Ways For Children To Prevent Water Tubing Injuries

Posted by admin in young children , summer , sports , parenting , injuries , health

Here are some ways for children to prevent water tubing injuries:

  • Wear a personal floatation device (PFD). If a water tubing accident happens, a life vest may prevent drowning.
  • Have a spotter, whose only job is to keep an eye on those who are tubing. The spotter should tell the driver of any issues, such as falling off the tube or rider requests to slow down.
  • Check the tow rope before starting. The tow rope should be free of slack and should not be tangled with any objects. The tube can flip leading to accidents

Tubing Dangers & Precautions

Posted by admin in summer , sports , kids , injuries , health , children

If your child goes tubing, there are certain precautions the adult boat driver should take. Adults should be alert to how wide the tube is swinging out from the wake.  Look for possible obstacles for collisions.  Boat drivers should slow down when towing tubes.  Children riding in tubes can’t make changes in direction and when towed at higher speeds, the tube tends to whip wide outside the boat’s wake. 

Tomorrow we will look at how kids can protect themselves while tubing.

Tubing Injuries

Posted by admin in summer , sports , kids , injuries , head lice , children

Nearly half of all injuries to children in boating accidents come from towed tubes also known as tubing.  When these injuries occur, they tend to be severe.  Injuries to children in tubing accidents came from impact with objects, the tow rope or the propeller. 

How can your children go tubing without major injuries?  Come back tomorrow.

Take Water Breaks

Take water breaks.  If your child complains about dizziness, headache, nausea or muscle cramps, he or she could be overheated or at risk for heat-related illness.

Summer Water Safety

Posted by admin in young children , summer , sports , parenting , kids , exercise

A child can drown in as little as one inch of water.  Even if your child knows how to swim, watch them closely any time they are in or near water.

Never Leave Dogs Or Children In A Parked Car

Never leave dogs or children in a parked car.  This is true even for a quick errand and even if the windows are cracked open on a warm day.

School Shootings & Building Design

Schools have been preparing for shootings like the one yesterday in Troutdale, Oregon.  Due to the tragic Newtown, CT school shootings, some local cities and towns are keeping security in mind as they design new school buildings.  For example, Newton, MA’s new Angier Elementary School building was supposed to have their kindergarten classrooms on the ground floor so these smaller kids could have easier access.  After the Sandy Hook shootings, the City of Newton decided to move all classrooms at the Angier Elementary School to the second and third floors.
