I'm a writer for Parents magazine (the largest circulation national magazine for parents of young children), and I'm doing a story on lost children: ways to prevent your young children from getting lost and what to do when you lose them anyway. Since losing a child at an amusement park is a big fear, I'd love to interview current or former cast members who could share their advice for parents when it comes to visiting Disney parks. You can be anonymous in the piece. My questions would include: Does it help if a parent has a photograph of a child from that day? Does it help if the child has a bracelet with the parentís phone number? Other things that are helpful? What should a parent should do if theyíve lost a child (can they tell any employee, even the food service ones?) What are some of the most common places/scenarios where parents lose children (during parades? On crowded days? In the restroom? Etc.). What are the biggest mistake that parents make when it comes to losing their kids? If you can help, please contact me at michellecrouchwriter(at)gmail(dot)com. I'm sure other folks would love to see your tips posted here, too.
Thanks so much!
