We were having a family home evening lesson this week about emergency preparedness. We talked to the kids about being prepared for emergencies what to do in case of a fire, earthquake, tornado, etc. We made sure they knew they could find a police officer if they were lost and practiced telling their name, phone number, parents name, and street address. We asked them what we could do if there was a problem at our home, where we could go nearby that was safe, and they suggested we go to our friends' house that is just behind ours. Our 5 year old then said rather excitedly, "If you and Dad both died, we could go over to their house and have lots of sleepovers!"
Um, yeah. I guess we succeeded in not making our lesson too scary. Hopefully we prepared them a little bit still.
