Survey: Parents Need the Facts About Injury Dangers to Kids

Big Grin  Survey: Parents Need the Facts About Injury Dangers to Kids
A national survey of 1000 parents found that many don't know key facts regarding possible safety hazards for children.

Among the survey's findings: One-in three parents are unaware that children can drown in as little as 2 inches of water. Less than 1 / 2 of parents know drops are the major cause of accidental injuries to toddlers. And more than half under-estimate how long children must be in a booster seat.

'Particularly in the area of car safety seat application, adult information will decrease as kiddies age,' said Dr. Michael Gittelman, an er pediatrician and medical adviser to 'Access it Board with Child Safety,' a national child injury prevention effort. 'Parents need precise information regarding the various unintentional injury risks to children as they develop, from infant stage to toddlers to kids and entirely through adolescence.'

Accidental injuries are the major cause of death for U.S. Kids ages 1-4 and under. 'Get on Board with Child Safety' was headed by the children's brand 'Safety 1st' and the National Association of Children's Hospitals and Related Institutions. They offer these tips for parents:

* Work with a booster seat for children around 8 years or 80 pounds. Unless they are in booster seats person seat straps tend not to fit such children correctly. If the gear sits excessive in the abdominal and neck areas, it could cause serious injuries in a car accident. Your youngster is about half as likely to be injured when utilizing a booster seat instead of a seat belt alone. To get additional information, consider checking out: site link.

* Always have your kids wear a helmet. Bike incidents deliver every year thousands and thousands of young ones ages 5 to 14 to the emergency room. My friend found out about open in a new browser window by searching the Sydney Post.

* Supervise the trampoline. Roughly 90,000 young ones visit the er each year after having a trampoline harm. Trampolines are even more dangerous when numerous kids are getting at once or whenever a daughter or son does somersaults.

* Never leave children alone in or close to the water. Mount gates around pools and use doorknob handles to avoid youngsters from getting out of your house and into water without supervision. Often strain little pools when not in supervised use..
