  • Hi, I'm Jamie Kondis and I'm here to talk to you today about summer safety tips

  • summer is such a fun time for kids and parents to be outdoors but there are a

  • few things that you want to think about just to be cautious and make sure that

  • kids don't end up in the emergency department with any injuries or

  • illnesses. First of all, kids are gonna love to play

  • outside but if you've got little kids they're gonna want to try to put

  • things in their mouths so make sure that you know what's in your yard if you

  • don't know what the plants are you might want to call your local poison control

  • center and just make sure you don't have anything poisonous. Another series of

  • tips involves grilling and doing things outside. You need to teach kids early on

  • that that grill is just like the stove or oven inside they don't ever want to

  • touch it even when it's been turned off it can still stay hot for a while so

  • just keep the kids away from those grills. Another thing you need to think

  • about is lawn mowers. So, if you have kids keep them away from those lawn mowers

  • the push mowers and the riding mowers can both cause a lot of injuries in

  • kids that we unfortunately see in the summer. If you have a kid who wants to

  • mow the lawn themselves our recommendation is they need to be at

  • least 12 years old before they use the push mower that they walk behind and they

  • need to be at least 16 years old like driving a car before they use the riding

  • lawnmower and you should never have kids on the lawnmower with you that's just

  • not safe. Finally, if your kids are gonna be playing outside make sure that

  • they're wearing sunscreen and bug spray. We actually don't recommend the

  • combination sunscreen bug spray things because you have to reapply

  • sunscreen to kids every two hours but you're not supposed to reapply bug spray

  • that often, so do it separately make sure you've got sunscreen on every part of

  • their exposed skin and that it's a high SPF, higher than 35, 55 is a really good

  • one and make sure that you put on the bug spray just one time before they go

  • outside that should be plenty we don't recommend sunscreen for kids less than

  • six months so those kids if they're going to be outside just need to be

  • totally covered up but we really want them to avoid direct sunlight. So have

  • fun outside in the sun but stay safe.
