Information about what is being taught in school can be sent home so parents can reinforce skills with their children. Encouraging parents to take a walk with their child provides time for them to assess the child’s skills, such as whether the child pays attention to traffic, chooses appropriate places to walk, and has the ability to gauge gaps in traffic that allow for safe street crossing.
