Cookies and Milk with a Cop

This weekend, my son and I attended a FREE event at our locol library called “Cookies ๐Ÿช and milk with a Cop ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ”. First let me tell you how obsessed my child is with officers and utility vehicles (Police officers and cars, firefighters and fire trucks etc.), so this was a golden opportunity for him to interact with a police officer  and for us to get in some reading/library time (double score!)

With all that is going on today and the negative image of Police Officers because of the injustices of minorities, I felt this was important for my son- a black boy to know that all Police Officers are not bad. I do not want him tainted with the image that ALL police officers are out to gun him down. He will know that their primary purpose is to serve and protect. Cookies and milk with a cop is a time for children to interact with local police officers in a fun and informative environment.

  3. What an awesome event! And I love that you’re introducing him to the message too. My son is obsessed with Firetrucks and Police cars as well (I don’t think he’s associated officers and firefighters with the vehicles quite yet) and I don’t want him fearing all of them either!

    1. Thank you for reading! We loved it and I loved the fact that it was FREE was well ๐Ÿ˜œ We have to teach our kids not to fear law enforcement because of our society today… hope you find an event close to you!
