Having 4 little boys I have been to the ER and instacare clinics my fair share of times. I remember riding to the hospital in the ambulance for the first (and luckily the only) time and the EMT saw my little boys. He smiled and said "You better get use to this. This will not be your first trip to the ER." And he was right because between the four of them we have had just about every injury a little boy can get. And the worst time of year is the spring going into summer because of all the sports.
April is National Youth Sports Safety Month and I have teamed up with SAFESKIN® Kids Sport Wrap to get the word out. Each year more than 3.5 million children under the age of 14 receive medical treatment for sports related injuries,(1) with strains and sprains among the most common complaint (2).
Luckily we have not had any injuries yet ( knock on wood, finders crossed, stand on our head while chanting three times). So we opted to use our SAFESKIN for another purpose........
(My boys are currently on a Ninjago kick. It is a lego cartoon thing where they scare off snakes...or something)
You can purchase the sports wrap at Wal-Mart for $3.94. If you are interested in trying it you can get a coupon off of their Facebook page. That way you'll be covered if your child gets injured, or if they have a thing for ninjas too. :)
Speaking of Wal-Mart..................
