In response to the growing number of child deaths resulting from babies and toddlers being left in hot cars, car seat maker Evenflo has developed a sensor to remind parents and other caregivers that there is a child in the vehicle. The SensorSafe technology is built into the chest clip of the child’s car seat, and it communicates wirelessly with the car’s diagnostic system using a special transmitter, so it can monitor when the car engine is turned off upon arriving at one’s destination. At that point, the system emits gentle tones to alert the driver of the child’s presence. One would hope that this kind of technology isn’t really needed, but in our busy world full of stressed-out, distracted parents, this extra assurance could save precious lives.

Expansive study finds major advantages for children of working moms

A new massive study recently conducted at Harvard Business School shows that adult women who grew up with mothers in the work force are more likely to have jobs, supervisory responsibility and earn higher wages than women raised by stay-at-home moms. Great news for moms who may be wondering if their children will suffer due to the absence of a stay-at-home mom. This research isn’t entirely groundbreaking. As the study points out, past research about maternal employment and how it relates to young children’s well-being has concluded that children of employed mothers do as well, if not better, at school, both in terms of academic achievement and in terms of behavior as peers who do have stay-at-home moms. However, that doesn’t mean that employed mothers don’t still worry that somehow their jobs outside the home may be harming their kids. Keep reading to learn about more of the key benefits of working mothers found in this study.
