Safety Tips

Celebration Tips

  • Purchase only costumes that are flame retardant.
  • Make sure your child has your name and phone number on their costume.
  • Prevent trips and falls by avoiding shoes with high heels or that are too big and hard for them to walk in. Make sure the costume doesn’t drag the ground.
  • Accompany children under 12. Make sure older children go in a group and all ages know their phone number or how to call 911 and be able to give their location. If possible, have them carry a cell phone. Know the route they are going and remind them to only go to homes with porch lights on and on lighted streets.
  • Remind children to only cross the street at crosswalks and to walk facing traffic.
  • Give kids flashlights with new batteries. If you give them the popular “Glow Sticks” etc… be aware they can break. If they do and they get on skin or in the mouth, rinse quickly with water and if you have any questions or concerns call POISON CONTROL at: 1-800-222-1222.
  • Tell kids to stay in their neighborhoods and only go to homes they know. NEVER go into strangers’ homes or cars.
  • Throw out any unwrapped, torn, or holes in wrappers or candy. Throw out any homemade treats.
  • Children under three years of age should not have hard candy, gum, sticky taffy or gummy-like products. They are at higher risk of choking on these types of sweets.

I hope these tips help our Goldsmith Families have a safe, fun and healthy time during these celebrations.

Asthma

From Nurse Gina:

Asthma- What are symptoms?

Unfortunately, the signs and symptoms of asthma are mistaken for a cough, colds or a respiratory issue.  It is hard to determine if your child has asthma of just the “common cold”.

The following questions may help:

  • Does your child cough a lot at night or in the morning?
  • Does your child wheeze or cough while exercising or playing?
  • When exposed to dust, allergens, smoke, or strong odors, does your child wheeze, cough or experience chest tightness?
  • When your child has a cold, does it seem to settle into their chest and take more than 10 days to clear up?
  • Do you have to give your child cough medicine more than once a month?
  • Has your child had pneumonia or bronchitis more than once in any given year?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, talk to your pediatrician about your child’s symptoms. It may also be necessary to ask for a referral to a pediatric allergist to determine if your child has asthma.
