Falls Prevention for Teens

Unfortunately, falls – both emotional and physical – can be a big part of this age. In many ways, the emotional ones are tougher on parents, so hang in there. You’ll laugh about it someday. Here are some things you can do to teach your preteen and teenager how to prevent fall-related injuries.

Top Safety Tips

  • It’s important that kids have the freedom to be creative and push their limits. That means wearing a helmet for appropriate activities such as biking or snowboarding to prevent a head injury that can ruin the fun down the road.
  • Talk to your kid about appropriate play behaviors. We know some play can be physical, but it’s important to know when and where it’s appropriate.
