Safety on the road

Parents are savvy when it comes to child safety

We all know that child safety is important and it was definitely a relief to find out that most Singaporean parents are quite savvy when it came down to knowing the basics of child safety.

In the month of April, Singapore’s leading parenting portal, theAsianparent, and Albert Ng and Associates ran a child safety quiz across theAsianparent.com. Over 300 Singaporean based parents took part in the five question long quiz.

The quiz which revolved around child safety had five questions. On average, Singaporeans got 74% off the answers correct.  The questions on choking hazards had over 98% correct responses. On the flip side, only 4% of Singaporeans got the right age for stopping the use of a bike helmet.

Here are the questions asked as well as the replies. The correct responses are in red.
