The following are some random common sense ideas that all parents might want to consider. The link at the bottom of the article is the AAP recommendations for sun protection/ pool sand exercise safety for kids. In addition I recommend:
No flipflops if you're carrying your child.
Consider sunglasses for children even if they don't want them. Let them choose a cool pair because better eye protection may lower the incidence of cataracts down the road.
Don't forget to do tick checks. If on for 24 hours or more ask us to prescribe antibiotics.
If you or your kids are in an airconditioned facility you don't have to drink extra liquids during a heat emergency.
Grilling food is tasty but it should be done in moderation if you don't use fresh lava stones, wood or charcoal. The crusted-on superheated fat that rises up from old charcoal is most likely carcinogenic (cancer promoting).
Set a good example for your kids and always wear a seatbelt.
I liked this info page about avoiding lightening. I thought the admonish about 'don't carry a lightening rod (golf club or fishing pole) to be cute.
PS - don't forget to call early for those school physicals!!!
