Learn how to keep your kids safe from these summer dangers.

Keeping your kids safe is a top priority. However, with the summer season, there are plenty of risks for your kids in and around your home. Take the necessary precautions to keep your children as safe as possible with these summer tips for child safety.

Barbecue Safety.

Summer barbecues are a staple of the season. However, it’s important to educate your kids about grilling safety. Teach your kids about barbecues and how they work. Explain that they get very hot and can be a fire danger. Establish at least a three-foot perimeter around the grill to keep kids safe. Additionally, when using the grill, ensure that you keep an eye on it. That way you can intervene when there are any curious kids (and pets!) near the barbecue.

Pool Safety.

Taking a dip in the pool is a great way to cool off this summer. However, it only takes a few seconds for a child to drown in as little as one inch of water. Teach your kids to swim, and never let your kids swim alone. Always watch so that you can step in during an emergency.

Boating Safety.

Spending the day on a boat is a great way to spend a summer day. However, when kids are around, it’s important to review boating safety with them. Ensure that your child is wearing the proper lifejacket at all times.

Heat Safety.

Hot summer temperatures can be dangerous. Prevent any heat-related illnesses like heat exhaustion or sun stroke to keep your kids safe. Minimize exposure to the sun by avoiding the sun between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. when the sun is at its strongest. Stay hydrated, wear plenty of sun screen, and stay in the shade whenever possible.
