Health Tip: Keep Kids Safe Outdoors

Always make sure they're supervised

(HealthDay News) -- A few rules from parents or guardians can help keep children safe while they get exercise and enjoy the great outdoors.

The extension.org website suggests:

  • Never allow children to play outside without supervision.
  • Explain to children that they should never play near a street or driveway.
  • Teach children to ask an adult for help for any object that rolls into the street or driveway.
  • Regularly inspect outdoor play areas, removing hazards such as sharp tools, lawn equipment, animal feces, sharp branches and trash.
