We all know the basics of how to keep our kids safe and healthy.

Car seats, childproofing, sunscreen - we all know what we are supposed to do.

How do you make sure you remember, though?

Reviewing some of these health and safety slogans can help. They can help us remember how to keep our kids safe and healthy, and also how to help teach our own kids to start learning to take care of themselves.

Safety Slogans

Will safety slogans really help you remember important safety advice?

Will they reinforce the advice for your kids?

They likely couldn't hurt, so give them a try:

Kids learn some of these safety slogans in school, but like anything else, if you don't review them once in a while, you forget them. When was the last time your child thought about the "Stop, drop and roll?" If it has been a while, would he know what to do if his clothing caught on fire?

Health Slogans

When it comes to health slogans, most people first think of "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." While the part of the phrase that suggests you eat an apple a day is certainly good advice, as apples are very nutritious foods, it likely won't help you avoid a visit to the doctor.

Following these other health slogans might keep you healthier though:

The "Cover your Cough" campaign is a good health slogan to help prevent the spread of germs from coughing and sneezing, especially during cold and flu season.

Reducing complicated health and safety messages to simple slogans isn't going to prevent or fix all of our parenting problems, but they can be useful reminders of the parenting advice that is available and that we have learned already.

They are a good way to reinforce those messages too.
