Healthy Tips: Teach Kids Playground Safety

The playground is a place for fun and a good time, but your kids can get wound if they don't practice basic playground safety. The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons offer these suggestions:

  • Children should only play on the playground when equipment is dried out, and while wearing sturdy, well-fitted shoes.
  • When playing on a slide, children should slide down one at a time, and always feet first. Move away from the slide as soon as they arrive at the bottom.
  • Kids should grab onto hand rails for carry, and take care when climbing stairs.
  • Children should be careful around swings to avoid getting hit, and never stand up while swinging. Wait until the swing stops before getting off.
