Passwords are meant to allow access only to individuals who are privileged enough to know them. We have passwords to protect our bank accounts, computers, email and other important information.
So, why not give the same level of protection to those who matter most to us… our children.
I know what you must be thinking… “a child isn’t computerized… how can I protect them with a password?”
You can create a “family password” that is only known by the members of your family. It should be something that can be remembered even by your kids.
Then, in situations where you are not able to be with them, they will have an added level of protection. For example, if your child needs to be picked up from school by someone other than you, they can know to ask the person for the “password”. If they don’t know it, the child will know not to go with them. If the person does know the password, your son or daughter will know it’s OK to go.
Other uses for the “family password” are only limited by your creativity.
