It is in their best interest and safety to be taught about the measures they have to take when dealing with electricity. Electrical Association 

Philadelphia-Based Gen3 Electric shared an article on electrical safety tips children should be aware of.

Cherry Land Electric Cooperative also shared more safety measures for children.

“Fly your kite far away from power lines or substations. Fly kites and model airplanes in large open areas like a park or a field, safely away from trees and overhead power lines. If a kite gets stuck in a tree that’s near power lines, don’t climb up to get it. Contact your local electric cooperative for assistance. The kite and the string may conduct electricity—sending it right through you to the ground. Ask a grown-up for help when you need to use something that uses electricity. DO look up and look out for power lines before you climb a tree. The electricity can go right through the tree branch—and right through you!”
