if all parents share the same common goal of child safety, they will
San Diego CA (PRWEB) April 6, 2006
In a recent correspondence between child safety organization Play Dates Secure.com http://www.playdatesecure.com and the American Academy of Pediatrics, the AAP praised the efforts of this new and innovative company.
“We appreciate your work in the service of children's safety and applaud your efforts in giving parents a resource to make protecting their children easier.” Stated an official of the AAP.
The American Academy of Pediatrics supports efforts to help parents ensure that their children are safe in others' homes. They currently are partnered with PAX on the ASK (Asking Saves Kids) Campaign which encourage all parents to take a stronger stance for child safety by asking if there is a gun in the homes where their children play.
Recent studies estimate that over 40% of all American households with children have at least one firearm, many of them unlocked and loaded, and every year thousands of children are killed or injured in shootings involving these guns.
As alarming as that may be, a recent study commissioned by Washington Ceasefire, found that although 71 percent of people thought it was a good idea to ask whether there's a gun in the homes where their kids play, 79 percent never do.
Play Date Securer’s focus is to ensure that the flow of vital information between parents is done with greater ease and consistency. The company provides parents with an online exchange of this information over a secure server. Information that experts agree should be exchanged prior to a play date occurring.
Play Date Secure also offers parents the opportunity to exchange additional information ranging from important medical information about their child to guidlines for video game useage. In addition, Play Date Secure offers links to all state sex offender registries.
“In order for parents to benefit from this program they need to sign up in droves” Stated Co-Founder Steve Lincoln “if all parents share the same common goal of child safety, they will” Lincoln continued.
Play Date Secure launched it’s website early this year.
