Help your children stay safe when they're playing outside

During the summer months in the Bay Area, the great weather means that everyone wants to get outside as much as possible -- especially children. If you're a parent, you're probably happy every time your kids say they want to get outside and go for a walk through the neighborhood rather than having their noses buried in an iPad. But, as all parents do, you probably worry about the safety of your children as well.

Here are a few tips on how to teach your kids to stay safe while playing outside during the summer months:

-- Teach them that they should not cross the street by themselves without the assistance of an adult until they've reached ten years of age.

-- Teach them to only cross streets at intersections, corners, traffic signals or crosswalks.

-- Teach them to look both ways, then look again. They should look left, right and finally left every time they cross a street. This habit is easy to teach kids and it will help them avoid injury their entire lives.

-- Teach kids not to run across the street, walk.

-- Show kids why it's safer to walk against traffic and as far to the left, on the side of the road, rather than with their back to traffic.

-- Teach children that whenever possible they should walk on the sidewalk rather than the road.

-- Teach your children that if they need to cross the road, they should never do it by first passing between two parked cars, and they should never dart out into the road suddenly, even if no traffic is around.

-- Show children that they should wear helmets when they get on their bicycles, skateboards and other wheeled devices.

-- Don't leave your children by themselves in a vehicle.

-- Teach children not to play in the street or around cars.

Some parents, no matter how well they teach their kids, will still have a child that gets hurt by an inattentive or unlawful motorist. If your child got hurt in an accident that involved a car, a personal injury lawyer may be able to help you pursue financial claims in court to hold the at fault party accountable.
