Kids in a Park



Kids playing in Park

 Playgrounds and outdoor play equipment offer kids fresh air, friends, and exercise. So it's important for parents to make sure that faulty equipment, improper surfaces, and careless behavior don't ruin the fun.Kids also play hard when they are at playgrounds. so we need to keep eye on them every time because kids don't care about injury part they just care about play 

 

 

  Adult supervision can help prevent injuries by making sure kids properly use playground equipment and don't engage in unsafe behavior around it. If an injury does occur, an adult can assist the child and administer any needed first aid right away.Before you visit a playground, check to make sure that play areas are designed to allow an adult to clearly see kids while they're playing on all the equipment.

 

Ground protocols

  • Dress properly
                     I always recommend properly fitting t-shirts and shorts for kids at the park.
  • Watch out for hot surfaces
                   it was so hot metal surfaces including picnic tables, swing and monkey bars. 
  • Wear sunscreen and apply it at home.
                  A child who gets sunburned or overheated at the park risks sunstroke, dehydration and     they can fall or injure themselves from dizziness related to these things.  
  • Avoid the sand.
                children play in the sand at the park. You never know what kinds of bacteria or other things are in that sand.
  •  Bring water and snacks.
                 It is important to stay hydrated and even more crucial on those hot, summer days.  
  • Stranger danger
                children know not to talk to strangers, but this can be tough at the park when all of the kids are playing with each other.
  • Surfaces

    the surface under the playground equipment should be soft enough and thick enough to soften the impact of a child's fall.
