Preventing injuries

The following are a few guidelines for preventing facial injuries in children:

  • Teach your child not to poke or place objects in the ears or nose, such as cotton swabs or pencils.
  • Teach your child not to walk or run while holding an object in his mouth.
  • Teach your child not to suck or chew on hard, sharp or pointed objects.
  • Have your child wear protective eye, ear, or face guards for sports activities that could cause injury.
  • To prevent injury to the external ear, have your child's ears pierced professionally and take care of them.
Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
