Some simple ideas to make sure kids are safe around the home.

A few quick tips to make your home a safer place for young kids

In the kitchen,
Kids under 10 generally haven’t developed the fine motor skills to safely use a sharp knife. This means it’s a good idea to always keep knives stored away in secure draws up high.

In the bathroom,
Keep all medicines and chemicals out of sight and out of reach, preferably in a locked/child-proof latched cabinet or container.

In general,
Toys often find themselves scattered over the floor which presents a tripping danger. Teach your kids good habits of putting toys away tidily after they have played with them.
