CHILD SAFETY MONTH: CHILD PROOF YOUR HOME & VEHICLE
September is all about safety being that we are observing both National Baby Safety Month and National Child Passenger Month! Both campaigns were created and are geared to educate parents and/or caregivers on the importance of selecting and using the right products for young children.
Did you know that according to the National Auto Dealers Association (NADA), motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for school-aged children? Since starting their campaign in 2003, the NADA have checked million of car seats and a whopping nine of ten were improperly installed or needed replacement.
In addition, a report by Toyota and the Cincinnatti Children’s Hospital Medical Center states that African American children found that auto accidents are the number one injury-related cause of death for black children under 14 because they are not wearing their seatbelts.
Also, no matter how well you think you childproofed your home, as your children begins developing and exploring, common injuries like contusions, head injuries and choking on food or foreign items tend to be unavoidable.
