5 dangers your child faces when alone at home
At some point your child might have to be left alone at home. Here are some ways to make it safer for them.
Electrical appliances can be a danger. Plug holes should be covered and make sure that they know what can shock them.
Rule Number One should always be: Never open the door to anyone. Stranger danger is very real and people try their luck when they know kids are alone at home.
Pool safety should be taught at an early age. Drowning often happen in the blink of an eye. There should be no swimming without an adult present.
Children will sometimes want to cook for themselves. This can teach them independence but they can also learn a valuable lesson in how hot stoves can be. They should rather learn with adult supervision.
Lock up household chemicals and make sure all your medications are in safe places. Older children won't put random things in their mouths but their littler siblings might.
