SEASONAL HEALTH TIPS
Fun summer activities, including
camping, swimming and outdoor play, are great for promoting physical activity.
Indoor activities (museum trips, ice or roller skating, basketball) are also great ways to keep kids active in the hot summer months.
To keep safe this summer, remember:
- Swimming safety; children should always have adult supervision when swimming and should never swim alone. Remind your children and teens to check with an adult before diving or jumping head first into a pool or body of water.
- Sunscreen should be applied all over body 20 minutes before going into sun, and reapplied every 2 hours. Enough sunscreen to cover the whole body should fill a glass the size of a shotglass. Waterproof products will keep sunscreen from running into child’s eyes.
- Check your kids for ticks every day; if a tick is embedded in the skin, remove it with tweezers and write the child’s name down on the calendar. If he or she develops fevers, rash or muscle aches within 3 weeks after tick bite, call our office. Insect repellant will help keep ticks and mosquitoes away.
- Bike and scooter riding safety; children should always wear helmets when riding, even if riding in the front yard. If your child hits his or her head and does not feel well afterwards, call our office for an exam to assess for possible concussion.
- Reading is a great summer activity that will keep your child’s reading skills up; the library is a great place to start.
- Remember to schedule your child’s back to school or sports physicals as soon as possible; August appointments fill up fast! We’re happy to fill out school or athletic forms during the physical; just bring them with you to the appointment.
