The best way to keep kids safe at home is to use your eyes and ears, and keep close watch of your kids everywhere those little feet take them. While childproofing may seem like an overwhelming chore, take a few minutes to complete these basic tasks.

Inside

  • Keep knives and breakable objects up high and out of reach of little hands.
  • Put safety gates at the top and bottom of stairs.
  • Outlet _baby
  • Place plastic covers over electrical outlets and power strips.
  • Install a carbon monoxide detector in every sleeping area of the house to protect your family from this poisonous, deadly gas.
  • Bolt shelves to the wall and secure TVs to keep them from falling on a child, and keep your child's bed or crib away from windows which can shatter during an earthquake.
  • Protect from poisons — store household cleaning products, medication, hand sanitizer, bug spray, lotions, and makeup in locked cabinets or up high.

 

Outside

  • Install a fence that's at least four feet high around your pool or hot tub to prevent drowning, and install a self-latching gate that is higher than a young child's reach.
  • Never let your child play near grills, lawnmowers, or power tools.

  • Return gardening tools, auto parts, pesticides, fertilizer, and sharp objects like nails and screws to locked storage containers when you're finished using them.
  • Empty buckets and small inflatable pools after every use.
  • Make sure play equipment in the backyard is sturdy and age-appropriate for your child.
