Summer and the outdoors go hand and hand. At the same time, injuries from bicycle falls, bug bites, rickety play structures, and swimming pools become more frequent. While you can't prevent every outdoor accident, there are a number of things you can do right in your own backyard to improve your child’s safety. Remember, there is no prevention like supervision!
Happy 4th of July, everyone!
