Keep the Kids Safe and Sound During the Summer

Posted by Debra Gray-Elliott at 6:57 AM 0 comments

Summer is right around the corner. Kids are filled with anticipation and parents are filled with dread. How do you keep your child healthy during the summer? Keeping your child well during hot summer months can be daunting, but if you follow these tips, you and your child will have a stress-free, fun-filled summer. You can relax and your kid can be a kid.

The hot summer can bring on a lot of health issues for your child, but the best way to keep them safe and sound is to follow the RULES

  • Remind your kids of summer hazards. The hot summer brings out snakes and a variety of insects. These creatures like to hide in dark places. Kids like to explore where they shouldn't. It's your job as a parent to be on guard. The best way to keep them safe from harm is to remind your child to stop, look, and listen.  Practice these safety habits with your child. Have them stop before they go wandering off into the unknown. Make them look before they leap. Lastly, make your child listen. If he or she is aware of their surroundings, they are less likely to get bitten or stung.

  • Use common sense. Kids are natural born curiosity machines,especially in the summer when they are bored. They want to explore and get into trouble. Keeping your child out of harm's way is a task. You have to teach him or her to use their common sense. Remember, if something doesn't look right, then it will hurt your child.  The best way to protect them from harm is to repeat the warning signs, remind them of danger, and require frequent check-ins. 

  • Listen to your child. The best way to keep your child safe and sound during the summer is to listen. Kids will let you know when something isn't right. Their tone changes when they're in danger. Keep your ears open and your child safe.

  • Employ other parents and kids. Form a summer neighborhood watch. More sets of eyes are better than one. If your child is being watched constantly, the less likely he or she will get hurt.

  • Stabilize your child's surroundings. If your child's environment is free from debris and danger, he or she can enjoy their summer without worry. You can breath a sigh of relief. Your main job during the summer is to keep your child safe and sound.
If you are your child follow the RULES, you both will have a stress-free and fun-filled summer.
