It’s important for kids to be active, but during times of prolonged exercise, especially during hot weather, Southern California kids can become dehydrated. Thirst is not a good indicator of dehydration, when your child says he’s thirsty, he may already be suffering from dehydration.
Ironically, swimming increases the risk of dehydration because water activities forestall feelings of thirst.
Encourage your Southern California child to drink extra fluids before an activity begins and continue drinking every 20 to 30 minutes during the course of the event. Try to schedule practices and games in the mornings or evenings, especially during the Southern California summer sports season to avoid the hottest part of the day.
Signs of dehydration can include:
lack of, or dark yellow, urine
cool, dry skin
lethargy, or irritability
When treating a child for dehydration, water is best for the first hour or two, then sports drinks with electrolytes can be added. Most 90266 zip code area parks and ball fields are near convenience stores that carry Gatorade or Propel, but it’s best to keep a bottle or two in the car. If hydration is not restored, hurry to the nearest Manhattan Beach emergency room.
