Injury Prevention

Just For Middle School

Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC reports that sports- and bicycle-related injuries are on the rise among children ages 10-14. Part of this surge is an overall increase in sports participation. Additionally, as children gain independence during this stage they take greater risks, often unknowingly, while at the same time parents often reduce their oversight.

Learn more about what puts middle school children at greater risk and the important role you as the parent can play in helping them play it safe.
