Never leave the kitchen while you are cooking. Tell your children not to use the microwave without your supervision or get help from other adults in the house if they want to cook some popcorn. Restrict them in using the gas stove and ovens.
Anticipate drowning possibilities
Children love to play with water. Always be on the lookout when kids take a bath whether they use the bath tubs or when you let them use the Jacuzzi or the swimming pool. Supervise them closely at all times.
Prevent falls, electrocution and unwanted injuries through installing kidproof safety gadgets
Get those windows covered with steel bars. Cover sharp edges (table and chairs) and corners with rubberized corner protector. Install fire alarms. Cover those electrical sockets and outlets. Arrange and keep appliance electrical cords away. Keep all sharp utensils such as knives or scissors in a locked drawer. If you will buy a new washing machine, make sure it has the child safety feature.
