Child protection levels

Child protection levels

When you think about child protection, you need to see it in terms of "levels." The concept of protection levels is based on the fact that there is no magic instrument that guarantees absolute safety under any conditions. When you apply successive levels of safety, you significantly increase your chances of success: if one level falls, the next level comes!

In any case, each level is as important as the other. It makes no sense to consume time and effort to add an easily exceedable level of protection. Equally allocate time and energy to the construction of each level, and remember that at the first level is the Child, who is also the most vulnerable.

As an example, let's see how you can protect your child from drowning if you have the pool:

Action 1: identification of the risk area: Swimming pool

Action 2: identification of the minimum level of protection: The child

Now you start applying the protection levels around the child:

Level 1 - Your child

Invest in a safe and preventive education pool. Teach your child to swim as early as possible and teach him the rules of playing in and around the pool. Keep the child away from the pool when not supervised by an adult.

Level 2 - Alarm bracelet

Buy an alarm system in case of water immersion of the child. There are systems in which the child wears a watch-like bracelet, which alerts you if the child has come in contact with water.

Level 3 - Swimming pool alarm system

Install an alarm system in the pool that alerts you in case of movement inside the pool.

Level 4 - Physical barriers

Prevent access to the pool by installing a small fence around it. Secure the fence with a secure gate with a self-closing system.

Level 5 - Door alarms

If your child can open a door by himself, install door alarm systems at each of the exit doors of the house.

Level 6 - Supervised, supervised, supervised

There is no better way of protection than one's own supervision. Nothing can truly replace this.

The process of creating protection on the levels used in the example above is a good model that you can use in protecting the child from any other risk. And do not forget that the last level of protection is always you, parents!

In order to be sure that you understand correctly the use of protection levels, you should always be able to complete a few simple actions:

1. Always be aware of potential risks.

2. Start with a minimum level of protection.

3. Build from that level.

4. Complete the process with parental supervision whenever possible.
