How To Make Your Yard Safe For Kids To Play4 min read

Kids are fragile beings. They require adult assistance until they gain the confidence to do things independently and live life their way.

A significant chunk of a kid’s life involves playing. Playing in the town’s park, playing with their friends in the school ground or anywhere else where the term ‘playing’ is shouted, you will find kids running like The Flash towards it.

This playing involves activities, mostly in your yard or someone else’s, that require running, jumping, pushing, pulling other kids, and many such physical motions. These put your kid in danger of getting hurt or hurting others. 

In either case, the situation isn’t favorable to both parties. So, what can be done to keep them safe and risk-free, and at the same time not take their childhood memories away from them?

To put it more clearly, how to make your yard safe for kids to play?

How to make your Yard Safe for Kids to Play?

You being an over-possessive parent/guardian, will obviously suggest removing everything. Well, that’s just absurd, and as we mentioned before, it will rob your kids of learning from their experiences of falling and finding the courage to get up.

However, there are some smart choices you can ‘put into play (no pun intended). These will prevent you from going for the extremes like not allowing your kids to play in the yard or letting them do whatever they want without you caring.

  • Regular Replacement of Rides

Your Yard is a recipient of all weathers, from scorching heat to shivering cold. This leads to rusting of rides and a significant decrease in the life span of these rides.

So, once you notice any cracks, loosening of nuts and bolts due to rust in the slides, swings of your yard, you must immediately replace them with new ones. This will keep your kids away from any unwanted accidents and injuries.

  • Regular Mowing of Yard

Grass, when left unattended, leads to abnormal growth and becomes a breeding ground and new habitat for insects and other small animals—for example, snakes or rats.

These are harmful to your kids. They may bite or even spread germs and infections of untreatable diseases.

You regularly mowing your yard will eradicate any chances of such incidents occurring. The absence of camouflage will not let the animals make your yard home for them.

  • Parent/Guardian Supervision

Fights and brawls are a part of growing up for kids. And when you put them in an environment where each holds their opinion the highest, conflicts of interest are bound to happen.

Hence, parent/guardian supervision is mandatory when the kids are engaging in different activities. Their presence will make the kids wary and not make any rash or impulsive decisions.

  • Do not allow Strangers to come in

The crime rate is on an astonishing rise. And the statistics state the highest for kidnappings and toddler abductions.

This is a serious matter, and scrutinized surveillance is compulsory for kids when playing in your backyard. Do not allow the entry of strangers into your yard unless absolutely sure of their identity and credentials.

To keep a check on who your kids interact with, you can keep a security guard at the fenced yard gate to avoid any hazardous incidents, the likes of which are devastating on unimaginable scales.
