Home is a place where infants discover and grow. They are in search of love, concern, and comfort. The same place turns a reason for drastic injuries and accidental deaths for the little ones. Therefore, it’s important to keep their safety.

Preventing poising.
Many poisonous substances are spotted in our houses which we have no idea in what way will cause harm to our kids. From fertilizers to antifreeze, medicine to makeup, lethal items show up throughout our homes. For this reason medicines and every item that might harm your child should be kept out of their reach. Pills and liquids shouldn't be kept in candy boxes or soft drink cans. 

Nail polish removers, aspirin bottles silica gel packets and vitamins bottles shouldn't be kept on places where they can get in touch easily. Always check the expiry date of every item giving your kid, expired items must be thrown away before they cause some serious problems. 

Electric shock injuries.
Not only young children but adults also experience electric shock due to lack of preventions. Toddlers bite into electrical cords or use their fingers to play with the sockets. Serious steps should be taken to ensure the safety of your kids. Wires should be insulated properly, tuck wires away from your child's reach. 

Small appliances should be kept away safety switches should be installed and use power point covers. Electronic toys should be us checked as they are often signs of wear and tear, don't overload electrical sockets. Adult supervision must be provided. 

Preventing drowning.
Water safety is also one of the most important measures to be taken. Never leave a baby unattended in the bath, and adult supervision should be provided when a child is in the bathroom. Drowning in the pool is also one of the most dangerous reasons for deaths.

Fencing should be installed on all sides of the pool and all toys must be removed from the pool when kids are done with swimming this is to ensure the safety of your kid. 

Household accidents.
Children are unaware of the things that might hurt them and want to explore everything in the house. It is important to watch your young kids all time, and stop them to run over a hot stove and burn themselves. Fire and burns, suffocation, choking, falls, poisons and guns are the common reasons of home injury deaths.

Choosing safe toys.
Toys are fun and important part of your child's development but each year kids are treated in hospital emergency departments for toys related injuries. Age group of children is specified on the box, so choose the right toys for him/her. 

Childproofing is important in order to guarantee the safety of your child. Children are unconscious of things that can harm them it is a duty of adults to direct them and tell them the difference between good and bad. Start talking to your child about the safety measures he must take. Program emergency numbers into your home phones and mobile phones. Stock up on first-aid supplies.

  7. Non so perché non mi appare più l'italiano dei tuoi post ma ad occhio e croce il senso dell'articolo dovrei averlo capito anche se faccio una fatica bestiale a leggere bene in inglese. Da mamma ti dico che hai centrato il punto di ogni possibile rischio e problematica. Con un bambino piccolo in casa dobbiamo stare attenti a tutto senza sottovalutare niente e avere non due ma 100 occhi! ;P
    Bacione bellezza e buona serata! :*
