Baltimore parents understand that their children need a great deal of love and care in order to thrive. While it is certainly not an easy task to be a parent, the challenge can become much more difficult, and the child's needs much more serious, when children are injured in tragic incidents.
With school back in session for Baltimore children, the morning and afternoon commutes have become much more hectic for many area drivers. The roads are now full of school buses, parents bringing their children to school and children walking to school, which can not only add traffic to area roads, but cause safety concerns if drivers are not cautious.
There is nothing more important to Baltimore children than growing up in a loving and caring home. Children need love and support from responsible adults in order to grow and thrive. Unfortunately, this does not always happen, as many children are injured each year at the hands of those who are supposed to be looking out for their best interests.
The time is here for Baltimore residents to beat the summer heat, with many turning to area pools and water sources in those efforts. While the water may feel great on a hot day, unfortunately, many children are injured each summer during trips to pools and waterparks.
With the official start of the summer season just around the corner, many Baltimore children are looking forward to a few months of playtime before school returns in the fall. During this time, children occupy their days through different activities, whether they be organized activities or playing with friends. Unfortunately, many children are injured during the increased playtime, even during the most basic activities.
Most Baltimore children place a lot of trust in the adults in their life. Parents, teachers and others are seen as authority figures, leaders and mentors. It is unfathomable that those same adults, or any other adult, could be responsible for injuring the child. Yet, incidents of child injury happen to Baltimore-area children at the hands of adults, with tragic and long-lasting consequences.
There are few individuals who are trusted more by Baltimore children than a teacher. Teachers provide guidance and nurturing and can make a substantial impact on children's lives.
Many Maryland residents consider themselves to be dog lovers. Dogs can bring joy and companionship to families, but they can also bring some danger when the owners do not manage the dog properly. In these situations, neighboring children can be injured by the carelessness of the dog owner when the dog bites the child.
School is considered by many Baltimore parents to be a safe place for their children to learn and grow. Within this context, the thought of a child injury occurring at school is a frightening one, especially given that these injuries occur when the parent is not present. While the thought may not be pleasant, unfortunately the reality is that children are injured from time to time at school.
Nothing scares Baltimore parents more than the thought of their child being injured. While this thought may be present in the back of parents' minds, the daily routine of work and school makes these thoughts drift out of focus. Unfortunately, however, these fears become a reality for some when their children are injured.
