Safety For School-Age Kids

5-9 Years

This is a time when your child will try to prove his or her independence, and will take bigger risks. Injuries from drowning, falls, fires, and bike accidents are top concerns, so it’s important they learn to stay safe, while still letting them be kids. At this age, their well-being is still in your hands, so teach and remind them to explore the world safely.
