How do you keep your kids safe during pool season?
It's June, and that means pool season is under way. Two of Dearborn's pools–Dunworth and Ford Woods–opened over Memorial Day weekend. But with the opening of pools comes the responsibility of making sure kids are ready for swimming. Nose plugs, sunscreen, floaties–it's all part of being safe for the season. This week on Moms Talk, let's talk swimming. How early do you start taking your kids to swim lessons, and where? What rules do you teach them about pool safety? And when do you let go and trust that they'll be all right?
When Fluffy or Fido don't make it, sometimes the hardest part is explaining it to your kids.
Every animal lover remembers the death of their first pet. Whether it was a 22-year-old cat who had lived as long as she possibly could, or a beloved dog whose life was cut too short after a tragedy, no one ever forgets losing a pet. This week on Moms Talk, we want to hear how Dearborn parents make the best of a bad situation: How do you talk to your kids about the death of a pet? Do you sugarcoat it with stories of doggy and kitty heaven, or lay it down straight? Do you bring in a replacement pet right away to soothe the pain, or let them learn to grieve? Or, even riskier, do you lie and say that Rex ran away? Share your tips, stories and plans here on Moms Talk!
