As Naples kids get older, they often are able to help out around the house. Giving kids more responsibility is essential to their health and development, but parents should be sure to know what responsibilities their children are ready for, especially when it comes to working in the yard.
Mowing the lawn is a weekly chore for many Naples families, and most parents are happy to turn this job over to an older child. However, parents should be absolutely sure that their child is old enough (and mature enough) to safely operate the machinery. After all, we’re talking about sharp, motorized blades whirring within arm’s length of our child’s legs and feet. Because these machines are commonplace, many parents forget how dangerous they are. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children be at least twelve years of age before using a walk-behind mower and sixteen for ride-on mowers. Of course, this doesn’t mean that every teen is capable of safely mowing the lawn, these are only general guidelines.
Anyone operating a mower should wear sturdy shoes instead of sandals. Remove objects from the lawn such as toys and small rocks before mowing, and insist that your child wear eye protection while they mow.
Regardless of who is cutting the grass at your Boca Grande, Englewood, or Punta Gorda home, young children should not be outside playing while the mower is running.
