• Do not carry too many packages-lock them in your car trunk or not in plain view  
  • Avoid carrying large amounts of cash
  • Keep credit slips-tear & discard later
  • Wear your purse strapped across your body and wallets in front pocket
  • Use credit or bank ATM card or checks rather than carrying cash.
  • If ATM is used, use as “credit” so you do not have to use your PIN number
  • If you need an ATM, use one located in a mall, store, or well-lighted location
  • In public restrooms-do not hang a purse on handles/hooks and never on the floor
  • Always go with your child when taking them to the restroom
  • Teach your child never to talk to or go anywhere with strangers
  • Use the shopping cart safety belt for a child
  • On escalators-hold a child’s hand facing them forward and make sure shoes are tied

Even if you have a full list of shopping, take a break with the kids even if it's a brief ice skating break at a local holiday ice skating rink, have a coffee and holiday desert with your kids, sing Christmas songs along the way. Making sure your children are buckled safety. Have a safe and Happy Holiday!

    Dr. Safety
         As an injury and neuroepidmeiologist, Master Certified Health Education Specialist, Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician and a father, I have obtained a passion to help educate the public on how to prevent injuries and maintain healthy lifestyles for communities and future generations.  
         Throughout my years of graduate and professional education in public health, neuroscience, public policy and intergovernmental management, from the University of Oxford, England, George Washington University, Washington D.C., and the University of Southern California, I have applied a multidisciplinary approach to educate not only the public as a community benefit but also to develop sustainable public health injury prevention programs to state and local governments, schools, hospitals and organizations to help promote safety and healthy lifestyles.
      I also use a personal approach to educating parents and children by empowering them so they can make healthier and safer choices in life and have a happier life and improve communities.
        I appear as a guest on a regular basis with LaFern Cusack on the ESPN Experience (AM710) and Radio Disney Playground (AM1110).
