We’ve got you covered! Here's our summer survival kit for moms!
Earthquakes. Hurricanes. Wildfires. Floods. Natural disasters are often unpredictable. They can be scary and even life-changing, especially if your home, health, or community are impacted. In extreme cases, these events can have severe consequences, damaging homes and depleting access to basic needs like food, clothing, and clean drinking water in the following days and weeks that come. What if a natural disaster took place in your city tomorrow? Are you ready? The time to prepare is now.
School’s out for the summer (in most parts of the country)! If you’re a parent of school-aged children like me, I bet you’re not going to miss helping with homework, driving carpool, or packing lunchboxes for the next few months. What you might not be prepared for are the “I’m bored!” comments every five minutes. How can you keep your kids happy and maintain your sanity this summer? It’s easy: Stay active.
