Summer Safety for Your Children

During summer vacation, there is less structure to your children’s days and more opportunity to find themselves in unsafe situations.  Summertime can be safe and fun if children understand the rules that can keep them from harm’s way.

Please don’t assume your child knows all these simple rules.  It takes one forgetful moment for a tragedy to occur.  Please review these tips with your children now and over the summer.

The best way to keep a child safe is for parents to be observant and good listeners.  Get to know their friends, learn about their activities, and spend time talking with them every day.  Working together, we can keep children safe.

  • Teach your kids the “check first” rule.  Before going anywhere, they need to check with you or the person in charge.
  • Explain to your children that they must never go to movies, malls, public restrooms, or parks alone.
  • Ask your kids to be careful where they play and to stay away from pools, canals, and lakes unless they are with a trusted adult.
  • Remind your kids not to play on busy streets or in deserted areas.
  • If your child is home alone, he or she must always keep the door locked.  Never tell anyone who calls that they are home alone.  Leave emergency numbers with instructions to dial 9-1-1 in case of an emergency.
  • If your child frequents the Internet (including but not limited to social media, message boards, gaming sites, or chat rooms), advise him or her not to provide any personal information (home address, telephone number, family details, etc.) to anyone unknown.
  • Teach your kids not to get into the car with anyone but you and trusted friends.
  • No matter the length of your journey, please buckle up everyone in your car at all times.
  • All bicycle riders should wear helmets and ride with traffic on the right side of the road.
  • If you own a gun, keep it out of sight and reach of children.  Always keep it unloaded.  Teach your kids the four basic rules of gun safety education: stop; don’t touch; leave the area; tell an adult.
