her friend’s children. Whenever my sister recommends something, I am always interested in checking it out (she has phenomenal taste).
When I visited the website, I immediately knew this was a product I wanted for my family. With two young children, who think they are “BIG”, I knew the Parking Pal would help me encourage them to stay close to the car.
The Parking Pal is a colorful magnet that aids children in staying near you and away from moving vehicles.
Why use the Parking Pal Magnet?
- Easy to use:
- Stick Parking Pal to the side of your vehicle where you know you want your child to be located.
- Place the child’s hand on the Parking Pal (I encourage my kids to give the car a “high five” before entering. They know where they need to go, and don’t wonder into the street or parking lot!)
It’s nice to have a visual aid on the car helping my kids learn where to be when moving vehicles are near. Parking Pal has helped create an easy routine for me and the kids when loading and unloading the car.
HOW IT CAME ABOUT:
One mother residing in Virginia began to think of ways to keep her kids focused so the chance of them bolting or wondering in parking lots would be eliminated. She created the Parking Pal and IT WORKED! Austin, her 5-year old, and Aiden, her 3-year old, love the Parking Pal. When getting out of or coming back to the vehicle they go directly to it, put their hand on it, fiddle around with it and chat with each other while she gets her youngest into his stroller or back into his car seat. Until all vehicles are equipped with back-up cameras and all until all drivers remember to pay careful attention in parking lots, this is a great aid in keeping your child safer.
