A safe way to school
The summer holidays will end in the middle of next week. When school starts, there is not only a lot of new things for the first graders, but also for everyone who changes from elementary school to a secondary school.
How should the way to school be trained?
Train your child to school several times with him. The training should take place linked to the school hours. A weekend with a rather low volume of traffic can only serve as an introduction training. This also applies to the use of public transport and the correct behavior at stops.
How do I find the best way for my child?
The shortest route is not always the best. A detour should be accepted in the case of danger spots such as large intersections or confusing traffic routing. When practicing, parents should explain the way to the children and explicitly point out danger spots such as exits. After practicing several times, the child can then lead a parent and explain the way to him. Easy routes should be practiced at least four times, difficult routes up to ten times.
What else is there to consider?
It is also possible to walk behind the child at a certain distance and see if he thinks of everything. If there are still uncertainties, it is advisable to continue to accompany the child on the way for the first time after starting school. Of course, this also applies to children who could not practice beforehand. It is also important that you take enough time in the morning. If the child goes to the last minute and feels rushed, they are less careful and may even make a mistake faster on the road.
What about the parent taxi?
The traffic watch should avoid the car if possible. Exercise and fresh air before school starts are good for first graders as well as older students. Anyone who relies on the car to go to school shouldn't stop in front of the school gate to prevent traffic chaos and not to endanger the children. In the meantime, parent stops have been set up at most schools. From these pick-up and drop-off areas, the children can walk safely the last part of the way, and some fresh air in the morning is good for them.
What about riding a bike?
The police recommend that children should first take the bicycle test during primary school and only then cycle to school. And appeals to the parents: If your child rides a bicycle to school, you regularly take care of the perfect technical condition. Good equipment includes a bicycle helmet in the right size that can protect properly when worn.
The dark season begins in autumn in a few weeks. What should I put attention on?
Send your children to school as clearly as possible. You can increase safety by adding reflective elements to clothing or using safety vests. This is a good investment for the upcoming dark season. Drivers can recognize pedestrians with reflective clothing about 150 meters earlier.
