"I was angry at myself for not protecting my child."

“I was angry at myself for not protecting my child.”

This would seem a natural reaction for any parent.  We are all focused on protecting our children and making sure they are strong and healthy.

However, the lead in the paint that made her daughter Lucy sick was not her fault. Yet Kristin was angry at both herself and her husband. 

Then anxiety set in and she took action. She went into “Mama Bear” mode.

Lead in Homes

Hundreds of Kent County children are needlessly poisoned by lead every year. To help children thrive and succeed in life, we need to ensure that the homes where they live are free from lead hazards. Lead poisoning is 100% preventable. The Healthy Homes Coalition helps make homes lead safe so children are protected.
