Safety is an important issue to consider when explaining the physical development in children and adolescence

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 ( https://content.bridgepointeducation.com/curriculum/file/f8a1ef48-2a27-4450-b3d0-242d91015f8d/1/CRAAP%20accessible.pdf ) and search the internet for credible sources. 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).
