How You Can Ensure Playground Safety

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 08-01-2007

Try to watch over your child closely as much as you can when your child is in the playground. If you can’t, have someone trusted to keep a watch on your child. Ensure that he’s never unattended at a playground. For example, your child may enjoy swinging fast, but you need to be around to help him slow down and get off the swing. If there are too many kids in the playground, select a lesser crowded spot. This will help you keep track of your child’s activities easily, and you can keep a watch on him without being too interfering.

Choose your child’s playtime dress carefully. It should be free of drawstrings, loose threads, or other hanging material. A close fitting, yet comfortable dress free of such frills lessens the chances of clothing being caught in equipment, leading to strangulation.
