The first time we visited my parents after Levi started crawling, we brought extra outlet covers and moved their decorative accents to higher shelves. Now that Levi’s older, there are additional safety concerns to consider when we’re at their house, such as playing too close to the (non-gated) stairs, reaching for objects on countertops, and opening doors.
I wrote a post for The Neighborhood about all the little things you can do to prevent a big injury at home. From falls to burns to poisoning, this child safety checklist offer ways to minimize accidents in the house — whether it’s your house or somebody else’s. You may want to check it out before traveling to visit family and friends on Thanksgiving (or forward it to your parents!).
What precautions do you take when bringing your kids to somebody else’s home?
