It is that time again, time for the kids to go back to school! This has been another hard time for us. Joshua loved school, and he loved football! We are sad that we won’t be out cheering on #54 for this year.
With the school year starting back up, we want you to all be aware of the things that your children are learning at school. This is where we believe Joshua learned about the choking game. We encourage everyone to keep an eye on their children, as well as their friends. Not all things taught in school are beneficial. We would like to encourage you to go through our site, and share our information with others. We don’t want this to happen to any more families. We hear of other stories all of the time, and there has to be an end put to this deadly ‘game’ that children are participating in.
Remember that it isn’t “bad kids” who are doing this. It has been found that it is the outgoing, athletic, smart, and all around good kids. Parents can never know their children too well. Take the time to talk to your children about what is happening, or what they learned at school, and don’t let them use the line, “nothing”. You know they aren’t just sitting in a desk all day not doing anything. Be involved in their lives.
We hope that everyone with children heading back to school has a great start to their school years! Remember that you can never be “too loving” as a parent. Hug and kiss your children, and never forget to tell them how much you love them, even if they are already a sleep.
Please keep doing your part in helping us spread awareness by telling someone you know, or don’t know, about the choking game. You could save a life.
