Heroes. Champions. Role Models.
Parents are the most influential people in their children’s lives, and your children want to be just like you. Even their boots are the same as yours. It’s your job to:
Be the Difference for your children.
Little eyes and little ears are always watching and listening, so show them that they can be safe by being safe yourself.
Easy ways to Be the Difference:
• Do all of your own tasks in a safe manner – set the standard.
• Remember your children don’t have the experience, skills or physical abilities that you do when assigning them tasks.
• Explain tasks and related hazards to your children.
• Closely supervise your children when they help with age-appropriate farm tasks.
• Create an environment of positive learning, teaching your children to complete tasks safely and efficiently.

Keep Kids Off Tractors
It is never okay for a child younger than 12 years to be on a tractor. The earliest a child should be on a tractor is when he or she is old enough to take and pass tractor safety educational classes and a child should never be an extra rider.
