It’s important to have a healthy environment where children live, learn and play. Whether it’s at home, at school, at child care centers, in the community.

Although most people do understand the threat of lead poisoning and the serious dangers that it causes, people don’t always realize how much more serious of a problem it can be for children– I’m glad that point was mentioned in this article. A healthy environment is imperative for a growing child, and things need to be done more than just in the home. Parents and community members have a responsibility to make sure that children are in safe environments at school as well. Schools have the capability to alter student’s health in a huge way, and I think it’s worth bringing attention to the public all that can be done to protect children’s health. The following are simple steps that can be taken to reduce environmental threats in schools.

Pesticides on school property should be monitored and usage should be minimized whenever possible. It’s also important to make sure that paint isn’t being applied during school hours. Those fumes can be so detrimental to a child’s health. Notice leaks in your child’s school? That can lead to mold, which can lead to a huge array of problems. Make sure you’re looking out for that the next time you go to school for a visit. Another easy fix is to make sure that school buses aren’t idling near the school building. Close the doors when buses are running nearby.

I’m glad this blog post mentioned the importance of home safety in relation to children’s health and their environment, but I think it’s great to be aware of what can be done outside the home as well.

The Parents aren’t, but think before. The Grandpa aren’t care, because They are knowing their son and grandson. These are natural, and take a look the histories. Which one we are choose…..?
