Abstract : Trauma is the leading killer of children, and traumatic brain injury( TBI) accounts for over 50 of those deaths. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention( CDC) in the US estimates that over,000 children die each time because of TBI, and numerous thousands of survivors will endure lifelong disabilities. The methodical study of nonage head injury is presently in its immaturity. lately, guidelines have been published in an trouble to regularize practice within the United States. Importantly, these guidelines were developed largely as extrapolations from adult studies combined with expert opinion. With an estimated prevalence of 230 cases per 100,000 children, traumatic brain injury continues to be a serious issue for paediatric health. Each year, between 100,000 and 200,000 new paediatric TBI cases are reported. This translates to a frequency of one case per two to three twinkles. The leading cause of death and disability in children is traumatic brain injury. Every year, reports of 3000 to 4000 paediatric deaths are made. The majority of reported death or irreversible brain injury is caused by 10 to 15 severe TBI episodes in infants and toddlers (Glasgow coma scale (GCS) score 8). The prevalence of pediatric TBI is distributed unevenly within three age groups( 0- 4 times, 5- 10 times, 11- 15 times) grounded upon data from the Traumatic Coma Data Bank. Our end to take over a study on this content was to bring to light this common reality which is unexpectedly an fluently missed but a preventable cause of morbidity and mortality. Not numerous studies have been carried out on this condition which leads to a lack of knowledge. Fall from height( sundecks rooftops) is a major concern in the civic population. Cascade are one of the leading causes of injuries and deaths in children and the maturity of cascade do at home. A public health approach to the problem of injury emphasizes relating the burden, understanding the determinants, enforcing interventions and assessing them to see whether and how they work. therefore through this study, it bring to notice that this deadly condition can be averted by introductory mindfulness during construction of house itself.
