Keeping Children Safe in Brutal Cold

advertisement

It is brutally cold, but children still have to go to school and there are some steps you can take to keep them safe.

Dress your children in layers because they lose body heat much faster than adults do.

Pediatricians say it’s best to dress children in multiple light layers and protect their head, hands and feet.

If your child is walking to school or waiting outside for the bus, be mindful of cold-weather safety.

Small children should typically wear one layer more than an adult would wear.
