If your child uses Uncle Mike, Miss Anne, Aunt Susie, Josh or Kelly, then do they know the last names of the adults in their life? Is it important?

Whether your child uses Miss Judy, Mike, or Aunt Lindsey they only know the adult’s first name. In the case of an emergency or unique situation would your child know the last names of the people they might need to contact? Do they know where to find an address book or list of this information?  Many of us store this information on our personal computers and cell phones.

If you were not available and your child needed to contact a close friend or neighbor how would they find the information? Do you have an address book-phone book near a land line or located somewhere your child could easily find? The list may include first and last names, the name your child uses when speaking with them, names of the children in the family (to assist in identifying the family), mobile and landline numbers and address.

 

This is not the same as baby sitter list, which is current information including your cell numbers, the location or restaurant you can be found, location of a first aid kit, eating instructions, etc.

Create an address book your child could use.

I remember experiencing just such an emergency situation in middle school. I called a close family friend Aunt and I had forgotten her last name. Embarrassed, I went through my mother’s address book page by page to find her information.
