My job is a pretty good one. When I’m asked what I do at Safe Kids, I usually distill my answer to three things: make sure kids have fun, stay active and are free from injury. Not a bad 9-5, right? Practically speaking, much of my time is spent on the third item, keeping kids safe while at play. And what better time to reflect on how great my occupation is, and celebrate all three—kids having fun, staying active and remaining safe—than during Playground Safety Week.
