Children and Fires

Bookmark and Share
There are many cases where children playing with lighters or matches have started home, garages and debris on fire. The losses are usually substantial since children run and do not want to tell anyone. Why are children playing with fire in the first place? For the most part, they see adults or older children lighting things with a lighter or a match and just want to experience.

If you sit down with a child and explain the dangers, it may or may not have any impact. Kids love to explore, it does necessary mean they are bad, they see you do it and want to do it as well. Schools have firefighters come in and teach about the dangers of fire and this is a great idea, but how many children think about what it would be like to start a fire.

Normally children do not think about the dangers, they are just experimenting and this can be very dangerous. You can hide your lighters or matches and hope that they do not any outside the home, but in all reality, if they find the tools to start a fire, they make experiment.

As parents, you need to sit down with the children and tell them about the dangers, but you also need to tell them stories that may scare them a little. If they see and understand that a fire can kill someone, they may think twice before lighting anything on fire. It is imperative that parents teach their children right from wrong. This goes for anything that children may experiment with and not only fire.

For the most part, anything that is bad for children and can cause bodily injury and even dead. This is just another part of life. Parents need to participate in the upbringing of their children and pay closer attention to what they are doing or what they are inquisitive about before they find out for themselves.
