Identify the risk areas
Making a home safe for your child means you have to look at your home in a whole new light. You will need to assess your home for lurking dangers. Some potentially dangerous areas may include-stairs, windows, kitchen, bathroom, yard etc.
Prevent your kids from Entering Kitchen or bathroom
To keep your kids from entering kitchen or bathroom, you can have safety gates installed at the kitchen and bathroom entrance.
Make the stairs safe
Never leave things lying on the stairs that could cause someone to trip up. Stairs should always be well-lit and carefully maintained. You can even safeguard against falls by putting gates in front of staircases.
Get a home Alarm system
Get an efficient home alarm system like ADT alarm system that lets you keep an eye on your kids even when you are not around them.
Remove Electrical Dangers
To prevent electrical injuries you can install self-closing outlet covers that slide back into place when the outlet is not in use. Also, to prevent a child from grabbing hold of an electrical Cord, you can have a cord holder, which makes the cord too short to reach over the edge of a table or work surface.
Safeguard your windows
As soon as toddlers are able to get around and explore their surroundings, they may start trying to climb up and look out of windows. If windows are not locked, put stoppers on them so they can't be opened by more than 10cm.
