Sharing is caring!

Since young children are still developing, they have thinner skin than adults, which can result in more serious injuries from a burn or scald. One of the ways young, curious kids learn about their surroundings is through their sense of touch. Sometimes their explorations can lead them to reach out and touch hot objects, resulting in an injury. In honor of National Burn Awareness Week, here are a few helpful tips to keep your child safe from potential burns and scalds.
