Be careful around lawn mowers | Health


Recently, there was a segment in the cartoon pages of a grandparent-like individual mowing and allowing a toddler sitting on his lap to steer the riding lawn mower. Needless to say, there was a collision and humorous dialogue after the incident. This cartoon demonstrates many positive actions such as the importance of collaboration between adults and children and the importance of household chores in the development of children. The accident also demonstrates that children cannot be expected to control machinery, especially dangerous machinery.

There are at least 17 types of lawnmowers, from the traditional push mower invented in 1830 to ride-on tractors. Some run on gasoline, others on batteries or electricity. Some are self-propelled, others have to be pushed. Some hover and some are even robotic. As they are designed to cut, all are dangerous, and the more powerful they are, the more dangerous they are.
