Child and Adolescent   Safety Statistics [WLOs: 1, 2, 3] [CLOs: 2, 6]

Prior to completing this discussion, please read Chapters 5 and 6 in your textbook. You may be interested in viewing the interactive infographic within Chapter 6 to learn more about specific safety statistics.

Safety is an important issue to consider when explaining the physical development in children and adolescence. For this discussion, you will address the following:

  • Provide examples of new safety guidelines that did not      exist either when you were growing up, or when your parents were growing      up.
  • Then, review What Is CRAAP? A Guide to      Evaluating Web Sources (Links to an external site.) and      search the internet for credible sources, using Ashford University      Library’s video Scholarly and Popular Resources (Links      to an external site.) for guidelines. Find and report on three      statistics specifically related to child and adolescent safety from this      current decade (2010 to present). Provide one statistic for each of the      three stages: infancy or toddlerhood, childhood, and adolescence. Address      the social system (family, school, and the community) that is affected by      this statistic if applicable. 
    • In other words, you will have one unique statistic for       each of the three stages. Be sure to reference the site where the       statistic was located.

See the example below:


One statistic found on the Centers   for Disease Control and Prevention web page, under the Child Passenger   Safety: Get the Facts, Risk Reduction for Every Age tab, states that, “Car   seat use reduces the risk for death to infants (aged <1 year) by 71%; and   to toddlers (aged 1–4 years) by 54% in passenger vehicles” (2017, para. 3).
