Health Tip: Watch Kids Closely at the Playground

(HealthDay News) -- Children should be closely supervised at the playground to help reduce their risk of injury.

The Safe Kids Worldwide website offers these suggestions for parents:

  • Inspect the playground to be sure equipment is age-appropriate. Make sure there are no broken or sharp areas or dangerous surfaces.

  • Talk to your child about following safety rules, such as not pushing, shoving or crowding.

  • Make sure your child is appropriately dressed for the playground. Don't allow the child to wear necklaces, scarves, purses or drawstring clothing that may become caught in equipment.

  • Have children under age 5 to play at a separate area designed for that age group.
