Playground Safety

Play is a very important part of any child's development. However, play can be made safer with some simple Playground Safety guidelines.

Spending time at the playground can be a great way to help a child grow socially and creatively through play.

Reduce the risk of injury at the playground

  • Supervise your child closely and carefully. Encourage her to use age-appropriate equipment.
  • Avoid clothing with cords or drawstrings.
  • Inspect the playground for hazards such as broken or poorly maintained equipment. Ensure there are strong handrails and barriers to prevent falls.
  • Monkey bars are a danger to short kids. If your child is shorter than 1.5m, don't let him play on monkey bars. Being shorter, they dangle higher above the ground, and if they fall, they are more likely to suffer fractures or joint dislocation.

Teach your child the basic rules of safe play such as :

  • Do not walk across a moving swing or seesaw.
  • Slide down feet first and sitting up; only one person on the slide at a time.
  • No pushing or rough play. Wait for your turn.
  • Hold on with both hands when swinging or climbing.
  • Do not play at the playground after the rain as the equipment may be slippery.

Haha, here's a really funny Ted.com video which you have to take with a pinch of salt if you want to keep your kids (& house) in 1 piece: 5 Dangerous Things You Should Let Your Children Do - Gever Tulley

In his humorous and uplifting style, Gever Tulley debunks classic myths of childhood safety. With rampant fear mongering, is it any wonder that children are actually over-protected? Instead, Tulley believes the most effective way to keep children safe is to give them a little taste of danger.
