Parents with young children not just have to worry about moving from point A to point B but as well as making sure their kids aren’t hurt during the chaos of the move. There are no set guidelines as to childproofing your home but some common sense can go a long way in keeping your kids out of urgent care! Here are some tips to protecting your children during your moving process.
– Keep an eye out for your sharp items. Keep track on medications and place them on in hard to reach area as soon as possible. Make sure you have your packing tools like your box cutter, knives, scissors, and etc. are in a safe place away from your children.
– Cleaning supplies can be laying around your home during your move, but make sure to have these products out of kids reach too. Any potentially toxic liquids or cleaners can harm children! Using milder or natural cleaning agents rather than harsh chemicals should be taken into consideration if you have children around your home while moving.
– Other objects in your home should be kept in close watch if your children are near potentially dangerous objects as well. For instance, try to keep your children away from electrical outlets, staircases, floor lamps, big plants, toilets, bookshelves, and electrical appliances during your move.
Truthfully, the best way to keep your kids safe while you’re moving is to follow them around for 30 minutes and see what catches their interest. Make sure the area they are in, the object they are interested in can’t hurt them, and that it can occupy them while you are busy moving or packing. The method isn’t foolproof to stop your kids from getting into mischief so it’s the best to go straight to the source.
