About this blog

There may be no other job that comes with as complete a makeover of the physical objects in your life than parenting. You buy stuff for your kids to sleep on, eat with, play with, look adorable in, throw up, grow out of, and -- every parent's favorite -- ignore and play instead with the box it came in.

But it seems every day there's a new warning about safety. In this blog, the Chicago parent staff will be monitoring government recalls, manufacturer announcements, and yes, tips from you, from real parents about safety concerns. Every Friday, we'll post the week's recalls and other safety concerns right here.
