Family: Safety at the Park

Leave a Comment
Every parent takes their children to the park from time to time. The park can be a fun and exciting place for children of all ages but if not careful it can also be a dangerous place. A place where if safety measure aren't taken a child can get lost or hurt pretty badly. Here are a few tips to ensure that your child stays safe on your next trip to the park.

Before letting your children run free be sure to check the equipment. There are some messed up people out there and you never know what they leave on the playground for your innocent children to find.

Most parks have many sections that cater to children of different age groups. When we go to the park my oldest son likes to play Basketball while my young one likes to play on the equipment. If this is the case for you be sure to position yourself in a place where you are able to clearly see both children.

Last is supervision. With all of the distractions we have today between work, our cell phones and wanting a few minutes to ourselves to read a good book it can be hard to keep your focus on your children. When you go to the park it's a great time to just enjoy your family and not worry about the every day stresses of life. Do just that. Put away the phone or laptop that can hold your attention, and watch your children as they laugh and play to their hearts content. Enjoy the moment!
