Child-proofing a house can be difficult to do, at times, as children change so rapidly, and so do the risk factors. But, with a little guidance and constant supervision, you can keep your child safe from serious dangers, especially in today’s world when most of us are home ALL THE TIME.
To help you out, here are ten easy tips on how you can effectively child-proof your home:
Sometimes, even when we can’t smell it, the air quality inside our home can grow poor. And though dust and other allergens may not bother you, they can aggravate a younger person’s health, and it may lead to asthma or developed allergies. To avoid this compromising situation, have your ductwork cleaned regularly.
Plants are, indeed, refreshing addition to your household. However, most people aren’t aware that some plants are poisonous, others need potting extras (gravel, mulch) that could make a child sick if eaten, and many of the best decorations (marbles, rocks) are choking hazards. So, to keep things running smoothly around the house, it may be best to wait ’til your toddler is old enough to be responsible for watering them.
