How to Make These Spaces Safer for Kids
- Little ones should be restricted access to unfinished basements where there might be exposed to installation, wiring or other dangers.
- Automatic garage door openers should be locked in cars and kept away from children. Your garage door should also automatically reverse direction upon contact. If it doesn’t, consider getting this feature installed and be sure to test the door regularly.
- Hazards to keep locked or out of reach: power tools, gardening tools, fertilizers, pesticides, paint, toxic craft supplies, laundry detergents or other cleaning supplies.
