It's a concept that's been observed for thousands of years (if not longer): the responsibility of protecting one's family.
In primitive times, it was to safeguard family members from hungry beasts in order to ensure the survival of the species. Over the last several centuries, keeping loved ones safe from disease or accidents was important on a practical level since these individuals contributed directly to the family's well-being by working on farms, selling goods at the market, or performing household chores.
But what does it mean to protect your family in the 21st century?
Keeping Them Safe When They Travel
Well, since the world is a much more ambulatory place than it used to be, it's vital that your loved ones are protected while they're on the go. That means buying them helmets for when they go bicycling, or purchasing elbow and knee pads for when they get on a skateboard (or a Segway or a hoverboard). And when you load your family into your car, you should make sure they fasten their seat belts or are strapped into their age-appropriate car seats before you start the ignition.
