How we can make our Home and Environment for our Children
Each year, a large number of people succumb to accidents, and almost a third of these are children under 18 years of age. Accidents are also an important cause of serious injuries and disabilities. Fortunately, most accidents and injuries are preventable. By taking simple precautions, parents can make their home and environment safe for their child.
INFANTS AND PRESCHOOLERS:
Accidents often occur because we as parents are not aware of how children get into dangerous situations. Children explore everything. This innocent curiosity can lead to major accidents in children. Parents need to take every possible precaution to protect their children from accidents and injuries.
Parents of children who live in high-rise buildings should take all possible precautions to prevent falls. Never compromise safety for aesthetics. Supervise small children at all times, especially if windows are open. Avoid placing furniture, on which children may climb, near windows or on balconies. Prefer using window grills rather than fixed grills. Remember that windows are an important route of escape in the event of a fire. Discourage or prohibit children from playing on roofs and balconies, especially those that are not adequately fenced. Encourage the use of ground-level safe play areas, such as public parks and playgrounds. Prevent falls from beds by keeping railings on infant beds.
Aspirations and Choking
During baths, the temperature of the water should be checked to make sure it is not too hot. During meals, keep infants away from hot foods and drinks. Never carry a baby while drinking hot drinks. Children should not be allowed to play in the kitchen area. Electric irons should always be out of reach of infants. Supervised use of firecrackers is strongly recommended.
Medicines and household products should be always outreach of children, especially those that come with attractive packs or colored solutions with sweet odors. Never use bottles that usually contain edibles e.g. soft drink or milk bottles to store other chemicals e.g. phenyl or massage oils or kerosene.

Electrical Shocks and Burns
Electrical sockets should be taped or sealed or plugged.
Pet lovers should be stressed the importance of immunizing their pets. Children should be taught not to tease or have contact with stray animals. School-age children should be taught how to approach and handle pet animals.
Parents are often not aware of what their children can do, and children cannot judge what is safe. Fortunately, it takes only a few steps to prevent most accidents.
