Wireless Amber Alerts

This free text messaging service will send you an alert to your wireless phone whenever an Amber Alert has been initiated.  I have added my name to their list, because so many times I’ll see a roadside digital marquee several hours or days after the alert first went out.  Living in a huge metroplex, the likelihood of an Amber Alert here is higher, as disturbing as it may be.  With my name added to their subscription list, I can know immediately, and keep an eye out just as soon.   It takes about 10 seconds.  Please take a look.

While you’re keeping track of your health and fitness, take a look at this site to find what your child can do with you.  The database is comprehensive, tracking a child’s health standards and recommendations from the prenatal stage through age 12.  I am thankful for the ability to have all of this useful information at my disposal… pretty incredible, I think. – Amazing Children’s Book Resource

Do your children blow through books with hurricane-force curiosity and enjoyment?  If so, I hope you appreciate this free book and poster downloading database.  You’ll find many different levels of reading skill involved, all with a high standard of creativity and execution.  Let me know what you think!

While you’re reading, playing or exercising with your kids, sometimes the same old playlist gets boring. If you’re looking for fresh musicians and plentiful legal downloads, Musical Squash is where it’s at.

Free Home Depot Kids Workshop (ages 5-12)
