Despite the fact that children are injured each year by hazards inside their home, you can safety proof your home and keep your children unharmed. Talk to your children about dangers of playing with certain products or items in your home. For example, you could tell your children not to touch the stove, stick objects in electrical outlets or play near or on steps. Creating a safe home environment is fairly simple To protect toddlers and young children from falling down steps, install safety gates at the tops of steps. Ensure that the gates are properly installed and donít give way when leaned against. Also, install safety locks or latches on kitchen and bathroom cabinets that store harmful household cooking utensils, chemicals like bleaches, grill lighter fluid and heavy skillets and pans that could fall on your child. Again, test the latches to ensure that they are properly installed. Additional steps that you can take to child safety proof your kitchen include putting anti-scald covers on stove eyes and remaining in the kitchen while the stove is on. Keep pots and pans on back eyes, if possible, while the stove is on to help prevent children from accidentally bumping into pots and pans, causing hot liquids and foods to splash on them. If stoves, refrigerators and other appliances are uneven, install pads beneath them to make them even. Anchors, similar to those used in hotel rooms, can also be installed on furniture to keep furniture from toppling over should children climb atop the furniture. The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission also shares that edge bumpers can keep children from being injured should they fall against furniture. Alarms that should be in every home To protect your child from electrical shocks, place hard-to-remove covers over electrical outlets. Also, make sure that all electrical outlets have a standard plate on them. Engage in fire safety by installing fire alarms throughout your home. Itís also a good idea to store a fire extinguisher in a safe room in your house. Another type of alarm that you can install is a carbon monoxide alarm. Inspect both alarms regularly and replace the alarm batteries no less than once a year. As a family, practice fire and other safety exit drills. This can let you know if older children need more instruction on what to do in the event of natural disasters or a human created emergency. Outdoors child safety proof measures include putting locks on the garage door and placing garage door openers high enough so that young children cannot reach them. Make sure that electric garage door openers are functioning properly. Rakes, shovels, gravel, hammers and other heavy or hazardous objects should be kept out of the reach of young children. Because no child safety proof measures may work all the time, particularly if your child is determined to explore an area or object, educating your child about the dangers of playing with certain items is important. So too is making sure that you and your older children practice safety such as removing toys from the bottom of steps, keeping cords and plastic out of the reach of children and removing water from tubs when they are not in use.

Don't make a mistake that some first time home buyers make. Don't fall in love with a house a few days or weeks after you start shopping for a house. Even if the house is large enough to comfortably fit all of your furniture, you could regret deciding on a house to buy so early.

You could regret buying a house less than a year after you move in

If it helps, think of shopping for a house similar to dating. You won't see everything about a house during the first visit. Enter into a closing deal too soon and you could miss seeing several other houses that would in the long term cost you less money to maintain.

Buy a house too soon and you could over look structural damages at the house. For example, you might miss or overlook water stains on walls, ceilings or floors because you can't stop thinking about how spacious and modern the kitchen is. You also might:

  • Get upset when your spouse or friends point out shortcomings with the house that you've gotten too attached to. Rather than to face the fact that even the house you love has drawbacks, you force yourself and everyone else to perceive of the house as perfect.
  • Pay thousands more for a house than you should have. You want the house so badly, that you're willing to pay nearly anything to own it.
  • Focus on one to three features of the house but ignore the fact that the house is located in an area that adds 30 or more minutes to your work commute.
  • End up buying a house that you love and your spouse or children hate.
  • Take on the need to pay for ongoing upgrades and renovations.
  • Become sad or angry when you realize that you don't like the community that the house is located in. For example, if you love the fast pace of a big city and the house you fell in love with is in the suburbs, you might feel too far away from the center of town. You might feel bored.
  • Lack nearby places to take your children for fun and entertainment.
  • Increase the distance between you and your parents, siblings or friends.

Consider as many factors about your next house move as you can

Getting too attached to a house could cost you months of peace and quiet. Fall in love with a house that needs a lot of love and care and you could convince yourself that,with just a few renovations, you can turn the house into the perfect place to live. Three to four years later, construction might still be going on at the house, annoying you and your family.

It's this type of drawback that can put strain on your relationships. You and your spouse might end up arguing about the house more than you end up bumping heads about anything else. If your children hate the schools that are located in the jurisdiction where the house you fell in love with is, their mood and disposition might take a dip as well. Avoid these headaches by taking an objective approach to house shopping. Consider as many factors about each house you love before you decide to buy.
