Never Leave Your Baby Alone - Even for a Few Minutes


There are many good reasons to have someone watching your baby and never
leave them alone. Young children, especially toddlers, love getting into things. Their curiosity is natural - it's the way they all learn. As a parent, you have to make sure your child doesn't accidentally hurt himself.

If you can't care for your baby, call the Family Crisis Center and Crisis Nursery for help and emergency child care: 1-888-435-7553.
