SAFETY AT HOME – ARE YOUR KIDS REALLY SAFE?

Do you ever wonder if your kids are really safe at home…is there more that you can do to protect them?

In my previous Safety at Home posts, I have listed many potential dangers that you as parents can remove from your home to prevent accidents before they happen.

This post will deal with a variety of additional possible dangers to the health and safety of your kids…read below to more fully to discover kids safety tips you may not have thought of.

  • If you have a fireplace, space heater, etc. put barriers around it to prevent your kids from being burned.
  • Have syrup of Ipecac handy for accidental poisonings, but be sure to call your physician or poison control center before using it.
  • Be sure that plastic bags, broken toy pieces, screws and other potential choking hazards are thrown away or put in an area children can’t get to.
  • Have all indoor and outdoor stairways and entrances well lit and not obstructed.
  • Be sure all bathrooms and bedrooms can be unlocked from the outside.
  • Keep matches and lighters away from children’s reach.
  • Keep at least two exits clear in case of fire or other emergency.
  • Check all electrical cords for cracks and fraying.

Be sure that all outlets and extension cords are not overloaded.

  • It is best not to use space heaters.  If they are used, make sure they are in safe condition.  Never plug them into an extension cord.  Do not place them near drapes or furnishings.
  • Do not use the stove/oven as a heater.
  • Wallpaper and paint should not be chipping or peeling.
  • Keep purses, backpacks, etc. out of children’s reach because they may contain medicines, hard candies or other items that can harm kids.

It is always wise to call for help whenever you’re uncomfortable with a medical situation.
For Emergencies, Call 911
