    S1E2 - The Worst Advice Your Parents Gave You

    S1E2 - The Worst Advice Your Parents Gave You

    Well, in my day … Ever get a piece of advice that starts out like that? Feel pressured to follow what your mom tells you, even if you’ve read or heard new information?
    As we learn more about how injuries happen, we apply that learning and make changes to the best practices we recommend. We can pinpoint what’s effective to prevent injuries at home, at play and on the move. Times have changed from ‘old wives’ tales’ on safety and risk. Which are true? Which are terrible? Let’s find out…
    Joining Pam today are Wyatt, Ashley, and Heather as well as our expert Sandra Newton from Child Safety Link.
    Some advice from the past is still appropriate but not everything.
    There is some bad advice out there, but there are places of trusted information too.
    See the world from your child’s perspective to understand what attracts them and might cause harm.

    S1E1 - No Bubble Wrap

    S1E1 - No Bubble Wrap

    Welcome to the first episode of Parachute’s Popping the Bubble Wrap podcast.
    Are you the person who worries in your family? Are you the one who’s trying to keep everyone safe? This podcast is for you!
    When we think about preventing injuries, we might think, BUBBLE WRAP! Keep everyone safe by wrapping them up and away from any harm. But that’s not the best way to prevent injuries. You don’t have to stop living to stop injuries.
    Injuries aren’t inevitable and their impact overall is a lot greater than most people know. Did YOU know that injuries are the Number One cause of death for Canadians ages 1 to 44? Those people fell, were poisoned, were in a motor vehicle crash. Surprised?
    So how do we change this? By embracing proven ways to prevent serious injuries. You wouldn’t jump out of a plane without a parachute. Think of this podcast as the parent’s parachute. The good news is that almost all injuries are preventable – you just need to use the right parachute.
    Injuries are the No. 1 cause of death but there are known solutions to prevent them.
    Children can be safe at home, at play, and on the road / move.
    Parents know their children best, what they are capable of and not capable of, and can use this to balance safety and FUN!
