Netflights.com Giveaway.

There used to be an expression about children who never ventured far from their mother being 'tied to her by her Apron Strings.'  If only this were possible.

I have two young boys - aged nearly seven and three. When they were younger, I always kept them tethered by using old fashioned reins.  Nowadays keeping them both within sight is one of the most stressful parts of my life - even when we're only out walking, on the school run or the beach and around the shops.

It's so easy for a child to wander off when we're distracted, somewhere busy or unfamiliar that netflights.com have decided to give away 500 reusable ID wristbands - so that you can be contacted from the details written on them and be re-united quickly. Travelling with small (or some big) children can epitomise most parents' worst fears.

They have written an excellent blog post about how effective these ID bracelets can be - a simple solution for a lost child, who is perhaps too young or stressed to articulate for themselves and how they can also include any medical information too.

They use a system of something similar on Bournemouth beaches in the Summer and they really do work.

There are also some other responsible and useful articles worth checking out.

For your chance to win a pair of these wristbands, visit their Facebook page.

Who wants their children tied to us with copious strings, Apron or otherwise, anyway?

i.e. Visit their FB page!
