Child safety at festivals

Dr. Theresa Willis at The Austin Diagnostic Clinic on KXAN

Keeping your kids safe and healthy during ACL

ADC Steiner Ranch Pediatrician Theresa Willis, MD shared some great tips with KXANs Erin Cargile about how to help you and your child enjoy ACL Fest and any other music festival.   Advice include:

  • Research the festival and see what kid activities are available
  • Talk to your children before the event about staying close and what to do if you are separated.
  • Take your child’s photo before arriving at the festival, so, in case you are separate, you can have a record of what they were wearing for officials.
  • Pack your bag with plenty of kid friendly snacks, water, sunscreen and if needed albuterol and/or an epipen for children with asthma or allergies.
  • Protect your child’s hearing by using headsets, ear plugs and standing away from speakers.
