Knowing the dangers can greatly reduce the risks of accidents in the home. I have seen two children fall from bedroom windows, not my own I hasten to add, but it just goes to show how often this happens. I know someone who was burnt badly by the kitchen cooker when they were a child just by standing too close on a cold morning and their pyjamas caught alight. I have heard of so many children who have drunk dangerous chemicals which have accidently been left in their reach. Even my current partner nearly drowned as a baby in the bath.
It's so easy to find out what dangers lie in your home and to protect your family against them. Betta Living are supporting the Child Safety week campaign and have a list of Top Tips for Child Safety in the home.
They also have a great interactive quiz for Kitchen Awareness which you may like to try. See how aware you are.
The home can be a dangerous place for children who are naturally inquisitive and often end up in some kind of accident this infographic shows the results of a survey by BettaLiving.
So be aware of the dangers and keep your children safe. Awareness is such a good way of preventing these accidents.
