There are probably few things more important to you than your child's health and well-being. But even though you may try your best to keep your child healthy and safe, it is not always easy to know exactly what to do, especially when your child is injured.
Children's work is their play. Play includes many fun types of activities that also put them at risk for injury, such as running, climbing, swimming, biking, and sports. Minor accidents and injuries are part of childhood and growing up.
For parents and caregivers, knowing what to do when minor injuries occur is an important part of caring for a child.
To help avoid many common childhood injuries, parents and caregivers should consider learning how to care for injuries; tell the difference between a minor problem and a true emergency and respond accordingly; learn what to keep in a first-aid kit; and complete a checklist and phone contact list for when emergencies occur.
