New book shows you how to “lost-proof” a child

Each day in the United States, more than2,000 children get lost, some in the malls, some in the woods. Most lost situations last only a few terrifying minutes until the child is found, others may take hours or days. The Center to Prevent Lost Children states that seven out of 10 children will get lost at least once and that less than nine percent of parents are prepared for a lost child situation.

J. Wayne Fears has written a book that tells parents and guardians of children, from toddlers to teens, how-to “lost-proof” their children in a variety of settings including public outdoor recreation areas, shopping malls, amusement parks, wilderness areas and other places of public gathering. “How to Lost-Proof Your Child” explains how to create a plan that will lost-proof the child, how-to teach children what to do if they become lost and what the parent or guardian should do if a child is lost.

The book is $8.95; for more, visit www.protoolindustries.net.
