Injuries to pedestrians can be serious and lead to long-term physical and mental damage. It’s important to teach your child the skills they need to keep them safe as a pedestrian.
Teaching your child about pedestrian safety will depend on their development. Keep this in mind when teaching your child and match your teaching to their stage of development.
