Home is where the heart is—and parents want a safe, healthy home for their children! There are easy ways to help make your home a safe place for your child to grow and thrive. Some safety tips:


  • Make sure cleaning products and other toxic materials are locked up safely.

  • Check your smoke detectors regularly to ensure they're working.
  • Keep doors to bathrooms and laundry rooms closed so young children don't wander in there.
  • If you keep a gun in your home, keep it unloaded and locked away.
  • Keep knives and other sharp objects out of reach of children.
  • Plug outlet covers into unused electrical outlets.
  • Make sure window blind cords are always out of children's reach.
