BAKERSFIELD - Summertime is filled with childhood memories with trips to the beach, ice cream, and rides at the amusement parks, but those memories could be tainted without the proper safety approach.
Kids like to dive into summer to relax, unwind, and have fun with a lot of free time on their hands.
Safety experts say parents need to keep a close eye on their child's activities during the summer: Everything from being aware of your child's online activity to making sure alcohol is not within easy reach at the home.
While many families enjoy the summer, emergency room doctors do not enjoy what they refer to as the "trauma season."
From the heat to pools to bike riding, parents need to be on alert.
Safety experts say parents should advise their children about pedestrian safety when walking close to traffic and riding their bikes, skateboards or scooters.
Riding a bike without a helmet could be an accident waiting to happen. Wearing a cast on an arm or leg can be uncomfortable in the summer, but you cannot put a cast on a child’s brain. Brain injury is the most serious of injuries.
