Children are more prone to road accidents once they start going to school. They don’t have much idea about the volume of vehicles running on the road. They get panicked when a vehicle stops in front of them.
The drivers also sometimes find It difficult to notice children on the road as they are small. So, it is essential to teach kids about road safety rules just like 1st grade math games teach them to add and subtract and recognize shapes. Here are some ways to do so.
You should talk to your kid about road safety as soon as they start to understand the language. Use small words like ‘look’, ‘stop’, etc. so that they understand and remember what you are saying.
There are lots of interesting books on road safety written in simple language that you can read out to your kids. The books have nice pictures and the kids will find them interesting. The road signs and rules are represented using pictures and symbols that are easy to remember.
When you go to the street with your kid for shopping or other places, show them what the road signs mean. You can tell them about the traffic light when you are crossing the road and show them how to cross the road. You can tell them what to do when a car suddenly stops in front of them.
