Looking through our week, I realized we had more outings than usual last week!
First, we had story time at our local library. We had a special guest that day as a local police officer came in to read the stories to the kids. I am so happy our librarian set this up! Kids are sometimes told if they misbehave, the policeman will come and get you. Police officers don’t want children to be afraid of them!! Police officers are there to help people, and it is important for kids to understand that even though police officers may look scary or intimidating, they are there to help. I was mildly embarrassed when the officer asked what police officers do, and Bear raised her hand and said “Arrest people.” Sigh.
