In-Home Monitoring & Prevention
Providing Parenting Resources
Interviewing potential child-care providers.
Many modern families find themselves in a financial situation where they must both work to provide an adequate home for their children. These families might often be left with little to no money to afford child care, leaving their children unattended, and risking to be charged with ‘neglectful supervision’. At Color Me SAFE, we believe that how hard you work is proof of how much you care for your children, and understand that you may have little time to search for an able and affordable daycare provider. Our extensive knowledge of the Metroplex allows us to decisively target your desired price range, area, and type of provider, be it at home or not.
Conducting in-home assessments.
A comprehensive family assessment is a “process,” not the completion of a “tool.” This does not mean that tools are superfluous; they are helpful in documenting needs or in stimulating the conversation about assessment issues. It does mean, however, that the engagement of family members in a discussion that is individualized to their situation is vital. Simply completing a form will not capture all that is needed for comprehensive assessment.
Providing families with home-safety ideas/suggestions in baby/child proofing the home.
Home is a place to relax, play and enjoy spending time with family. Of course, accidents happen, and there will be minor scrapes and bruises along the way, especially as kids grow and discover new things. And that’s OK. The problem is the more serious injuries that are often completely preventable. We can offer ideas and suggestions that will secure a home and can make it safer for everyone living there.
Introducing TIPS, TOOLS, and TACTICS for parents struggling with child-development from preschool to high school
The early years of a child’s life are very important for his or her health and development. Healthy development means that children of all abilities, including those with special health care needs, are able to grow up where their social, emotional and educational needs are met. Having a safe and loving home and spending time with family―playing, singing, reading, and talking―are very important. Proper nutrition, exercise, and sleep also can make a big difference.
