3 Ways To Make Your Home Kid-Friendly and Safe
Moving into a new home can be an exciting, yet stressful, process. In the mix of things, you shouldn’t have to worry about the safety of your children around your Lifestyle home. Use these tips to make sure that every area of your home is childproof and safe for your kids to play in.
Start With Rules
In order to ensure that your children understand what is safe and what is not, you need to set some ground rules. Identify certain rooms that your children are allowed to play in, and those they are not able to be in. For instance, many families store power tools and other hazardous materials in their basement. Therefore, their children are not allowed in this room in order to guarantee that the kids are safe and sound.
Tell your children which rooms are off limits and which are completely okay. If you catch them disobeying your rules, explain to them why certain rooms are off limits!
Avoid Glass Tables and Decorations
In an attempt to keep your children safe and decorate your house accordingly, try to avoid using glass tables in your home. Glass tables can easily break if there is an accident or someone was to fall. In addition, glass decorations can easily be picked up and dropped, resulting in shards of glass all over the floor and your home. Use other materials for your decorations, tables, and other areas of your home.
Keep Valuables Hidden
If you have anything incredibly valuable in your home, it is in your best interest to hide it out of reach from your children. Kids are naturally curious, and will search all over the house for something interesting to play with. If you have any jewelry, valuable items, or something that may hurt the child, make sure to always keep it out of their reach. From lost jewelry to unfortunate accidents, you do not want your children getting hold of your valuable items.
