Child and Adolescent Safety Statistics
Prior to completing this discussion, please read Modules 5 and 6 in the textbook and review any relevant Instructor Guidance. You may be interested in viewing the interactive infographic within Module 6 to learn more about specific safety statistics.
For this post, you will analyze the major themes of Health and Well-Being, Family and Parenting, Education, Culture and Gender as factors influencing the domain of physical development, specifically safety. Think about and comment on how child and adolescent safety regulations have changed over the past few decades. Provide examples of new safety guidelines that did not exist either when you were growing up, or when your parents were growing up. Then, look through the recommended resources for Week Three and/or other scholarly articles from the Ashford University Library website and find and report on three statistics specifically related to child and adolescent safety from this current decade (2010-present) within each of the three stages of infancy/toddlerhood, childhood, and adolescence. In other words, you will have 1 unique statistic for each of the three stages. Throughout your post, demonstrate a foundational knowledge of the children’s developmental continuum, from conception, by addressing unique safety standards. See the example below:
