Household Hazards and Kids
The tragic death of Mike Tyson's daughter has reminded millions of people that the home can be a dangerous place for kids. You may have outlet covers and cabinet locks, but those are only the first steps of making your home a safer place for young ones. You don't have to be a public health expert to appreciate the importance of childproofing your home.
CNN has a nice article that outlines some of the common household hazards that can be very dangerous to kids. Even if you don't normally have kids in your house, it's still a good idea to be familiar with these because you never know when children may come to visit. When there are multiple children running around your home, it may become challenging to keep an eye on every one of them. Image source: CNN
