Ensuring your little ones stay safe and keep out of trouble during those holiday visits.
During the holiday season there is a lot more visiting that goes on. There may be open houses, or family gathering or simply dropping by at friends or relatives to say hello. With kids in tow, parents need to be extra vigilant when visiting particularly when the kids are toddlers and preschoolers explains Pamela Fusselli, Executive Director of SafeKids Canada. “When parents are visiting other homes or places like their grandparents, aunts and uncles, or friends, be sure that the medications that are in the house are not accessible to their children. Often times especially with older adults there are medications around. And when the grandparents or aunts and uncles are visiting the child’s own home, they need to keep their purses zipped u p and in a closet somewhere because children will explore and will want to get into Gramma’s purse and see what she’s got in there.”
