Summer is full of activities that your child should enjoy to the fullest. But, with a lot of fun it also comes a lot of responsibility. We have created a list of four key tips every parent should take into account this summer.
- Public pools, backyard pools, the beach and lakes are all great places for swimming, but have different safety challenges — be familiar with them. Also, only swim when there is a lifeguard or an adult is present.
- Avoid having your children exposed during the strongest rays of the day between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Seek shade for your children. Use sunscreen consistently. Make sure the label says it contains both UVA and UVB protection.
- Keep small children away from the barbeque; it’s easy for them to get burned. Never leave the grill unattended. Keep matches and lighters away from children.
- When riding a bike, everyone in your family should wear a helmet; in many states, it’s required.
Enjoy your summer!
