When we become a parent, we want to spend as much time with our children as possible. We want their younger years to be filled with joy, happiness and fun, and as a result of this we try our best to keep them entertained and content through a range of different activities. As they get older, their needs will change which will mean we will not necessarily have to take as much time to think about what we should do with them, and where we should take them for fun days out. When a child is young, they can be content by simply playing with their toys, reading books, colouring or painting. But, as their age progresses they will be happy in their room, playing games, using the internet or catching up with school work.
Making your home safe for your beloved little ones (something a genius parent aptly titled ‘toddlerproofing’) can sometimes seem like an endless task. Just when you’re sure that you have all grounds covered, something else ends up being a problem and you’re running to the first aid box for the third time in a week yet again.
According to Safe Kids Worldwide, more than 3 million kids get hurt at home, the one place they are supposed to be safe from the world.
There are plenty of simple ways to ensure your children are safe from injury and it doesn’t have to be mission impossible when trying to create a healthy home environment.
Follow these fairly easy preventative steps and you’ll be well on your way to being parent of the year.
