Leaming-Van Zandt advises all parents to read and understand the risks associated with kids jumping on trampolines, and urges them to watch their children closely if they allow them to go to these parks.
If your kids jump on a trampoline, they may soon be limping into line at the emergency room. A new report reveals that trampolines injure almost 100,000 children a year.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports more than 104,000 trampoline injuries treated in emergency rooms across the country in 2014. The American Academy of Pediatrics says not to buy a trampoline for your home and don’t allow your kids to jump on trampolines at other people’s homes. They say they are dangerous, even with nets and should only be used in supervised training programs.
