Tips to Make Your Home Child Friendly


Kids love to explore their environment, so it's very important to make sure your home is safe for your children.
Here we list a few things to check out:

Preventing falls and hurt
·         You can install safety guards across doors, stairs and balconies.
·         Install grills outside the windows.
·         Leave a low power light on at night to make it easier for your kids to go to the washroom and make their way to your bedroom without tripping.
·         A stepping tool by the toilet or low level towel hooks would make it easier for your child to reach out for things easily.
·         Add cushioned corner guards or edging to side tables, chairs and other sharp-cornered surfaces.
·         Secure drawers and cabinets so that they’re unopenable.

Preventing Poisoning
·         Keep medicines away from your child’s reach. Store them up high in a locked cupboard.
·         Keep cosmetics, soaps, shampoos or any cleaning substance away from sight.
·         Also ensure all of your houseplants are of the non-toxic variety.
·         Make sure paint and other hazardous substances are stored in airtight containers and kept on high shelves.

Preventing Burns
·         Keep matches, lighters and tobacco products away from kids.
·         Keep toy batteries away as they can leak acid, causing serious burns.
·         Use stove-knob covers to prevent kids from turning on the burners.

Preventing Fires
·         Install at least one smoke alarm at your home. Check alarm batteries regularly and replace them annually.

Preventing Suffocation and Strangulation
·         Remove items that could strangle or suffocate your child. These items could include cushions, cords, sharp items, carpentry and gardening tools, ropes, sacks, boxes, packaging, etc.
·         Vacuum regularly to suck up any small item that can cause choking.

Water Safety
·         If you have a pool, install a fence or self-locking gate.

Electrical Safety
·         Install safety switches, which cut power off quickly to avoid electrocution.
·         Replace electrical appliances and cords if they’re worn out.
·         Use power point covers.
Here’s to a creating a happy, safe environment for your child to grow up in!
