Summer Safety Tips for Parents and Kids

PowerPoint Presentation:

When the cold weather recedes and families start spending more time outside again, it's vital to consider common safety topics to make sure that the family knows the best way to stay safe with various outdoor activities. No matter what type of pursuit the kids might enjoy, whether it's playing on the swing-set in the backyard or swimming in the neighborhood pool, there are a few safety tips for kids that children need to know to enhance summer safety in SC before taking part in those fun activities. Helmets and Biking A helmet is as necessary to bike riding as a seatbelt is to sitting in a moving car. A child should always associate riding a bike with wearing a helmet, and the best example a child may see are his parents wearing helmets, too. Helmets are also necessary when a child is on a skateboard or scooter. A helmet needs to fit correctly, and when making the purchase of a child's helmet, it's important to try it on to make sure it's not going to move around too much or fall off. There are also subtle differences in helmets which might require a specific helmet purchase depending in the activity in which the kids might participate.

Streets and Vigilance One of the first safety tips a child will hear in school is that he or she shouldn't talk to strangers. The second set of safety tips for kids will usually involve a lesson on how to cross the street correctly. Kids should stay out of the street as general practice, but it's necessary that each time the street requires crossing, young children have a partner with them. In addition, it's vital to make sure kids don't run across the street, and that eye contact is always made with the drivers of stationary vehicles to determine whether that person is aware of a pedestrian. Children should also refrain from hurtling out into traffic from between cars or bushes. Tick Bites and Hiking Although the danger of ticks wasn't considered too serious several years ago, recent increased rates of Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever have made it necessary to warn kids about the danger of wooded areas and overgrown brush where ticks might hide. In areas where there may be dense concentrations of ticks, it's a good idea to consider wearing long pants and socks to create a barrier between the ticks and the legs. Using a bug repellent is also advisable for the kids and pets. Lastly, reducing contact with overgrown areas makes it easier to improve summer safety in SC and avoid tick infestation.

Water Safety Lessons Jumping in the pool on a hot summer's day is one of the best activities for children and their parents, but water safety is essential for keeping everyone safe in the water. One of the most important elements of summer safety in SC actually impacts parents the most, since it's vital to consider that it doesn't take a deep pool to create a danger for drowning. Unfortunately, even very shallow pools represent a drowning danger, so parents must be exceptionally vigilant when their kids are in the pool. It's also important for parents to remain within a few feet of their children at all times while the tykes are swimming. The preceding topics represent just a few of the safety tips for kids parents should share with their kids when the summer arrives. Even though kids think of the summer as a time to play, it's also the perfect time for valuable lessons in safe behavior. Priority 1 Security is dedicated to keeping families in SC safe year round.
