As adults, it is our responsibility to keep children’s safe – we want our children and those we look after to be healthy and happy and to develop well both physically and mentally. Above all, it’s also instinctive that we want kids to be safe.
Children learn through exploration and natural curiosity, and it is part of our job as parents and carers to encourage that. However, as our children grow up, develop and discover new experiences, we have to take more and different steps to ensure their safety.
Until their understanding and instincts catch up with their curiosity, our children need to be protected from everyday dangers – whether crossing the road, in and around the home, trying new foods or talking to new people they meet.
