Kids get bored, things happen, and next thing you know, you're in the emergency room! We've all been there... some of us as the kid AND some as the adult. To be fair, some of us have seen this from both sides!

Keeping your kids safe and out of trouble during the summer months can be difficult. One summer, my brother and I got so bored that we devised a game that was similar to the 'the floor is lava' game that kids play now. The object was to jump, climb, and/or scale your way around the entire living room without touching the floor. We'd also try and jump from a trampoline into the above-ground pool at our friend's house. What were we thinking?!?! There may have been a few bruises. As a former step-parent, I've also been witness to some pretty epic shenanigans. We'll leave it at that;)

Well, here we are, deep into the heart of summer and it's getting harder to keep kids entertained. Accidents are going to happen. I ran across the results of the 2022 Home Safety Report from SafeHome.org and I was surprised by the top things that injure our precious children. Let's take a look, shall we?
