November is a time to be thankful for all of the blessings in our lives and for many of us; one of the biggest blessings is our children. This month is Child Safety and Protection Month. Take a few minutes to evaluate the safety of your home and update any safety needs. It is much easier to prevent accidents than to deal with the aftermath hence, properly protecting your home is important.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when making your home and vehicle safe:
Vehicle Safety: Regulations regarding child safety restraint systems vary. Make sure you are familiar with the requirements in your area. Check that car seats and boosters are properly installed. If you are unsure how to install them most local police and fire departments can help.
Home Tips: Here are a few things to check in your home to help keep your children safe.
With toddlers and young babies, the best way to make sure your house is safe is to get down at the eye level of your child. Crawl around the floor to get an idea of what is at their eye level. It may seem silly but can be crucial to keep the little ones safe.
