Home is where our children learn, grow, live and play. Safety is therefore essential there. It is extremely important to teach your children about safety in the home so that they can always be aware of it and protect themselves at all times. Since national daughters day, Here are some home safety tips you need to teach your kids.
Some Security Tips
An emergency list: your children should have access to the information they need in an emergency. Make a list of all the essential phone numbers such as the police, fire department, poison control center, cell phone numbers of all family members, and so on. Show the list to your children and go over the numbers with them so they know who to call in an emergency. Also, be sure to put the list where everyone can see it.
Opening the front door: Children need to know if they open the door when someone knocks and what to do. Toddlers should ideally not respond, but if they do so for some reason, they should be aware that there might be a stranger behind. Teach them to ask who is behind the door and to tell the person “please wait”. Teach them that they should then come to you and tell you that someone is there. Teach your children to never open the door without telling you first. Sheltered maintenance products and equipment: provide a dedicated and secure location for maintenance equipment and chemicals. If you have small children, teach your older children where to put supplies and supplies after doing housework. This is extremely important because there are many poisonings every year due to neglect.
Be careful with water: young children should never be left near water. Make sure your older children are aware of the dangers that can occur when a small child is left near water. This includes swimming pools, hot tubs, water buckets, wells, etc. It only takes seconds for a young child to drown, and while you don’t need to scare them too much with these details, they do need to know that water can be dangerous.
Safety equipment: if you have any safety equipment in your house (camera, alarm, etc.), explain how it works to your children and how they can turn it on or off (how to enter the code for an alarm in particular).
Fire prevention and fire safety: this is one of the most important things you can teach your children. Teach them about fire prevention and how easily a flame can start a fire in the house. Store lighters and matches at all times. Make sure your children know they are not to use the stove or oven unless you are there. Teach your children about the danger of electrical outlets and tidy up electrical cables as much as possible. Play a pretend game to teach them what to do in case of a fire: bend down, hold a piece of cloth over the mouth, and do not touch the handles of the hot doors when. For older children, you can also teach them how to use a fire extinguisher.
There are other safety tips you can teach your kids, but these are the place to start. Teach them a new tip every week so they can absorb it all bit by bit. The more children know about home safety tips, the less risk of injury or emergency there is, so let your children know the basic rules of safety.
