Abstract

BACKGROUND: Children under age of 5 years are now becoming the victims of unintentional injury at home and on the roads. Many studies have explored the parent factors, environmental factors and child factors singularly. The present study aims at determining the relationship between children’s injury behavior, parent’s injury prevention behavior and stress, by comparing injured and non- injured children in the age of 2-5 years. METHODS: A descriptive study design was used to assess the children’s injury behavior, parent’s injury prevention behavior and parental stress among parents of both injured and non- injured children (n=100) on their second day of admission to the wards using modified standard and structured questionnaire. RESULTS: Mothers were the primary respondents as parents. Children’s injury behavior (t=17.09; p=0.001), Parent’s injury prevention behavior(t=2.53; p=0.01) and stress (t=10.87; p=0.001) showed significant difference between injured and non- injured group and, associated significantly(χ=75.4;p=0.001), (χ2=4.1;p=0.04), (χ2=15.43;p=0.001), with injured group as well. Mothers were the primary care taker of the children .Boys predominates in having higher injury behavior, younger age of mothers and lesser education status were having poor parent’s prevention behavior and severe stress was found among mothers from urban residence and elderly mothers. CONCLUSION: Children’s injury behavior, parent’s injury prevention behavior and stress significantly influence the occurrence of injury. Modifying the child’s injury behavior adopting appropriate injury prevention behavior by parents and parents being stress free are necessary to prevent child from getting injured.
