    Yup, I like the Eddie Eagle program.
    My 6 and 8 year old have them memorized and practice it.

    I add to that whenever they want to see, touch, handle one of my guns, I will be more than happy to let them as I explain and deonstrate safe handling techniques.

    The Eddie Eagle program is very good. In our home, the kids, starting when they were about six were allowed to see any firearm in the house, under supervision, and never without permission. By the time they were six years and one month old, each of them knew how to check for a loaded chamber. They never found one, but they always looked. The only loaded gun was kept with a trigger lock on it and where they could not access it.
    Safety was the first course, check the chamber, watch where the muzzle is pointed, keep fingers off the trigger.
    We raised them to be safe and responsible, and they are raising their children the same way.

    0.) Always make sure a gun is empty
    1.) It's not a toy
    2.) She can't touch it
    3.) It's dangerous
    4.) Only Mom and Dad can touch it
    5.) Friends can't touch it
    6.) It can make you "bleed all over" (3yr old's words)
    7.) Always make sure a gun is empty
