Parent education regarding burn and scald prevention can include discussions or lessons regarding appropriate storage of matches, use of smoke detectors and fire extinguishers, means to avoid hot water scalding, and other burn and scald risks.
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.
