DID YOU KNOW THAT AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENTS ARE THE NO. 1 CAUSE OF DEATH FOR CHILDREN?

According to the article cited below, the number one cause of death to children between the ages of 1 and 12 is automobile accidents.  I found that surprising but have no reason to doubt its accuracy.

There is no question that a lot of children are either killed or seriously injured in car accidents.  Obviously, we can’t totally eliminate these accidents but one of the most important things we can do is choose the proper seat restraint device for the child.  You can read more of the details in the article below but the main point is to get a car seat that is appropriate for the age and size of the child.

We never want to think that this could happen to any of our children. We need to look at the number one killer of children more seriously and that is car accidents. What can we do to minimize these tragic deaths?

The first step is choosing the right car seat. You need to pick out for safety the right size and style car seat for your child’s height and weight. Once you pick out the best one then you need to make sure that you properly install the seat in your car. This will give your children the best protection in case you get in one of these automobile accidents.
