Yard Hazards

Your child will probably spend a significant amount of time in the yard. Supervision for young children playing in a yard is very important. If possible, your yard should be fenced. Many of the hazards in a yard result from poor yard maintenance. Young children especially will try to put anything they find into their mouths. Take a good look around, and put away or fix any hazards you find.
