Abstract

Aim: To investigate the association between children and their families' daily life routines and the implementation of safety practices in their homes. Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted using a self-administered questionnaire among parents of 3-year-old children, who visited a public health center in Tokyo for their health checkups. Associations between the implementation of safety practices and family and children's basic daily routines were assessed using a multivariate logistic regression. Results: Data from 336 parents were analyzed. Three items were found to be significantly related to the non-implementation of safety practices, such as “television-watching behavior: after 8:00 p.m.” (adjusted odds ratio = 1.88, p =.02), “washing hands: not every time after getting home” (adjusted odds ratio = 2.24, p =.02), and “Family Routines Inventory: lower score” (a measurement of the routinization of a family's daily life; adjusted odds ratio =.83, p =.01). Conclusion: The cumulative results suggest that the lack of safety practices implementation signify nonadherence to daily routine practices by parents.
