The tragic death of Colorado 10 year old Jessica Ridgeway following an abduction has heightened everyone’s awareness about the risks of predators and the need to protect our kids. Our local NBC affiliate (9News) recently hosted an important Twitter chat on childhood safety. I was honored to participate on behalf of Children’s Hospital Colorado, joining newscasters from 9News, the Denver Police Department, and several outstanding parenting experts. If you have young kids, take a few minutes to read through the 2 hour chat to find helpful resources and useful advice. The world is not the same as when we were kids, and we owe it to our kids to be informed and prepared.
