After hours spent in the classroom hard at work on lessons, most kids look forward to two things: lunch and recess. No matter the order of those activities, they are a great reward—and respite—from studying reading, writing, arithmetic, and all the other topics meant to turn our children into well-rounded adults. Along with that though, we expect playground equipment and surrounding areas to be much safer today.
If you are a concerned parent and want to make sure all precautions are taken while your kids are out playing, watch for these five issues regarding safety on the playground:
If your child is in a school setting, there should be an appropriate number of teachers assigned to playground duty. Many accidents could be prevented with better monitoring, as well as maintenance. Falls are the leading cause of injury, however, causing broken bones, lacerations, concussions, and traumatic brain injuries. If the playground is at a more private setting outside of school, make sure children are always being supervised.
