Parent education can include discussions or lessons regarding safe storage of medications and cleaning supplies, availability of poison control number, and use of child resistant packaging for prescriptions.
Cochrane-Kendrick 2007 finds that parenting interventions, most commonly provided within the home using multi-faceted interventions, may be effective in reducing child injury. Such interventions have demonstrated effectiveness in improving behavior problems in children under 10, improving maternal psychosocial health and self-esteem, and improving child behavior and parental mental health in families with children with conduct disorder. Studies suggest such interventions may increase implementation of safety practices as well.
