This year, Australia is one of the few countries that do not have a compulsory safety law that requires the use of safety shoes, even for children.
It also does not have any compulsory child-friendly safety laws.
But a survey by the Children’s Foundation of Australia found that the public overwhelmingly thought there should be some type of mandatory safety law.
The survey also found that Australians also think the country needs to be “a bit more open about the safety of children”.
Children are the main victims of motor vehicle crashes and children aged five and under are the most vulnerable to car crashes.
The majority of car crashes involving children are on the side of the road and in poor light.
One in five children aged six to 14 have a head injury and more than one in five of those are children.
Children aged five to 14 are also three times more likely to die in a car crash than children aged 12 to 15.
Children are at greater risk of serious injury and death in the hands of an adult.
“Children are the biggest victims of accidents,” says Michelle Tarrant, the Childrens Foundation’s national policy and research director.
“They are the ones most likely to be involved in an accident, and they are also the ones who have the greatest risk of dying as a result of the collision.”
It is not just children who are injured.
A child’s brain and skull are significantly more fragile than adults.
The brain can suffer from damage during pregnancy, childbirth, postnatal and post-natal brain injuries.
This can lead to a brain injury that can be fatal.
In a study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in 2016, researchers found that nearly one in 10 of all children in the UK and Ireland experienced at least one concussion and another 10 had a mild traumatic brain injury.
The researchers also found an association between head injuries and lower intelligence.
The findings from the UK are also significant.
In 2016, the Royal College of Surgeons published a report that found that children are four times more than twice as likely to suffer brain damage as adults in the United Kingdom.
“We are not the safest place in the world,” Tarrants says.
“The safest place we can be is in Australia.”
But even in Australia, children are still at greater risks.
Children who are not wearing safety shoes are far more likely than their peers to die.
“It’s the safest country on earth, and it’s still a very dangerous place to be a child,” Tarcant says.
This year Australia was one of just two countries that had a compulsory law for children’s safety shoes.
But there is no mandatory law in place in New South Wales.
In NSW, children’s clothing is not compulsory, and parents can wear safety shoes themselves.
But children in NSW cannot be given free shoes.
And there are no mandatory laws requiring children to wear safety boots.
This is because children in New Zealand are required to wear shoes on the beach or on the land, and because children’s footwear is not mandatory.
In other countries children are allowed to wear sandals or boots at home, but are not required to use them.
The Australian government says it wants to see children wearing safer footwear, such as the one children in Australia have been wearing.
“For the most part, we are not doing that,” says Tarcants.
“But we do think it’s important that parents and children have some sort of footwear for safety, whether it’s a pair of shoes, or a boot.”
But while children are more likely in Australia to be injured than adults, they are still far more at risk.
The Child Injury Research Institute, an independent research body, says that children who have suffered head injuries are at an increased risk of developing motor neurone disease, which affects the ability to control muscles, and to breathe and eat.
The Institute says that in the last 10 years, more than 3,300 children in Sydney and Melbourne had a head or neck injury and another 1,700 had a severe traumatic brain or spinal injury.
“When children are injured, they have to be put into a rehabilitation environment,” says Dr Jennifer Todley, a research scientist with the Child Injury Prevention Centre.
“If you do that early on, the brain is damaged and it can’t repair itself.
So that may mean you need to have some kind of support, to get back to normal activities.”
Todleys work is helping to improve child rehabilitation, particularly with the support of the Child Health and Wellbeing Team.
The team is providing support to parents and other carers of children who suffer serious injuries.
They also help parents with research, training and other support.
“This is one area where we really need to take our eye off the ball and work on the prevention of injuries, particularly for children who may have suffered a head, neck or spinal accident,” Todts says.
And this is where parents need to be very, very careful.
They need to remember to protect their children, to
