• Have enough cupboards/drawers to store the things having a probability of causing harm (i.e. medicines, cosmetics etc.), if tested or engulfed by the kids. It is advisable to look at the hazardous things and find appropriate space to keep them out of your child’s reach.
• Keep the household appliances (i.e. iron, hair dryer, kitchen appliances etc.) away from your child’s reach. Also, make sure that the cables/wire of various electronic items are not hanging on the floor and use electrical socket safety covers. Similarly, the tiny objects (i.e. coins, a piece of jewellery etc.) too have the risk of troubling kids. So they should be stocked wisely.
