Perth, Australia (PRWEB) November 14, 2013
According to the United States Nationwide Children’s Hospital study, falling TVs send children to the emergency room every 30 minutes. Retired executive officer of the National Safety Council of Western Australia, Florence Parry asks: how can we make our children safer?
In her new book “Great Grandma’s Guidelines to Prevent Childhood Accidents”, Parry shares a wealth of practical advice, information and documented research in the field of preventing childhood accidents.
"With simple steps for good learning habits, my book illustrates how to protect your children when they are too young to understand safety,” says Parry. “ It also shows the importance of teaching your children self-safety protection as they grow older.”
The book explains that despite the location, social status, culture or religion of a child, all children learn about the world through similar stages of growth and development. “Great Grandma’s Guidelines to Prevent Childhood Accidents” provides the stages of children’s development so parents will be able to recognize environmental hazards and take appropriate precautions to prevent: falling, swallowing small objects, burns/scalds, poisoning, drowning and sport-related injuries.
This educational tool for parents of children infant to 14-years-old, reveals the predictability of certain injuries and the precautions that should be taken.
