As parents, we all want our children to be safe. No matter how safe we think our children are at home, the fact is that every day, thousands of children are injured needlessly due to avoidable household accidents. Every year, nearly 4.5 million children are injured seriously in their homes.
Though we tend not to think about it, poisoning, shock, head injuries, broken bones or even drowning can occur in our own homes. Though not an insurance policy, effective childproofing can create a safe environment for your children in your home. An average home has dozens of danger zones for children. Unfortunately, most of the danger zones go undiscovered by parents until a child gets hurt.
Childproofing identifies these zones and eliminates the possibility of danger before your child has a chance to find them. While we may want to, we can’t watch our children every moment of the day. It only takes a split second for an accident to happen. You can reduce the chance of accidents within the home by having your home childproofed. Childproofing is the best investment you can make for your child.
