Is Your House Safe For A Visiting Toddler?
A reminder of the trivia’s that we forget when our own kids grow up and we have toddlers visiting.
For me toddlers are the heartbeat of the planet. They make this world smile with their little antics and even just by their presence. Their cackling and giggling changes the entire ambience in a gathering; I have even seen people laughing at a funeral where a toddler was there to cheer up the world.
But these little heart winners can become the cause of a heart ache when they get into trouble because of their inquisitive nature. It is very heartbreaking to see a toddler getting hurt while venturing in or around the house. What has to be seen is that a toddler is never responsible for anything. He can act anyway at anytime without caring for the repercussions. It’s the adults who have to understand and make things safer for their visits.
