What are some scissor safety skills that I need to teach my child?
No matter what, you want to make certain that your child is being safe with whatever type of scissors that they’re using. Before they start cutting, make certain that you talk to your child about the importance of being safe with scissors.
Talk to them about these key scissor safety points:
Never run with scissors
Don’t ever point scissors at anyone
Refrain from tossing or throwing scissors
If they aren’t using their scissors, they need to set them on a table up and off the ground
These simple scissor safety skills will help ensure that your child doesn’t cause any type of accidental harm to themselves or to others.
The other big factor to keep in mind is that when your child is using scissors, make sure that you’re always supervising as well. That way if there is an issue, you are right there to help.
