Children do not have the experience and knowledge to make the best decisions. The risk of injury to children requires adult supervision and is the most reliable way to avoid unnecessary risks. Adults can and should take steps to create a safer play environment for children.
Children Are Still Growing. Young athletes are not a scaled-down version of adults. Children's bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments are still growing, making them more vulnerable to injury. In addition, there are significant differences in coordination, strength, and endurance between children and adults.
Growth plates are the areas of developing cartilage at the ends of long bones where bone growth occurs in children. The growth plates are weaker than the nearby ligaments and tendons. A twisted ankle that might result in a sprain in an adult, could result in a more serious growth plate fracture in a young athlete. Growth plate injuries have the potential to disrupt the normal growth of bone.
Here are some guidelines for avoiding injury:
Let your child play on age-appropriate playground equipment and follow the instructions posted on the playground.
The ground should be made of softer materials, such as rubber or wood chips or an air track mat.
Before your child starts playing, check the temperature of slides and other equipment by hand to protect your child's tender skin from injury.
Do not let a young child go down the slide on someone else’s lap, as it's easy to fall over.
When using bicycles, scooters, and other riding tools, which you can shop from Kameymall or other stores, wear appropriate safety equipment, including a fitted helmet, which will greatly improve your child's safety when riding.
Listen to the body
For older children, exercise has become an important part of life. The same exercise throughout the year is now part of their lives, and overuse injuries are common. Teach your young athlete to listen to his or her body. If it hurts, stop. Otherwise, children who play in pain will inevitably end up in hospital.
