How to be Prepared for Your Child’s Injuries

One of the scariest things for many parents is when their child gets hurt. Injuries can range from a small scrape to something seriously life-threatening. You can’t keep them guarded and you can’t protect them all the time, either. Knowing what to do when your child gets injured can help both their confidence and their wellbeing. Fussing over the smallest scrape isn’t going to make them ready for the world once they grow up, but not being prepared for serious injuries can make matters worse. Here is how to prepare for your child’s future injuries:  

  1. For When It’s a Small Scrape
Small scrapes, falls, and other common injuries can leave a little kid crying. Fussing over them, however, will only cause them to believe the pain is worse. When a child falls when they’re running down the street, check briefly if they’re bleeding, how much, and if they look fine to continue on their way. Children will look to you to tell them how badly they’re hurt – and if you stay calm, they will too. Teaching them to be brave when they feel pain will carry them far in life when you aren’t around.

  1. For When They’re a Dare Devil
Some children just seem to look for injuries. When you have a daredevil on your hands or a child that loves extreme sports, it’s not a good idea to ban it outright. Children, especially when they get older and go into the notorious rebellious phase, will likely go out and commit these risky sports without you being there. Banning them from being reckless is only guaranteeing that they won’t be reckless in front of you – meaning you won’t be there when they inevitably hurt themselves. Instead, try to direct their energy into a safer place and, if that fails, be supportive so that health officials and yourself will be there for every wipeout.

  1. For When a Genuine Accident Occurs
Sometimes things happen by chance that seriously leave your child hurt. Quick action and dedicated recovery are how you and your child will move past the injury and the trauma. When you and your child are injured in an automobile accident, for instance, it’s best that you get a Personal Injury Doctor Now.

  1. For When Negligence is Involved
In possibly the worst circumstances, your child could be injured because of someone else’s negligence. This means that another adult’s carelessness caused your child to be injured or worse. When this happens, quick action and recovery are of course needed. However, as negligence was involved, you could also be owed compensation. In some cases, you could even prove criminal negligence.

Getting hurt is a fact of life. It’s impossible to go through life from start to finish without a few broken bones and some scars, no matter how careful you are. Knowing how to do emergency first aid, and how to react to each kind of injury is how you’ll protect and prepare your child as they grow up and move out.

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
