For Safety’s Sake, Don’t Leave Kids in Cars

Mother Bathing Baby (12-18 Months)

Noah’s Ark Pediatrics would like to remind parents not to leave children alone in a car in warm weather, because that puts them at risk for heat stroke and death.

 

In 2013, 43 children in the United States died from heat stroke after being left in vehicles, according to Safe Kids Worldwide.

 

Children overheat three to five times faster than adults, according to the National Safety Council (NSC). Even when it’s 70 degrees Fahrenheit outside, a vehicle can reach a life-threatening temperature within minutes.

 

The NSC offered the following safety tips:
• Never leave a child alone in a car.
• When you have children in the car, use reminders to ensure that you’ll check for them when you get out of the car. For example, leave something you need in the back, such as your purse, briefcase or phone.
• Always lock your car doors after you get out of the vehicle. This will prevent children from getting into the car on their own and possibly getting trapped inside.
• If you see a child alone in a car, call 911 immediately.

Encouragement And Demonstration
“The key to your child’s Academic Success”

In fact, this same body of research indicates that if a child struggles to attain literacy skills early in their academic experience their chances of poor academic performance throughout their educational career is significantly increased (Alexander & Entwisle, 1988) It is apparent that the more a child, even from birth, is exposed to literacy building activities the easier it is for that child to develop literacy skills at a younger

“Thou Shalt Remember your Child’s Physicals”

Remember the importance of preventative medicine. The old saying “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is certainly true in reference to pediatric medicine. Do not miss your child’s physicals and make sure you get them as prescribed by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Making sure your kids receive the proper care will prevent problems in the future.
