Snowballs & Sleds: Keeping our Kids Safe
For many children, the fun of winter centers around snow. As your
"bundles up" to greet the elements, please remember that the
protection, too. The human brain is the most amazing and complex structure
in our universe. Billions of interlinked nerve cells, called neurons,
all thoughts and actions. The brain continues to develop through teenage
years, and it is of the utmost importance to protect it. When a child's
brain is injured, it does not heal like a broken bone or a skin
The brain does not repair itself. When neurons are damaged, they stop
A traumatic brain injury occurs every 15 seconds in the United
resulting in 5.3 million Americans living with a disability. This is an
alarming statistic, when you consider that the population of Chicago is 3
million. Relating this to children, head injury is the leading cause of
death. Each year more than one million children sustain brain injuries
classified from mild to severe.
Brain injury is often referred to as the "silent
epidemic." There is a
widespread lack of public awareness about what brain injury is and how it
can be prevented. The only known cure for brain injury is prevention.
Throwing snowballs is a natural outdoor game for children.
should be made from soft snow, since icy snow can cause puncture wounds or
skin lacerations. The head should never be the target. Also, instruct your
child to never place a stone inside a snowball, or to throw with force.
Sledding accidents often result from poor control, resulting in
with stationary objects such as trees, fences, cars, or buildings. It
important to first walk the slope before sledding, inspecting the hill for
hidden dangers such as rocks, tree stumps, or protruding branches. Parents
should teach children to:
. Never sled head first! Sled in a forward facing sitting position,
. Choose hills that have a flat end for stopping,
. Wear protective accessories, including a helmet, gloves, and
. Sled on snow covered slopes, not icy ones.
. Sled away from buildings, roads, and other inanimate objects.
. Learn to steer and use breaks on small hills, before moving onto
. If using a snow tube, be sure to use hand holds. This prevents
or sliding off.
For additional information about Winter Safety for Children, or other head
injury prevention programs, phone the Brain Injury Association at
