There are 3 basic beliefs you should be aware of to promote safety at home:
1. Children are naturally curious and move quickly.
ACTION: Accidents can happen in an instant so start off your days with a quick overview of the house and eliminate potential dangers, like storing household cleaning products in reach of kids. You can’t predict everything but there are some things you can alleviate.
2. Children explore the world with their mouths.
ACTION: Keep liquid laundry packets out of reach and out of sight of children. Also, be on the look out for things like coins, small toys, and even batteries that might look like a good snack to your two year old.
3. Children want to do what you do.
ACTION: Make clear boundaries about what is acceptable for your kids to do and not do when it comes to household chores.
