Safety

At Home:

When planning ways to keep your child safe, remember that she is constantly changing. Review your family's home and habits often to make sure your safeguards remain appropriate for your child's age.

At Play:

Warm, sunny days are wonderful. It's great to exercise outside. The sun feels good on your skin. But what feels good can also harm you and your family. Make sure you are using adequate sun protection and following water safety precautions.

All Around:

Even if you create the perfect environment for your child inside your home, he or she will be spending a lot of time outside, where surroundings are somewhat less controllable. Your personal supervision will remain the most valuable protection.
