3 Ways To Ensure That Your Window Coverings Are Not Harming Your Children
I have always been a component of safety, and anything that can keep people safe, especially children. I was a Paramedic for 24 years, and I have seen a wide variety of injuries and illnesses affecting children. While I have never come across a case of a child choking on a window covering cord, I definitely could see the possibility of it happening.
It’s National Window Covering Safety Month, and I am trying to do my part in spreading the word, so everyone can make an informed choice to do something about it if there are dangers in your home.
3 Ways to Make a Difference
- Install only cordless window coverings or those with inaccessible cords in homes with young children
- Move all cribs, beds, furniture and toys away from windows and window cords, preferably to another wall.
- When window cords are present, ensure that all window cords are out of sight and reach, by shortening or tying them up and away, so that they are inaccessible to young children.
Have you given thought to all of this in your home? If so what are some of the steps you have taken, to ensure the safety of your children? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
