Parents Key to Preventing Playground Injuries

The Boston Globe's Daily Dose blog noted that a recent Johns Hopkins University study "predicted a rise in accidental injuries if government efforts to increase childhood physical activity by building more playgrounds continue to ignore the importance of addressing safety issues." It also identifies three mistakes that parents make that lead to common playground injuries: going down slides with their young children, having home trampolines or letting children under age 6 use trampolines, or use monkey bars lacking a cushioned ground surface.

There are various types of play area injuries. A youngster can endure from slashes, bumps, contusions, cracks, concussions and even life-harmful accidents like strangulation.
