Parkside Summer Safety Tips

The summer is a great time to prioritize preventative care. Call us to schedule an annual check up today!

Sun Protection

Apply, and re-apply, sunscreen (for children 6 months+). Utilize hats, sunglasses, and tight weave clothing whenever possible.

Water Safety Awareness

Be conscious of your surroundings and never leave your child unattended in the water. Life jackets should be used for young children, weak swimmers, and anyone participating in a water sport. This is a topic close to our hearts as Mission Parkside partners with BNK Water Safety Organization annually.


Make sure your child is drinking plenty of fluids. The more water the better. This could even help with potty training if you have a toddler!

Practice Good Hygiene

Wash hands to help prevent the spreading of germs, and keep your little one’s skin nice and dry.


Until next time,
