Why didn’t I think of this before?

This was an idea that was so simple, I can’t believe I haven’t thought of it before:

Family Business Cards!

As a parent, how many times have you met the parents of your child’s friends?  It’s all handshakes and rushing to do what ever it is you do, and you can’t remember even your name after the meeting. Or your son or daughter just brought home a new friend and you know nothing about how to contact his or her parents if there is a problem.

Well I decided to come up with a personal business card that has our names and contact information on it.  I can give a few to the kids and they can give them to their friends’ parents, or when at a school function or soccer game, I can just hand them to the other parents myself.  Now I don’t have to worry about whether or not the other parents know how to get in touch with me.  If all parents did this, then I wouldn’t have to worry about remembering names, addresses, phone numbers.  I can e-mail to coordinate play dates and sleep overs.

I say give this a shot…

  1. What a great idea! Was just thinking that my kid is meeting so many new friends at Boy Scouts (and wants to invite them to birthday)…will have to try this out!

  2. This is a neat idea. Better than trying to write it down on a random piece of paper.
