After School activities, How Safe Are they?

Well it is that time of year again. Back to school time and I don’t know about you but in our house there is very little talk about new shoes or uniforms ,but mine are making lists of after school activities that they will take up this year…The list of ideas range from horse riding to Athletics and apart from the money to pay for all these activities.I started to think about how safe  these activities are.The likes of horse riding must have pretty strict guide lines to adhere to , but when I went looking on line for safety procedures I cant find anything at all……

How much real supervision goes on?

When you see how safe your kids are when we are supervising them ourselves, you have to wonder how many situations are missed by the people giving the lesson. You would like to think that the staff understand the importance of their job and the responsibility they hold in their often very young hands.When there are cuts all over, is the safety of our kids being put in jeprody?

So think safety choosing an after school activity.

So this year while you are discussing with your kids what activities they would like to try out , be very much aware of the safety procedures used in the club, centre or swimming pool… It is vitally important to have some idea what to do in an emergency.
