Returning home from work, you are drowned with exhaustion. But as soon as you enter the house, all your fatigue and tiredness fly away. How? Well, because you see the smiling and vibrant face of your beloved children. Their excitement and happiness of seeing you are so magical that it makes you forget all your worries.
At that moment, you feel euphoric and blessed to have such a loving family. However, generally in the moments like these, some negative thoughts also come to mind. Thoughts that we don’t want to talk about because we know that they are hurtful.
Nonetheless, you don’t let yourself get affected by those thoughts. Instead, you make a promise to yourself. What promise? You promise that no matter what, you will always protect your beloved family. You’ll stay by their side to safeguard them from every possible danger.
It is a lifelong promise, but right from this instant, you’ll start working on it. How? Well, first of all, you need to ensure that your house is childproof. So that in your absence, you can stay stress-free. That’s why in this article we’ll tell you how you can make your home safe.
Keep all the dangerous equipment out of their reach.
Every kid is playful and curious. To satisfy their curiosity, they tend to search for different things and play with them. However, not every piece of equipment is safe for them. That’s why you should ensure that all the dangerous equipment such as candles, matches, lighters, glasses, and photo frames are away from their reach.
In addition to this, it is also essential that the furniture have edge guard cushion corners. So that they don’t hurt themselves.
Replace traditional fireplace with electric
Having a fireplace in the house is good, as it’ll help keep the place warm and cozy. However, instead of traditional ones, you should use an electric wall mount fireplace as it is much safer. You must be wondering- how? Well, an electric fireplace will not create any smoke and ashes. Thus the air will be pure and clean.
That’s not all!
As they use electricity, there will be no actual fire, so you don’t have to worry about your beloved child being near the fire.
Ensure that all the windows and doors are properly closed
According to the CPSC (U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission), there have been numerous cases where children accidentally entangled themselves in them. In fact, did you know that corded windows are one of the most dangerous things in the home? That’s the reason why you should remove them from your house and use cordless ones instead.
Moreover, you also have to ensure that all the windows and doors are entirely closed when you go out. Windows should not open more than 3 inches. Besides that, you should also install window guards.
To sum it all up!
Your kids are your heartbeat because they make you feel alive. They are a blessing, and we know that you love them with all your heart. However, along with showering your love to them, you should also ensure that they live in a safe environment.
Be their superhero and protect them!
