  1. The effectiveness of parents in promoting the development of road crossing skills in young children.

    Article - En anglais

    Background

    Young children show poor judgment when asked to select a safe place to cross the road, frequently considering dangerous sites to be safe.

    Correspondingly, child pedestrian accidents are over-represented at such locations.

    Increasing the child's ability to recognise such dangers is a central challenge for road safety education.

    Aims

    Practical training methods have proved effective in improving such judgments but are labour-intensive, time-consuming and therefore difficult to implement on a realistic scale.

    The study examined the possibility that volunteers from the local community might be capable of using such methods to promote children's pedestrian competence.

    Sample.

    Sixty children from the Primary 1 (Reception) classes of three Glasgow schools took part.

    Volunteers were ordinary parents from the same areas.

    None had'formal'experience of working with children other than through being parents.

    Method

    Volunteers received experience of training children at courses organised in each school.

    Children learned in small groups, receiving two sessions of roadside training followed by four on a table-top model.

    Pre-and post-tests allowed the effectiveness of training to be assessed.

    Results

    Significant improvements relative to controls were found in all children following training.

    Improvements proved robust and no deterioration was observed two months after the programme ended. (...)
