Healthy Tips: Be Safe During Playtime

Summer Safety: Tips for Parents

Be Safe During Playtime

• Make sure kids wear helmets when riding a bike, skating, skateboarding, or otherwise riding a wheeled vehicle. A properly fitted helmet can prevent serious head injury, making it a crucial safety precaution.

• Other pads for knees, wrists, and elbows can also be useful for preventing scrapes, cuts, and fractures in case of falls.

• Make sure play equipment in your yard or at the park is safe for use.

• Let children know it’s unsafe to play or hide in enclosed spaces like old appliances, coolers, or car trunks.
