More children ages 5 to 14 are seen in emergency rooms for injuries related to biking than any other sport. Helmets can reduce the risk of severe brain injuries by 88 percent – yet only 45 percent of children 14 and under usually wear a bike helmet. #bikesafety
Rule of thumb: Dress a child in one more layer than an adult would wear in the same conditions. More winter safety tips: http://www.parents.com/fun/activities/rules-for-safe-snow-days/?socsrc=pmmpin112812wwfLayering#page=2
It's not a coincidence that the season for extended daylight and outdoor activity is also the season for broken bones and accidental injuries. Summer vacation means many children are heading outdoors to play on the playground or participate in their favorite sports. Make sure you know how to keep your child playing safe. #childrensatl
Child Safety Tip - who is the "safest" stranger for kids to talk to if they get lost. I love this, especially the mom with kids!! so smart. I also like how it's an elderly COUPLE, not just one person..
Need to do this!! Positive reinforcement - Put a cotton ball, marble, pom-pom, etc. in every time you catch your child being good. Do something special when it's full. Nice little reminder for mom to notice the good and acknowledge it!
