The Safe and Sound Child: Keeping Your Child Safe inside and outside the Home.
Stone, Leslie; And Others
Noting that many types of potentially tragic accidents and calamities can be avoided or averted if we take the time to learn how, this book examines the characteristics of several household and outdoor hazards and how to prevent or minimize the possibility of injury, particularly to children. The chapters deal with the following potential hazards: (1) fire; (2) physical injuries and treatments; (3) poisons, medicine overdoses, and treatments; (4) toys; (5) childproofing the home; (6) travel in planes, trains, automobiles, and other conveyances; (7) use of strollers, bicycles, and skates; (8) playgrounds and pools; (9) strangers; (10) seasonal safety; and (11) pets. Each section concludes with a summary of "very important tips." A list of resources is appended. Contains 17 references. (HTH)
