Safe Neighborhoods for Children

A PSA

What is your neighborhood like? Do you feel safe around your neighbors? Do you call it home. Well, try asking that to your kids. they might say Mr. Kelly is scary, or they saw a guy smoking a cigarette the other day. They might say they stepped on some broken glass, or the saw someone trading drugs. You will be suprized what the kids notice about the neighborhood, their young, but not stupid.


According to http://www.childtrends.org/?indicators=neighborhood-safety they say, "Having a safe neighborhood is important for a positive youth development. Neighborhoods that are unsafe end up with high rates of infant mortality and low birth weight, juvenile delinquency, high school dropout, child abuse and neglect, and poor motor and social development among preschool children. Children who live in good neighborhoods have positive outcomes such as stronger connections with family, friends and community, and greater participation in helpful programs, volunteering, and other services."

So in short that says simply where you live effects you.

Where you live can be important to your health. Just as conditions within our homes is important for our health, conditions in the neighborhoods surrounding our homes also can have major health effects on us.


Your neighborhood is where you practice your daily life, and you want your daily life to be safe.
