Medication safety

Every year during National Poison Prevention Week (March 17 - 23), I think of my younger brother, Jim. And sometimes I even call to remind him of what happened 30 years ago.

TV and furniture safety

I want to tell you about a man who wears pink nail polish on his pinky finger. His name is Scott Deming. He's an international speaker, an author and a Buffalo Bills fan. But that's not why he wears the pink nail polish.

The winter season is upon us. Snow and wintery weather can be great fun for kids but can also lead to unpredictable and dangerous road conditions for drivers. That’s why Safe Kids and General Motors teamed up to bring you a few things to remember when driving with your little ones this winter.

Thirty-two years ago, my first daughter, Jennifer, was born. When it was time to leave the hospital, she was placed lovingly in the back seat of our car, resting comfortably in a very nice but hardly secure Moses basket.

Pedestrian safety

I'll never forget the first day of kindergarten for my oldest daughter, Jenny. Sure, summer was coming to an end, but it felt like the beginning of something really special. A new chapter in my daughter's life.

Heatstroke Image

The alarm to parents and caregivers to never leave a child alone in a car sounded louder last week after three more children died of heatstroke in cars. As summer temperatures reach record highs across the country, these preventable tragedies remind us to be even more vigilant to prevent heatstroke from killing another child.

Ally Carr is a girl with a passion. Much to my delight, my vivacious 15-year-old daughter is a talented and determined athlete who loves volleyball and softball and gives 110% to each of her teams.
