Are you willing to take advice from second graders?  Perhaps they have experienced just enough of life to share a bit of wisdom.  Take a look at some of the “Rules of Safety” created by my son’s second grade class.  I can’t help but wonder if some of them are speaking from experience.

*Clean up after yourself before someone slips.

*Don’t climb walls.

*No running in the halls.

*Don’t stay in the sun too long.

*Always clean your room or somebody might trip and fall.

*Stretch out before you dance.

*No running in the lunchroom.

*Don’t swallow hard candy whole.

*Don’t chew more gum than one.

*Do not throw food.

*Don’t jump off the swings.

*Be safe on the bus.

*Don’t throw snowballs at people.

*Never punch eny butty.

*Look out for cars when you cross the street.

*Always wear a helmet when you are skating.

*No running in the hole cuz sum wun will get hurt.

And we must all remember…

*Never hold the cat for a long time!
