What Happened To This Little Boy Will Make You Reconsider Going To Trampoline Parks

One of the biggest crazes out there for keeping kids active is taking them to trampoline parks.

It can be a great place to have a birthday party or spend an afternoon in a way that keeps them moving. And to be perfectly honest, it can be a blast for adults as well. It's a total workout, and staying active alongside children instills healthy habits.

One family who suffered a terrible accident wants to give a warning to others, however, noting that there should be age restrictions in order to protect children and keep them safe.

The Academy of American Pediatrics warns against the dangers of trampoline use for people of all ages.

Specifically, however, children under the age of six may be more likely to develop an injury due to jumping on a trampoline because their bones are more fragile.

Kait Ellen's son Colton fell while jumping at a trampoline park and broke his femur, the strongest bone in the body. She didn't know about these recommendations until her doctors told her.

She said she's noticed trampoline parks advertising "Toddler Time," which may be dangerous for small children.

As always, if you have any questions about medical issues, you should always check in with your doctor to see if an activity is safe for your child.

This is such an important warning for parents. Share this with the people you know who have little ones at home!
