Safety is paramount.
Children are learning about the world and their surroundings as they grown and develop so we must ensure we provide a safe haven for them.
Accidents will happen with most accidents occurring in the home.
We can be prepared and alert to this and take steps to help to reduce the chances of accidents occurring. Children often lack the skills and/or development to protect themselves and be aware of dangers. It’s our responsibility as adults to provide an environment where a child is, and feels, safe.
Never under-estimate the power of supervision. Most accidents can be alleviated with good supervision.
