Home Safety Advice Every Mother Needs To Hear

Ask any mother and they’ll agree: raising a child is a full-time job in itself. You have to get them ready for school in the morning, prepare their lunch and dinner, take them to the doctor, and provide them with unconditional love and affection. But part of being a mother also includes providing a safe and secure environment for your child.

 

Panic Button

Assuming your home is connected to an alarm system (which it should be), teach your child how and when to use the panic button. Most modern-day alarm systems feature a variety of panic buttons, including Fire, Medical and Intruder. If your child is in danger, he or she can press the button to notify the monitoring company and local authorities.

 

Fire Safety

Fire remains one of the most common causes of accidental death in children. Kids of all ages and backgrounds are naturally drawn to the memorizing allure of fire. There’s just something mysterious about this natural phenomenon that draws them in. Unfortunately, this often results in serious injury or event death, as many children are oblivious to the dangers of fire.

Mothers should talk to their children about fire and the dangers it poses. Tell your child never to touch the oven or stove – whether it’s on or not – and to avoid messing with the fireplace or candles. Furthermore, they should be taught to stop, drop and roll in the event they are ever on fire. If your child needs a little coercing, get down on the floor and show them how it’s done. When your child sees you performing the stop-drop-roll technique, they’ll feel more inclined to do it themselves.

 

Answering The Door

Children are inherently trusting in strangers, which can be a serious hazard. If an intruder is attempting to gain entry into a home, a child may unknowingly allow them in. Whether your or another family member is home or not, children should be taught to never answer the front door. Instead, they should ignore it and let a parent know.

 

911

I know this probably sounds like common sense, but you would be surprised to learn just how many kids are unfamiliar with the 911 emergency number. As a mother, you’ll want to be by your child’s side at all times. But there may be times when the two of you are apart and your child needs help. Teaching your child to pick up the phone and dial 911 in an emergency can prove to be a life-saver. So, sit down and explain to your child that if they are in danger, they should call 911.
