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).
