Children who play with fire are an increasing problem. Very often, the child's fire play begins from curiosity.
However, in some cases, the problem may be more deep-rooted.
The child may turn to fire to vent their feelings of frustration, anger or jealousy.
It may also be a very graphic cry for help with a specific but unspoken problem.
Unfortunately, many parents do not recognise the symptoms, even fewer the cause.
The telltale signs of firesetting
- Small burn holes in carpets
- Charred paper in sinks or wastebaskets
- Matches or lighters hidden in bedrooms
- An unusual fascination with fires
- Unexplainable fires in your home
Why do children set fires?
Children who play with fire do so for various reasons, ranging from natural curiosity to attention seeking. Without help and guidance, firesetting behaviour can develop - leading to more serious consequences such as major injuries, damage to home, schools, property and even death.
What is the programme?
Firewise is predominantly delivered by the Education Team. The first visit by the advisors will attempt to discover more about the young person involved and establish a trusting relationship.
Advisors can, by agreement, visit the home, or school or similar location where young people feel comfortable.
If there is an agency referral parent or carer consent will be needed.
The duration of advisor involvement may vary depending upon the specific circumstances and problems. Advisors will be available to answer questions from parents or carers.
It’s important that firesetting behaviour should be recognised and dealt with to ensure that it does not continue into adulthood. Parents and carers are urged to consider their own actions and how they may influence the behaviour of children for whom they are responsible.
‘Safety in Action’ events encourage children to recognise hazards and take action to keep themselves and others safe.
