Safety First: Kid-Proofing Your Home
Ask any parent or grandparent; children provide an endless source of joy in the household. Children have a uniquely positive view of the world, and their enthusiasm can be infectious. Underneath all the joys of raising children, however, comes a great deal of responsibility. Fran Campbell Team wants to remind you that it is absolutely crucial to ensure that your home provides a safe environment for the next generation. If you're expecting children in your home soon, consider following these suggestions to childproof your home. Electrical Outlets At best, electric shocks are unpleasant - at worst, they're dangerous. Block electrical outlets in your home from inquisitive fingers with plugs, electrical tapes, or safety latches. Heavy Objects and Furniture Toddlers have a knack for unintentionally knocking things over. If possible, bolt heavy desks and dressers to the wall. Push televisions or other heavy objects farther back so they are out of reach of the youngsters.
